Pašman Island – a Miniature Rhapsody

If you want to get to know Dalmatia, all the charms of its islands and depths of the soul of the local folks, to merge with the rhapsody of history and culture which surrounds us, the island of Pašman is the ideal place. Pašman is the second-largest island of the area around Zadar, with Tkon as its main settlement. The town of Tkon is mentioned already in 960 AD under the name of Katun. Even the Byzantine emperor Constantin Porfirogenet mentions Tkon in his work “De Administrando imperio”, written in 1067 AD. We can take you to an environment of pristine nature, salt, stone and aromatic medicinal herbs. There are also drystone walls which are enwoven in the history of the labour of the fishermen and farmers who built them. Enjoy the vistas of the open sea, the Pašman Channel, the islands of Žut and Sit from island peaks. You can also explore numerous forts, castles, religious sites and stone houses and sheepfolds.
