Sv. Filip i Jakov
This charming mediterranean village with its beautiful beaches, quality accommodation, picturesque restaurants, sports, recreational and entertainment facilities and rich cultural heritage promises to fulfill your dreams of extraordinary holidays.
Although it has become an attractive tourist resort, you can still feel the spirit of the simple fishermen village as it once was.
The village was called Pristan by the 16th century, and it developed as a port of the Benedictine monastery of Rogovo, the ruins of which can be still found around the church of Sv. Rocco (11c). The Gothic wooden crucifix of unbecoming value from the 14th century was found here, replaced now by a copy, the original is kept in the parrish church of St Philip and Jacob. Later on, the village got it s name upon the church of the Saint Apostoles Philip and Jacob.
This place of traditionally friendly hosts, is located three kilometers northwest of Biograd on the regional road E 65. Surrounded by four national parks (Plitvice, Paklenica, Krka and Kornati) and two nature parks (Telašćica and Vransko jezero), near the old Croatian cities (Biograd, Nin, Zadar and Šibenik), Sveti Filip i Jakov provides excellent opportunity to spend unforgettable moments of your vacation in half- and one-day excursions.
Quiet and clean bays, and numerous islets where you can enjoy the beauty, peace and privacy, surrounded by fragrances of the rich Mediterranean vegetation are calling for one-day boat leisure trips.
The pleasure of sojourn under the patronage of the two apostoles does not change throughout the year, because in addition to picturesque summer months, this place offers the unique experience of staying in other seasons as well.
