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...
From an exciting past to a lovely present
On a small island in the middle of a shallow lagoon the small town of Nin can be found with its old centre, connected to the mainland by two stone bridges. Nin has had an exciting past and today a lovely present. All its stories, all its beauty and natural wealth are here to be enjoyed and to find joy, health and spiritual satisfaction which are so much needed today.
