Another Record Tourist Season for the Istrian Town of Novigrad




For the third year in a row the Istrian town of Novigrad has had a tourist season to remember…

Once again Novigrad has recorded its one millionth overnight stay in September. For the first time in the town’s history it achieved one million overnight stays in September in 2012. In 2013 the milestone was hit two weeks earlier in the middle of the month, and this year the magic number was reached 10 days earlier at the start of the month.

In the first 8 months of 2015 163,230 tourists have stayed in Novigrad, realising 1,005,086 overnight stays. Comparing this year’s statistics to last year, there has been slight growth in the number of arrivals, but 11% more overnight stays, says poslovni.hr.

Tourists from Slovenia once again made up the most amount of tourists to Novigrad, followed by Germans, Austrians, Italians, Dutch and Croatians. Situated on the Western Istrian peninsula, Novigrad has a quaint medieval structure and layout, with narrow, winding streets and small shops. It has a population of around just 5,000 people.
