Old town

Pirovac (www.pirovac.hr) is located 48 km far from Zadar and 23 km far from Šibenik. It was founded by the Šibenik diocese in 1298 as Zlosela. The village bears its present name from 1930. 

The first known owner of the settlement was a Venetian nobleman, Petar Draganić. He ordered the building of the town wall in 1505 to protect the village from the Turkish attacks. Some parts of this wall survived until today, however the Turkish invaded Pirovac twice and the residents were forced to escape to the near Murter island.

The fishing village started to develop following the World War I. Today Pirovac is a popular resort with a tiny old town and many private apartments.
