The picturesque town is located both on the mainland peninsula and on the island of Murter. A small draw-bridge connects the two and opens up twice a day to let the boats and sails go through.

Tisno is surrounded by many coves and beaches on all four sides with lots of greenery in between. 

Tisno is named after the narrow passage that separates the island of Murter from the mainland. A town with rich heritage displayed in its Italianate buildings, Tisno is a pleasant option if you just want to get away from the madness of The Garden nearby.

The town centre is flanked by a wide seafront promenade busy with holiday makers all summer. The centre stands on the island side, separated from the mainland by a bridge originally built in the 18th century and replaced with a mechanical one in 1968.

Local sightseeing mainly centres on churches. The oldest is the parish Church of St Spirit, originally built in 1548 and renovated in baroque style in 1640. Its beautiful tower was added in 1680. Within, the statue of the Madonna with Child is coated with silver and gold.

Those in search for a partying can visit the Garden Music Festival that takes place each summer in one of the coves near the town.
