Novi Vinodolski – The Islet San Marino Enriches its Offer
The well known tourist destination of Kvarner, Novi Vinodolski, will enter the season with another attractive tourist offer this year. The plan is to give the island of San Marino a makeover. The island is located only 200 meters from the central town beach of Novi Vinodolski. It is an island which is, due to its attractive appearance, a very common theme of tourism promotional material. The island had so far lacked in content and has mainly served as a motif for photographers and used by sun bathers but the project entitled ‘The eight winds of the island of St. Marin’ envisages the reconstruction of the existing small Gothic church, dedicated to St. Marin, after whom the island was named as well as the fishermen's huts which are currently in ruins. Also planned is the construction of two moors for smaller boats, access paths and walkways, eight benches placed in the direction of the eight winds and an area for events.

Novi Vinodolski has evolved from the old Frakopan fort Novigrad. Thanks to the evergreen vegetation and mild Mediterranean climate, clean water and air, it became a pioneer of seaside tourism in 1878, following Opatija. The physiognomy of the town is characterized by coastal architecture of white facades and red roofs, which rise in the old town core from the sea level up to the church and tower on the hill. The soul of the city are the remains of cultural heritage: the walls of a Roman fort "Lopsica", the remains of the Paulist friars' monastery, the Frankopan castle with a tower, the cathedral, the church of Holly Trinity and the mentioned church of St. Marin on the island of the same name, the Museum and Gallery, the core of the old city, as well as the authentic folklore of this city.
