Biograd na Moru is one of Croatia's royal cities. Tourism started evolving in the 1930s when the first hotel was built in Biograd. Today it is the biggest nautical center in the central Adriatic, which comes to no surprise if we consider the almost unspoiled nature in and around the town.
Biograd na moru was first mentioned in the 10th century documents, but the town only developed significantly in the Middle Ages.
