Novigrad is a historic scenic Dalmatian town situated on the southern coast of the Novigrad Sea, in a long and narrow bay at the foot of the Velebit mountains. Built in the shape of trapezoid, bounded by walls whose traces have only been preserved, it emerged on the ruins of a fort on the hilltop which descends to the sea.
The river Zrmanja flows into the Novigrad sea, making it rich with fish and shellfish. Thanks to a fortunate combination of natural and cultural beauty, the small coves in the shadow of pine trees and beaches where you can swim, Novigrad is a real paradise for every guest. On the river Zrmanja you can enjoy rafting, canoeing and kayak rides, while from Novigrad you can easily visit the national parks (Paklenica, Plitvice, Krka, Kornati), the Velebit Nature Park, Cerovačke caves (the largest cave complex in Croatia) and the Vrana ornithological reserve and lake Vransko.
