Island of Murter

 

The island of Murter is located in the northwest part of the Šibenik archipelago, separated from the mainland by narrow sea canal at Tisno which is spanned by a 12 meter draw-bridge. Asphalted road (6 km long) connects Murter with Adriatic tourist road, and distance from the city of Šibenik is 29 km.

Located at the entrance to the Kornati Islands (Murter inhabitants own most of the land), Murter is an attractive spot for yachtsmen, and all lovers of quiet relaxation. The beginnings of tourism in Murter date back to the 1930's, when Czech Villa was built in Slanica cove.
