The poet´s bench
Everyone has their own bench somewhere-a special place where everything seems more beautiful, and where one thinks differently dreaming one's dreams. Petar Zoranić must have had such place in Nin dreaming about his homeland's freedom and love, new landscapes and the national language. It is not by chance that on the 500th anniversary of the birth of the famous writer, an initiative was started which is still ongoing, for donatons towards benches with dedicated inscriptions. Why would you not have one with a personal dedication in Zoranić's Nin, the first seat of Croats in the oldest Croatian royal town which another Croatian poet called the „Croatian Bethleham“?
By arrangement with the Tourist Board of Nin, the bench and the engraved plate can be bought independently or the host will do it for you. Along with the payment it is sufficient to arrange the inscription and this special bench will be waiting for you or those you dedicate it to.
This will encourage you to return to the place which belongs to everyone but is dedicated only to you...it is your bench, a place where you will after many years-recognise the beauty of the landscape and the strong hearts that connect you to people you like, places we gladly revisit and with each new visit we belong to more and more. Everyone somewhere has their place and their bench...
QUEEN'S BEACH IN NIN
In Nin large areas of sandy beaches are spreading up to 8 kilometres. Certainly the most beautiful and best known is the Queen's Beach. The Legend has it that when Croatian king Tomislav would come to Nin on vacation, the Queen would spend most of the time on the beach near the medicinal mud site. One day the king joined her and said: „When we come to Nin this place will be only yours, this is heaven on earth and this is your beach."
