Novigrad is small holiday town situated on the west coast of Istria, on the delta of the river Mirna. The city developed originally on a small island and in the XVIII century was connected with the mainland. On this former island today is the town centre with its medieval structure. Over the centuries the name changed from the original Emona to Emonia and later to Neapolis and then finally to its present name Civitas Nova (new city). In parallel with the changes of name were changes in domination by the Byzantines, French, Venetians, Austrians and again the French until the arrival of the Italians. All these civilizations have left an indelible trace and a rich cultural heritage.
