The early Croatian royal town of Nin is about 15 km away from Zadar. Inhabited for 3000 years, it is an important archaeological locality. There are the remains of the largest ancient temple in the Adriatic, mosaics, a church called the smallest cathedral in the world, a unique romantic period coronation church, the ancient Croatian ship Condura and so on. They all bear witness to the ancient times and the time when the town was the seat of the Bishop and the first capital city of the Croats.

It is located in a shallow lagoon surrounded by fields and salt pans and long sandy beaches, and has the greatest site of medicinal mud in the country. Today, the welcoming hosts, culinary delights, offer at the Zaton Holiday Resort and the private accommodation in Nin and Zaton attract eco and cultural tourists.
