Drnish is a town in Croatia, located in the interior of Dalmatia, about halfway between Shibenik and Knin. The name Drnish is first mentioned in a treaty of March 8, 1494. However, there are traces of an older medieval fortress built by the Croatian aristocratic family Nelipich on a place called Gradina that dominated this area.The city was conquered by the Ottoman Turks in 1522 due to its strategic position.Many buildings from this time period are still preserved today.During the Baroque period a mosque built by the Turks was turned into a church.
From Shibenik it takes only 20 minutes of easy driving to Drnish.
