Venice came to power in late 13th century and remained here until the end of the 18th century. Besides progress, the arrival
of Venice also brought the conflict with Genoa, whose soldiers heavily destroyed the town in the 14th century, while in the
late 17th century the city was attacked by the Turkish army. The arrival of Napoleon and his troops was recorded at the beginning
of the 19th century. They were soon replaced by the Habsburgs, who remained here until the early 20th century. Then again
the territory changed rulers and fell under Italy. With the end of the Second World War, Novigrad became part of Yugoslavia.
Up to the Sixties its population was engaged in fishing, agriculture and industry,when it turned to a new economic branch
–tourism, which today is the most important activity. In 1991, Novigrad was annexed to the independent Republic of Croatia.
