    The Island of Galešnjak is known for its heart shape, but there are more reasons to fall in love with it.

It instantly became a topic on TV channels such as CNN and BBC. The whole world found out about Galešnjak, the island with the most perfect heart shape in the world. You can plan your romantic trip also but note that it does not have any kind of man-made structures or accommodation facilities. In our opinion, that makes it even more romantic, don't you think?

    The sea around Biograd is a desirable destination for both diving experts and those taking their first steps in the exploration of marine depths!

    You can admire the sea from your car, on the beach, on photographs, while dining… But it is a special experience to see it from another perspective – deep within! Many experienced divers and scuba enthusiasts find this area very attractive, as it is characterized by the extremely diverse seabed of various natural phenomena. The outer sides of many surrounding islands have depths of over 50 m and therefore, provide the perfect conditions for exploration of beautiful coral reefs, interesting hollow caves and teeming marine life. The coastal and insular flora and fauna around Biograd are rich and colourful. High sea clarity is ideal for underwater photo safaris, whereas the indented coast and lovely coves offer a nice shelter from occasional stronger winds and subsequent rising waves. Dig deep and swim deep and see (sea) it for yourself!

    Maškovića Han

    Summer house goals

    Learn the story of the Mašković summer house that has been transformed into a boutique hotel!

    Jusuf Mašković, originally from Vrana, a high dignitary on the Sultan's court and a supreme admiral of the Turkish fleet, wanted to build his luxurious and modern summer house Han in eastern style for his return from Constantinople to his homeland. It started in 1644 and over 500 workers worked on it every day. But Mašković never got to see it. A year later, along with 60,000 soldiers, he conquered Crete. The nobility he showed to the Venetian soldiers provoked the sultan who summoned him to the court where Mašković was executed. His death changed everything, even the Han, which was built more modestly. Today you can admire it in its full richness since it has been turned into a boutique hotel.
