There are four Novigrads in Croatia. This one is the oldest one, but no longer the most famous or easy to find. To avoid any confusion, the coordinates are:
The Novigrad you are looking for is Novigrad Dalmatia, with the postal code 23312. It is 30 km away from the region's capital, Zadar, and about the same distance to the closest airport (ZAD - Zadar Airport).
It is recommended to have a car with you in order to take full advantage of the region's beauty. However Novigrad can also be reached by plane, bus or bicycle.
When arriving by car via the A1 highway, take Exit 16 - Posedarje. Turn right onto road D106 and after 1 km turn right again onto the E8, direction Zadar. Only 1 km later turn left onto Stari Put. Novigrad is signposted at this junction. Simply follow the road for the next 10 km and you will reach Novigrad.
In case you miss Exit 16, you can take the next one, Exit 17 - Zadar 1. Turn right onto the E8 and after 3.5 km you willl reach the same signposted junction, but this time you will instead turn right.
Distances from Novigrad to the main cities:
Zadar 30 km
Zagreb 270 km
Split 160 km
Rijeka 230 km
Zadar Airport is served by the following airlines: Lufthansa, Germanwings, Ryanair, and Croatia Airlines. For more flying options, especially during the winter period, the airports in Zagreb and Split provide additional destinations.
Car rentals are available at any of these airports.
