Biograd na Moru
Biograd na Moru, the small resort of Biograd (just under 6.000 souls) is a wonderful holiday destination in lovely Croatia. Holidays in Biograd centre around the balmy Mediterranean climate, the many beaches that stretch all along the town's perimetre and the rich marine tourism.
Biograd is situated on the Adriatic coast (just south of Zadar) and the Pasman channel is the gateway to many islands (Planec, Pasman, St. Catherine and many more) where day trips are highly recommended to experience a sense of peace and complete relaxation. The area has ancient villages, dense pine forests, swamp birds on freshwater waterways, national parks with waterfalls and native flora and fauna and, of course, beaches. If you enjoy privacy, you can often have a beach all to yourself!
A holiday in Biograd is like the original seaside town on one of the best indented parts of the Croatian coastline. Many sports and leisure activities are on offer and Biograd holidays definitely suit lovers of the outdoors. Sailing enthusiasts will adore the crystal waters and as there are so many nearby islands, a safe harbour or local watering hole is never too far away.
As the former capital of the medieval Croatian Kingdom, the sense of history is palpable in Biograd and the feel of cultural and historical heritage is strong. Churches dating from the 14th (St Roko) and 16th (St Stosia) century and some very picturesque local stone Dalmatian houses are all worth seeing. During high season, traditional festivals attract many visitors to the area. The Dalmatian Folk Music Festival, Carnival on the island of Pag and Biograd Cultural Summer are popular and showcase the area perfectly.
Your holiday in Biograd will always involve great local restaurants, atmospheric cafes for people watching, beaches to swim and sail, traditional music and lots of historical reference. So, you certainly won't have time to be bored in Biograd!
