Jezera is an old fishing village on the island of Murter, located just three miles from the mainland, where the bridge in Tisno connects it with the Adriatic tourist road. The village is named after the small lakes. First of all, Jezera means lakes in English. This is an interesting story, as these lakes occur during the fall and winter, due to rains that pour in many karst depressions. However, with the first rays of sun in spring the lakes disappear.
A holiday in Jezera is possible throughout the year. However, at springtime Dalmatia is particularly beautiful. So if you would like to witness the disappearance of lakes, you might consider visiting it when the spring starts so make sure you book a room in Jezera around that time. It is not known when the village was established, but it is assumed that the well-protected bays, where the Jezera is located, attracted the first inhabitants of the early 13th century.
Traces of history can be seen throughout the island of Murter, especially in old churches and houses. When you start looking for your accommodation in Jezera you might find some old stone houses to rent. That would be a unique experience, if you are an adventurous type of person. People usually find their accommodation in one of the apartments in Jezera available to rent. Holiday villas in Jezera can be found also, but there is a small number of these as the place nurtures the old Mediterranean style. People here are not keen on luxury. They grow vegetables in their backyards, they go fishing every day and they make wine. During the day, when they are not working in their gardens, they like to sit around the house or outside if the weather is nice and talk to each other. They love to gossip!
