Novigrad - Cittanova
Cities, Towns and Hamlets


 

In 452, the Roman town of Colonia Iulia Ĉmona (now Ljubljana, Slovenia) was virtually destroyed by the Huns, led by Attila. Its remaining inhabitants fled the city; some of them made it to the coast of Istria where they founded a "second Emona", Ĉmonia or Emonia, which became the present town of Novigrad (Cittanova) which means "New City".
