City harbour Mandrač (Novigrad, Istria)

City harbour, the popular Mandrač, in history was the centre of Novigrad’s life as a small fishing village. Once a central place of economic activities, Mandrač maintained in part, the status of a fishing port, thereby continuing the old tradition, which connects Novigrad and its people to the sea. Therefore, Mandrač is one of the most important symbols of Novigrad, which gives the city a recognizable Mediterranean charm.

City walls Novigrad (Istria)

The historic center of the city was once entirely surrounded by the city walls, the course of which remains noticeable also today, as a symbol of the city. In the 13th century, with the fall of the city and under the rule of Venice, the walls were rebuilt on the remains of Late Antique fortifications. The walls were renewed repeatedly. An older square tower stands next to the former city gate, while the round towers originate from the Renaissance period. Thanks to its walls, the city of Novigrad is a member of the international association WTFC.
