Nin

Encompassed by many neighboring islands, in the northern region of the great peninsula, on which the Croatian coastal town of Zadar is situated, is the former royal city of Nin, which today has about 2,700 inhabitants. Due to its idyllic location in a lagoon, protected by two headlands, the old town of Nin is a popular meeting place in particular. On the romantic streets, you will walk along stone buildings that will tell you of the interesting history of the city. In particular are the sites and monuments from the Roman times - such as the remains of a forum, an amphitheater and a temple – all giving Nin its very special, original charm. In the old town, you will also want to see the old Croatian Church of the Cross, which was built around the year 800. The church is regarded as "the smallest cathedral in the world". The windows and doors of this church, due to their unusual proportions, fascinate and lure visitors to this small, unusually designed church. It was later discovered that this construction had a purpose: to use the different light conditions of the day as well as the year to function as a calendar and a clock.

Due to Nin's location in the lagoon, it is surrounded by numerous extensive, sandy beaches and the sea has a high salt content. This is also the reason for the city's long tradition of salt production. In addition, the mineral-rich mud of Nin attracts numerous visitors - including those with rheumatic complaints.
