The island of Murter is one of many islands of northern Dalmatia, which is the historic region of Croatia and the most concentrated island cluster in the entire Mediterranean Sea (where  almost 40 percent of all Croatian islands are situated). Murter is located in the north-western part of the Šibenik archipelago and the Šibenik-Kninski region. The island is  connected with the mainland by a 6-meter drawbridge, so the island is easily accessible. There are four villages on the island. The villages Murter and Jezera  are the oldest, Tisno and Betina - the younger ones. Most part of the island is covered by century-old olive and fig trees, which are also the most important element of the local crops.

From the very beginning, the residents of Murter were engaged in agriculture, cattle breeding, fishing, cultivation of vineyards. Today they also deal with gastronomy and tourism. Scarce land, which once was the cause of the hardship and poverty of the peasants, now is becomeing a tourist attraction. Empty sandy bays turned into interesting beaches, and Kornati archipelago is considered one of the most beautiful eco-park on Earth.
