Across is the administrative center of the island of Ugljan and the place where Jadrolinija boats dock. The municipal center of Preko, with a little more than a thousand inhabitants, got its name from the fact that it is located across from Zadar. It is assumed that the place was inhabited in Roman times, as evidenced by the findings of various ancient buildings. It was first mentioned in the 15th century. Visitors will certainly want to visit the sights that this place has, and these are the church of Our Lady of the Rosary from the 19th century, the church of St. John the Baptist 12-13. century, then on the small island of Galovac Franciscan monastery of St. Paul from the 15th century with a church built in the 16th century. Above the place rise the remains of a fortress from the Middle Ages, the fortress of St. Mihovila was built in the 13th century. The hiking trail leads to this church (265 m) which offers a stunning view of the island and the Zadar archipelago. Preko is recognized in the world, among other things, as a nautical destination, because of its Marina, which is located in the center, and there are many restaurants, shops, markets and everything you need for a pleasant holiday. My favorite location for swimming is definitely Jaz beach, which has a Blue Flag, which is a sign of clear sea.
