Biograd n/m is located on a peninsula surrounded by marinas and a quay that affords an inimitable view of one of the most picturesque maritime straits: the Pasman Channel and the islands dotted around here. It’s no wonder that the successful history of the industry resulted in such a diverse array of tourist, cultural, sporting and catering facilities.
The neighbourhood of national parks on sea (the Kornati islands), mountain (the Velebit Paklenica), river (the Krka Waterfalls), lakes (the Plitvice Lakes, nature parks (Telascica on Long Island) and Lake of Vrana, and numerous islands and islets in the lovely Pasman canal offer guests that visit Biograd the possibility of excursions to places that are among the most beautiful regions in Croatia.
The splendours of the past are also witnessed by the religious buildings – the Parish Church of St Anastasia (1761) the early-Romanesque Church of St Anthony (13th century), the Church of St Rochus (16th century), while the Basilica of St John (11th century) survived a Venetian sacking in 1125. More about the history can be found in the local museum.
