 Basic information about Tisno

 

Tisno, island MurterTisno developed in the place where the island almost reaches land and was therefore named after this narrow strait (6 m). It is situated 28 km west of Šibenik. The centre of the old part is located on the island, south-east from the bascule bridge.

 

The new part was built on a mainland. Unlike most other Dalmatian towns and villages, Tisno is very rich in green vegetation, it has got unusually spacious squares and a long promenade, perfect for a refreshing summer stroll.

Accommodation is provided in private apartments and pensions, in Borovnik hotel, situated in a centre and in Jazina camp, situated 1 kilometer from the town.

The town of Tisno was mentioned in 1474 for the first time, but during French reign (1806-1813) it was the largest town on the island and therefore the center of the county. In the early 18th century, when there was no danger of Turkish attacks any more, a bridge was built across the strait and the town started to spread on land as well.
