Novigrad is a wonderful coastal town, located halfway between Poreč and Umag. It is our favorite town in Istria and perhaps the most overlooked town too.
With so many great restaurants in Istria, fresh and locally sourced food, and yummy local dishes, there is no excuse for eating badly in Istria. Istria, Croatia’s most visited region, is the best place in all of Croatia when it comes to food and wine.
We’ve decided to list top reasons to visit Istria in Croatia in hope to make Istria a part of your Croatia itinerary. After running this blog for awhile, interacting with our readers, and just by looking into our most read posts, we realized that overseas visitors, particularly those coming from US, Canada, and Australia, often overlook and skip Istria on their typical Croatian itineraries.
