Tourist destination info Biograd

Biograd is a town situated on a small peninsula and shoreline in Northern Dalmatia. It was first mentioned as a Croatia town in the 10th century. Once the town of coronation of Croatian kings, today is a strong and modern tourist center and the seat of the eponymous Riviera. This area, like only a few parts of the Mediterranean, offers excellent marine tourism and sailing possibilities because of its location on the best-indented part of the Croatian Adriatic. A town in the center of the Adriatic is literally a promise land for people who want to enjoy in the crystal clear water and who prefer a dynamic and interesting vacation. Biograd is famous for its cultural and historical heritage that testifies about its turbulent past. The core of this ancient town is located on a small peninsula. Visit the church of St. Roko (votive church from the 16th century, erected in the honor of St. Roko, patron saint of plague victims), St. Stosia church (built on the remains of the 18th century cathedral), Franciscan convent of St. Dujam (founded in the 14th century, contains valuable baroque saintly images, as well as a rich library), St. Ante church (dates back to the 13th century, built in an early romantic style), remains of the Benedictine convent of St. Ivan (1069), remains of the Benedictine convent of St. Toma (1102), parish church of St. Antonija (1850), remains of an ancient aqueduct and countless other sites. Numerous beaches stretch along the entire city, offering an ideal escape if you are looking to get away from the crowd. It is famous for beautiful beaches with crystal clear water, some of which are the Crvena Luka beach (located 3km from the center of Biograd), Dražica beach (a 10minute walk from the center, located near a dense pine tree forest and a promenade), Soline beach (located beneath the eponymous camping site) and Kumenat beach (2km from the center, in an elite block of the same name). Sports and active vacation enthusiasts can practice numerous sports, such as tennis, basketball, sailing, football, handball, beach volleyball, table tennis, bowling, swimming, diving, aqua gun, surfing and many other activities. During summer, numerous festivities and manifestations are organized in Biograd, such as “Long all Croatia eno-eco-gastro-ethno table” (festival of authentic food, drinks, gastronomic delicacies, authentic souvenirs and folklore), “Biograd summer games”, “Dalmatian folk music festival”, “Biograd night” and the “Biograd cultural summer”.
