On a small island in the middle of a shallow lagoon is the town of Nin with its old center, connected to the mainland by two stone bridges. The city is located in the middle of a sandy lagoon, 14 km north of the regional center, with excellent connections to Zadar which makes it easily accessible by car, bus, plane, train or boat. Nin had an exciting past, and today a beautiful present. In all his stories, all its beauty and natural richness, one can enjoy and find here the joy, health and spiritual satisfaction that are so much needed today. With a history of three thousand years, which is not recorded only in history books, but visitors literally have the opportunity to walk on it or learn about it from rich museum collections, Nin is the oldest Croatian royal city and the birthplace of the Croatian state. It was founded by the Illyrian tribe Liburni in the 9th century BC and known as Aenon. Today, it is a modern tourist destination that offers all kinds of activities for individuals and families, whether it is excellent sandy beaches and beautiful intimate coves or extremely fun vacation spots of the highest quality.
