The place where Murter Island almost touches the mainland, where only a narrow and tight channel separates it from the shore. This is what gave Tisno its name: (Tisno means tight).
Tisno is a miniature large town. A village with an urban feel, with beautiful stone houses, churches, historical and cultural sights, hidden beaches behind every corner, taverns, pizzerias, restaurants and pastry shops. It has its own style and way of life supported by cultural institutions and social events throughout the year. The central venues for socialising are charming local cafés, each with their own unique story, tasty coffee and a circle of believers. Everything is at your fingertips and you do not have to go any further to experience all the charms of an Adriatic summer atmosphere!
Tisno’s thoroughfare allows you to explore all the small pleasures that life has to offer. Everything is so close that you can return from any excursion in time for lunch, dinner or sleep in your temporary home.
