The ancient port



Remains say: Nin as far back as the 9th century BC was a strong maritime and trading centre and an important port on the eastern coast of the Adriatic. It was founded by the Illyrian tribe of Liburnians, under the name of Aenona which had an important trading role. The ancient port of old Nin is one of the largest and according to findings the richest port area from that period on the eastern Adriatic. During low tide on the headland called Kremenjača near the tourist settlement of Zaton Holiday Resort the remains of the breakwater and ancient walls from the 1st century BC can be seen.

Church of st. Nicholas

Did you know that a widely known symbol of Nin is the Romanesque church of St. Nicholas from 11th/12th century, built on a hummock and also used as the coronation church? National folk legend has it that in Nin seven kings were crowned, and during the coronation, accompanied by a magnificent escort, the crowned ruler would ride to the Church of St. Nicholas where he was presented to the people. From that hummock, as a sign of his royal power, he would strike a sword to all four cardinal points.
