Nin – Healing Mud
The town of Nin near Zadar, will in addition to its numerous cultural and historical sites, soon be able to offer health tourism to guests. The project 'Nin Mud' worth 60 million euros is specifically designed in a lagoon situated near the town of Nin and forming the largest mud site in Europe. The project envisages the tourist-recreational and health facilities and among other things, the construction of a four-star hotel, apartment resort, sports and recreational grounds with a golf course, wellness center, spa and a conference center. A special system of control and protection during construction will be implemented because only during the first stage of the cascade construction of buildings about 300,000 cubic meters of sand will have to be removed. Nin healing mud has been used since Roman times for the treatment of various rheumatic, skin and spine diseases, and has been used by numerous patients from all Croatian regions under the expert medical supervision of the physicians of Zadar hospital. The data shows more than 15 000 patients in the last ten years. With the realization of the aforementioned project, guests from abroad will also be able to benefit from the properties of Nin healing mud.

Located 14 km from Zadar, Nin has developed on a small island or sandbar about 500 feet long and up to 4 meters in height above the sea level. Convenient location and fertile surrounding area has enabled it to become an urban, cultural and political center in the ancient past. Today's settlement on the island has developed in the early Iron Age, therefore, roughly 3000 years ago. It was established by the tribe Liburna. Earlier settlement which dates from the early Stone Age was located outside the island, and can be dated to around 5000 years before Christ through the excavation findings.

The name Nin comes from Liburnian (and later Roman) name Aenona, which could be of much older origin, since the first mention of this settlement occurs in Greek writers, about 4 centuries before Christ.

Nin is the oldest Croatian royal city and the cradle of Croatian culture. Exceptionally well-preserved monuments, particularly the well-known Early Croatian churches from the 9th and 12th century are unique in Croatia and in the wider Mediterranean region. Upon arrival in Nin every visitor will notice one of its symbols - the famous church of St. Nicholas from the 12th century.
