Novigrad (Italian: Cittanova or Cittanova d'Istria) is a town and a municipality in Istria, Croatia. It is also known as Novigrad Istarski to distinguish it from three other Croatian towns of the same name. Novigrad is set on a small peninsula on the western coast of Istria, two kilometres north of the mouth of the river Mirna. The area covered by the municipality extends from the village of Dajla in the north to the mouth of the River Mirna in the south.
There was an ancient city in the broad area of what is now Novigrad (Aemona). In the 5th-6th centuries it was called Neapolis (Greek Νεαπολις). From the early Middle Ages and right up until 1828 it was the seat of the Bishopric, from 1270 it was under the rule of the Venetian Republic until its fall in the late 18th century, and it suffered a good deal of Turks in 1687. The Old city is situated on a peninsula. The triple-naved basilica of St. Pelagius dates from the 8th century, and the present church was built on the foundantions of the old basilica in the 15th and 16th centuries. Beneath the presbytery there is a late Romanesque crypt. In the sacristy of the present parish church, the former basiilica, 15th century antiphonaries are kept with their simple and beautiful initials.
Novigrad has retained its medieval structure and layout, with narrow, winding streets and small shops. The fortifications belong to the medieval era: the town wall still stands with its battlements and tow round towers. There are examples of secular architecture from the time of the Venetian empire, such as the town loggia and several houses built in Venetian Gothic style.

A well composed picture with a beautiful sunset and its reflection in the water of this small port.
Also very nice are the many masts with a coloured sky as background.
Best regards, Paul

The boats and its masts have a good aesthetic role in this capture, in which the Sun and its reflections on the calm waters of the marina creates an atmosphere really attractive and full of calmness.
You choose a really good framing, in a beautiful composition.
Best regards, my friend,

Novigrad je, vsaj zame, eno izmed najlepših istrskih mest. Ampak ne med turistično sezono, temveč spomladi oz. zgodaj poleti in jeseni, ko se množice turistov umaknejo in mesto lahko ponovno zadiha.
Tole je pa slikano iz novega dela marine, če se ne motim. Lep pogled na zahajajoče sonce, na spokojno morje in na nebo, ki se pripravlja k nočnem počitku. Tople in prijetne barve kar vabijo človeka, da si spočije oči na tvoji fotki. Ja, lepo narejeno...
Lep večer še naprej,

Hello Vojko, this is a pleasant and serene sunset in this beautiful harbor of the village. You have a perfect reflection of the sun mirrored in the water. I like the sail boats with their presence in the harbor. Very nicely done. Regards Roger

beaucoup de romantisme dans ces couleurs chaudes et ces lumičres trčs douces. Un moment privilégié de la journée bien choisi. Il ya a une petite nuance bleutée parasite dans les blancs, mais cela ne gâche rien ŕ la beauté du paysage tranquille.
My best regards.

Dobar da, kod nas i dalje kisa i mnogo hladno.
Odlican trenutak i motiv ...
Lep pogled preko mola i reflexa u vodi na oblake i sunce koje polako odlazi sa horizonta, odlican rad, cestitam vam, bravo.
Svidja mi se tekst sa kojim ste nas upoznali sa gradom i njegovom istorijom.
Prijatan uspesan dan sa lepim vremenom, srecno, zeli vam Paja.

A lovely sunset over a beautiful setting. I love boats and this photograph certainly appeals to me very much.
There is a nice composition with a diagonal leading line (the floating pontoon) taking us further into the scene.
