Jezera, Croatia - holiday information

Jezera Murter, Croatia – visitor information

Jezera are situated on the south eastern side of the island Murter, around a beautiful deep bay that provides natural shelter from the winds. The bay is further decorated with small hills, on one of them lies the old part of the settlement, while the newer part of Jezera shyly encircles both sides of the bay with charming winding streets, thus making a unified whole.The name comes from the two lakes that the first inhabitants found upon arrival, which were used to irrigate barren land and probably played a key role in the founding of the first settlement. In early 20th century one lake was permanently drained while the other, Lake Lokva, is today full or empty depending on weather conditions. Given that agriculture was not enough to survive in this barren land, the population turned to fishing. They became known as skilled anglers who are best at finding their way in the maze of the Kornati islands. Because of the needs of the fishermen a port was built and slowly began to expand towards the sea, where there is now a marina.An interesting fact is that the residents are owners of numerous islands south-east of the island of Murter. Today, tourism is one of the most developed branches with a large apartment and gastronomic offer. This seemingly hidden place will enchant you with its harmonious construction of a Mediterranean flair and hospitality.
