Tisno is just one of those places you get to fall in love with the moment you see it. Situated on the crossing between the mainland and the island of Murter this picturesque town holds a (well earned) reputation as one of the most beautiful places in Croatia. Serene shores, pristine sea and fresh air make it an ideal summer vacation spot.

Throughout the ages, Murter was settled, resettled and once again by countless peoples. Starting from Bronze age tribes that roamed our shores, to the mighty Romans and later on Croats, it was always bustling with life. During the middle ages, much like the rest of Croatian coast, Murter was attacked by pirates, Venetian fleets and other invaders.

In the 20th century, Murter became a well known tourist destination, one that attracted visitors who want peace, crystal clear sea and delicious food. All of these are found in abundance across the island, starting from Tisno, Murter and Betina. Local restaurants serve mostly domestic, Dalmatian food, which means lots and lots of olive oil, vine, fish and meat. Accommodation is mainly available in privately owned apartments or rooms in houses of natives. Hotels are scarce, but in the last few years, with the rising popularity of Tisno as a summer party destination, there are plans afoot for the construction of several major tourist hotels, hostels and motels, both in Tisno and on the island itself.

Popularity of Tisno began to grow when it housed the popular „The Garden Festival“, which took place in a small tourist haven near Zadar before it relocated. Organized by a member of UB40, this chillout festival draws in hosts of music lovers from all over the world, but the vast majority is from the UK. Music is mainly electronic, but it is focused on experimental music, unlike Zrće, which hosts mainstream artists. Alongside „The Garden Festival“, Tisno became home for another festival, „SoundWave festival“, which takes place later in the summer. Between the two, and many appearances of artists who hold concerts in Tisno throughout the summer, there is much to see and experience in this fledgling tourist gem.
