the museum is like a time machine
Novigrad is magnificent, a great place to stay, but not better than Makarska in my opinion. If you are a fan of history like me, visit the K.u.K. Marinemuseum. It is like a time machine. My family visited this little museum, which is an excellent private collection. The owner was very friendly, as most most signs did not have english translation. We saw models of old ships, old paintings and photographs, historical uniforms and weapons, and even surgical kits from the early 20th century. The rest of our vacation we spent on the beach. Just stay away from the sea hedgehog!
