The Novi Vinodolski Riviera is a combination of extraordinary historical and cultural heritage and beautiful nature. The oldest Croatian legal document called Vinodolski zakonik (The Vinodol Code) was created in Novi Vinodolski, the center of the Riviera. Here are the origins of the Mažuranić family into which several writers and governors (ban) were born. The chain of Frankopan castles stands here in memory of the glorious past of the region. Tourists are attracted to this area because of its mild climate, numerous beaches and promenades, luscious greenery, dense forests and a refreshing combination of sea and mountain air.
Vinodol Municipality comprises the localities of Drivenik, Tribalj, Grižane and Bribir and is situated in Vinodol, a valley that the Romans called Vallis vinearia. In the vicinity is a fortification built by the Frankopan family, also known as Croatian princes, under whom the area flourished and to whom numerous cultural monuments are attributed.
