Biograd na Moru

The former royal town of Biograd, officially known as Biograd na Moru (white city by the sea), has become a well-known tourist destination on the Croatian Adriatic coast situated between Zadar and Sibenik. With a population of 5,500, this port city particularly excites its guests with its picturesque old town, its modern promenade as well as its two large marinas.

The historic old town of the city lies on a peninsula that is bordered to the north by the Marina of Biograd. Narrow alleyways meander through rustic stone houses and sleepy squares up to the parish church of Sveti Stosija (Saint Anastasia). Dating back to the 17th century this parish church is located in the center of the historic district and is surrounded by the Mediterranean-maritime flair from the adjacent districts of Biograd. Inside, you can visit the five ancient altars as well as tombs. The exhibits from the 16th century in the city's museum tell, among other things, of the history of the town of Biograd; a history telling of its importance as a trading town on the coast of Croatia.

 

Marina and Nautical Activities as the Main Attractions

Visitors are attracted to this city, in generally, because of the Marina, which consists basically of two marinas. The smaller marina "Sangulin" is located to the south of the historic center and the larger, the "Marina Kornati", shares a border to the northern portion of the old town. The Marina of Biograd lies mostly in a sheltered bay and has a total of 950 berths. As an ideal springboard for sailing to and making boat trips to the nearby islands of Pasman, Kornati and Dugi Otok, this port primarily attracts boat and yacht owners. In addition, there are many athletic people who meet here for the great water sport opportunities: such as diving, water-skiing, or surfing. There is a ferry to Tkon located on the opposite lying island of Pasman. Here you can discover the unspoilt, beautiful neighboring island which, inter alia, has many idyllic sandy

The hustle and bustle in the harbor and on the well-developed waterfront promenade attract not only boaters, but is one of the most popular venues in the city. During the day, guests take a stroll and tourists sit in the cafés or restaurants and enjoy regional specialties. You should definitely try the savory grilled seafood, fish or meat dishes. Along the coast, Biograd is home to some of the most lively programs in the summer season with its many festivals, concerts and events which are all especially colorful and vibrant. Both the Folklore Festival "Biogradska festa" as well as the music event "Biograd Night" attract numerous visitors and locals to the promenade. Boaters make their own way to Biograd to visit the regularly organized regatta and the big boat show.

Biograd is a place that has adapted well to tourism, displayed in its impressively well-equipped beaches of the city. Here, there are not only many recreational activities, but also lifeguards, barrier-free access, children's games, sanitary facilities and changing rooms.
