Parts of the Medieval walls along the sea are definitely one of the trademarks of Novigrad. The stone walls with a battlement had a defensive purpose in ancient times, while today, thanks to their being so picturesque, they are the favorite photographic motif of visitors.
The Mandrač fishing port, located close to the center of Novigrad, is an ideal place for walking and looking at the anchored boats. It is also the place where local events are often organized, especially the gastronomic ones.
The Bell Tower
The bell tower of the church of St. Pelagius and St. Maximus from the 19th century is a particularly recognizable motif of Novigrad, thanks to its dominant appearance. The top of the bell tower is decorated by a statue of St. Pelagius, the patron of the city, and the loud sound of the bell will always give you the time of day.
The Lapidarium is a perfect blend of old and new – a modernly designed space into which the silent witnesses of the ancient past have been flawlessly incorporated. This museum contains a rich collection of stone monuments, including those dating back to the 1st century. Thanks to the cozy interior that is quite pleasing to the eye, you will want to stay here for a little longer.
If you love ships and sea stories, go to Gallerion! In the old town core, there is a small but content-rich museum with a collection of Austro-Hungarian Imperial and Royal Navy. Boat models, old uniforms, maps, photographs, and ship instruments are just a small piece of the exhibited items which will tell you the fascinating story of the life of seafarers and sailors as it used to be.
