Destinations

Tourist guide through the locations on the island Murter: Murter, Betina, Tisno, Jezera and through the Kornati islands: Kornat, Žut, Sit.

The Island Murter belongs to the North Dalmatian group of islands, which contains almost 40 % of all Croatian islands and is the most dense archipelago in both the Adriatic and the Mediterranean. Island Murter is located in the northwest of both the Šibenik archipelago, as well as the Šibenik county.

Murter is the largest and the oldest town on the island of Murter. It is ofter referred to as the "capital" of Kornati, since its  residents own almost all of the Kornati and the neighbouring  islands.

Tisno is the newest town on the island of Murter. It developed in the place where the island almost reaches land and was therefore named after this narrow strait. The town of Tisno was mentioned in 1474 for the first time, but it was mostly settled during the Cyprus and Cretan wars – the wars between Venetians and the Ottoman Empire.

Thanks to its location and well- kept architecture, Betina is considered to be one of the most beautiful places in the Adriatic.
The central historical part of Betina was built on the eastern slopes of Cape Artić, located on the northern  gate to the Murter passage.

Jezera (the Lakes) is the smallest town on the island of Murter. It was named after large pools of water which flow into the valley during autumn and wintertime and look like real lakes. Although these "lakes" usually  disappear with the first rays of spring sun, it  is this natural phenomenon that the region has always been famous for.

Kornati are the most dense group of islands in the whole of the Mediterranean. It is located between the islands of Žirje, Dugi otok and Pašman. The arcipelago is divided into two groups: Lower Kornati consisting of Kornat and surrounding islands and Upper Kornati made of SitŽut and surrounding islands. Because of the extraordinary beauty of landscape, the abundance of natural bays and the rich sea flora and fauna, out of 152 of the Kornati islands89 of them were declared a national park in 1980.
