Tours & Activities in Biograd na Moru
Take a walk with me through the historic Croatian town Biograd na Moru, where some of the Croatian royal heads were crowned.
A town to which history has not been merciful, but still rises from the ashes and today is developing as a pleasant tourist small city, especially for the families with children and those who want to enjoy a small intimate space where everyone can find their little quiet corner.
I will take you briefly into the past, so you can even better understand and enjoy its presence.
One thing also makes this city special! That is what it hides in a City Museum and the story about it.
That is the story of a merchant ship and the cargo found on its wreck.
In 1583, a ship sailed from Venice to Constantinople carrying many valuable items for Sultan Murat III and experienced an accident in the Biograd waters, at a depth of about thirty meters. The wreck of this ship was accidentally found only after 400 years! It is one of the most significant underwater finds in the Adriatic Sea and unique in the world because of the individual objects found there.
The highest attention was attracted by a huge chained chest whose contents surprised everyone!
- The remains of the Benedictine monastery of St. John
- Basilica of St. Anastasia - a monument to the first Croatian king Tomislav
- Homeland Museum - cargo from a sunken ship from the 16th century
