Tisno through history
The ancestors of today’s inhabitants of Tisno occupied the eastern part of Murter Island when they first came, and the village got its name from the ravine they settled on. Tisno is specific for the bridge connecting the island and mainland part of Tisno. In the past, the bridge opened by moving to the side, with a manual drive. The most common means of transport was donkeys who were often afraid of crossing the bridge because the sea was visible between the boards.
