Novalis Festival focuses on contemporary music repertoire that collaborates with other art forms. Instead of having a fixed set-up each year, Novalis migrates around Croatia’s beautiful landscapes, offering the excellent combination of high quality music with charming Mediterranean surroundings. The three concepts that best represent this festival are: innovation,  instruction and interaction.
