The Most Developed Town in Croatia Title Goes to Istrian Gem

CroatiaThe Istrian town of Novigrad in western Croatia is the most developed town in the country, according to an analysis by the Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds…

Besides the town’s obvious natural beauty, Novigrad, as the analysis suggests, invests heavily in the future of its town with a heavily reliance on tourism which generates the greatest income. Unemployment as a result is very low in Novigrad, with the average take-home pay above the Croatian average.

“It is not only tourism which brings in money, jobs, there is also agriculture, fishing, trades and we also have a craft production industry (in Novigrad),” said the town’s Mayor Anteo Milos, adding that around 10 million kuna (1.3 million euro) has been invested in Novigrad’s infrastructure in the last five years, with hotels and camp sites upgraded, as well as beaches, parks, walkways and bike tracks spruced up. Mayor Milos says that one of the keys to success of the small town is the connection it has with both the public and private sector.
