Overnights in Biograd Na Moru, Croatia

After some hours of sightseeing in Zagreb, the capital and largest city of the Republic of Croatia, our bus headed to our hotel in Biograd na Moru, where we had two overnight stays. It took us over 4 hours to Biograd na Moru from Zagreb. Bus stops and breaks sometimes made the travels a lit slower but I am thankful that we arrived to the destination safely.

After putting my  luggage in  my room and did some freshen up, I went down to the dining hall of the hotel. After taking our dinner, I decided to do a night sightseeing in Biograd. I guess, I am really a brave person walking alone on the narrow dark streets in Biograd. Thanks God for making me always safe in my travels.

The town’s native Croat name fully translates as “the white town on the sea”. The name Biograd is a compound literally meaning “white city”, and etymologically corresponding to several other toponyms spread throughout the Slavdom: Beograd, Belgorod, Białogard etc. The name was first mentioned in the 10th century as a town founded by the Croats. It was one of the most important cities, being the capital of most Croatian regnants such as Stephen Držislav and Peter Krešimir IV and as well as an important religious place.
