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.
Town of Murter
Welcome to Murter, that wonderous place ruling over its “overseas colonies” – islands and islets, and, most of all, the pearl of the entire Mediterranean – the Kornati Archipelago. When you say Murter, you are also saying the name of many other islands at the same time. Multiply one island into hundreds and you begin to get the picture of the divine generosity of the landscape in which Nature and the Creator spared no pains. Welcome to Stari Murter (the Old Village), with authentic stone arched alleyways, vernacular and simple houses, stone walls overgrown by climbing plants, and with the modest but inventive features of a valuable architectural ambience.
