Soak up the culture...
The town of Novigrad is a historical, architectural gem, reflected in its ancient city walls and centuries-old buildings, which parents can appreciate alongside the exciting activities that the natural landscape has to offer.
The area is also a gastronomic delight as local restaurants take pride in their traditional cuisine. Get ready for a serving of mouth-watering seafood dishes, flavoursome Mediterranean recipes and delightful Istrian wines!
What makes Novigrad so ideal for families is the fact that it is a perfect base for some thrilling experiences. The crystal waters of Novigrad Bay are perfect for venturing out onto the water in a sea kayak, and the nearby Paklenica National Park in Starigrad is home to awe-inspiring, dramatic rock formations which are great for exploring on a hike. You can spend the day cycling through Krka River National Park, admiring the phenomenal set of seven waterfalls and a trip to Cetina River will have you white-water rafting over the fast, foaming waters.
