The Romantic Walking Trail of Novigrad
Novigrad is a pearl of northwestern Adriatic, boasting one of Istria’s most beautiful walking trails along the sea. Taking walk there at night, at this time of year, when it’s not swarming with summer tourists is magical. You will enjoy almost mystical surroundings and you may also hear just how your loved one’s heart beats faster when they’re close to you.
Along with a superb Muscato, the sweet wine from the north of Istria perfect for a toast to romance, Momjan hides another special treat: the old hilltop fort with a gorgeous view of Mirna’s estuary. Mirna is one of the most beautiful Istrian rivers. Many say that the feeling of serenity a visit to the old fort provides motivated them to confess their deepest feelings to their loved ones.
Savudrija Lighthouse – A Guiding Light for Lost Lovers
The lighthouse is the venue of count Metternich’s tragic love story. He had it built in order to share his happiness with his beloved who, unfortunately, died from a horrible illness before the lighthouse was finished. For years, this lighthouse has also served as a guide for all those returning from the open sea, hoping to see their loved ones soon. Who wouldn’t be inspired to romance by such memories?
This romantic little town will make you want to walk hand in hand. With a glass of local wine, taking in the view of vineyards and the blue sea stretching to the horizon will remind you that you can enjoy the romance of Northwest Istria during the upcoming summer’s warm nights.
