Sailing from Jezera, Murter: General information about the harbour town
With a yacht charter from Jezera, an unforgettable sailing trip can be combined with a city break. The smallest settlement on the island of Murter has only 900 inhabitants and is connected to the mainland via a bridge near Tisno. The picturesque fishing village of Jezera lies in a horseshoe-shaped bay on the island of Murter in the Dalmatian region. While strolling along the waterfront promenade, you can enjoy magnificent views of the marina. A variety of cultural, sporting and entertainment events such as "Jezerski dani mora" or the Big Game Fishing attract tourists and nautical enthusiasts.
With the rains in spring and autumn, small ponds and pools form in Jezera. The name "Jezera", which means "lakes" in Croatian, derives from this natural phenomenon. When the sun becomes stronger in the summer months, the water disappears again.
The history of the fishing village dates back to 1298. Several churches still bear witness to the history and early settlement of the coastal village:
- Parish Church of Mother of God of Health
- Church of St. Roko
- Church of St. Kostancije
- Church of St. Ivan of Trogir
- Church of St. Nikola
