Višnjan Observatory

Museums Novigrad

A 15 minute drive from Novigrad and famous for discovering more than 1,400 minor planets over the last decade, Višnjan is one of the world’s most prolific astronomical discovery sites. In 2009 the Višnjan team opened a brand-new observatory in the nearby village of Tican, housing a one-metre telescope. The Višnjan Observatory is also actively involved in educational projects, run by students and volunteers, organising workshops and seminars.
