Tisno, Croatia - holiday information

Tisno Murter, Croatia – visitor information

Tisno is the youngest settlement on the island of Murter, and was built on the spot where the island is closest to the mainland. This small urban town extends on both sides of the bridged Murter channel. It has a long local promenade, beautiful stone houses, churches and a handful of local historical and cultural landmarks all mixed with restaurants, taverns, cafes, pizzerias and patisseries making it a cheerful sitting and relaxation area. Tisno was once the main administrative center of the island and spearheaded in crafts and trade. For the same reasons, the settlement was first to turn to tourism, and the first to offer hotel and board services during the period between the two world wars. Tisno is also an important religious center in the region, and among the most important events of the votive pilgrimage to Our Lady of Caravaggio, which brings together many of the faithful from the surrounding regions. Tisno is definitely a place that has a unique lifestyle that wins you over after a few days spent in it. Beautiful little beaches can be found just after five minutes of walking  out of the settlement.  Garden Festival, which has been taking place near Tisno from 2012, attracts fans of an electronic sound, especially young people who enjoy swimming and dancing to the sounds of electronic music during day and night.
