EXCURSION IN THE CITY OF NIN (10.00 a.m.- 14.00 p.m.)

Price: 50 HRK for person

Once the first Croatian royal town and an important cultural centre, as evidenced by the many monuments of the early-Croatian architecture from eighth and ninth centuries, as the church of saint Cross - popularly known as the smallest cathedral in the world. In addition, in the centre of the city, on the former Roman forum, rises the monumental remains of a Roman temple which was the largest temple in the Roman province of Dalmatia.

In the Museum of Nin Antiquities special pavilion was built (room 5) to display the results of the many years of underwater excavations in the region of Nin and Zaton, where the Roman harbour of Aenona was located. The room is dominated by the two early Croatian ships (Condura Croatica) discovered at the entrance to the Nin harbour. The larger boat was conserved and entirely reconstructed, while the other was conserved and presented in the condition in which it was preserved. Radiocarbon analysis (C14) of wood samples has dated the boats to the second half of the 11th century. A partly reconstructed serilia, the vessel used by the prehistoric Liburni and Histri, is also displayed with these boats. The name serilia indicated that they were "sewn" or held together by ligatures in the form of linen and broom cords. The last case displays numerous remains of ship equipment, fishing tackle, pottery and glass vessels, coins, jewellery, and other material that was discarded or fell by chance into the silt bottom of the Roman harbour at Zaton.

The price of excursion includes expert guidance through the museum and city guidance.

 

EXCURSION IN THE CITY OF BIOGRAD n/m (10.00 a.m. - 14.00 p.m.)

Price: 70 HRK for person

Biograd on the sea is a royal Croatian city first mentioned in the mid 10th century, while in the 11th century it was the centre of the Croatian kings and bishops. The city flourished as the seat of Croatian rule of the Middle Ages, and in 1102 the Croatian-Hungarian king Colomanus was crowned here. Once a crown city of Croatian kings, Biograd on the sea is today a well-known tourist and nautical centre in the very centre of the Adriatic coast.

Many material proofs of the rich and tumultuous past of this Biograd region have been stored in the interesting Homeland museum. Its Cargo from the 16th Century Sunken Ship collection preserves more than 10,000 objects taken from the sunken Venetian ship from the 16th century. The ship overloaded with various expensive goods for trade in the Mediterranean ports sunk in 1583, couple of nautical miles distance from Biograd. It was accidentally discovered in 1967 by fishermen. The items from the ship can be divided into two groups: ship equipment and inventory (anchors, canons, copper and tin cooking utensils from the ship’s kitchen and other) and expensive trading goods (luxurious glass items, candlesticks, an iron casket with textile items - silk damask, shirts and woollen hats, thimbles, sewing needles, pins, razors, glass, scissors...).

Most of the cargo, according to weight and number, consisted of raw material and semi-manufactured products: brass items, tin bars, balls of cinnabar…

The price of excursion includes expert guidance through the museum and city guidance.
