Our travelers rated Nin Guided Bike Tour as "Excellent" on Trip Advisor!
The town Nin is considered to be one of the oldest cities in Croatia.
Nin used to be a Bishops city, with more than 60 known bishops.
Nin beared the title “king” among salt producers for centuries. Nin’s salt is special because of its traditional production and specific taste, which can be attributed to its convenient geographical position, a large number of hours of sunshine and characteristic winds blowing from Velebit mountain, and as well a high percentage of iodine.
