|„Latinsko idro“ (Latin sail) Association
Butina 2, Murter
Tel: +385 (0)22 434 776
Latinsko idro is an association that fosters and promotes the maritime heritage of the Murter-Betina region. But it is in fact neither ship nor sail, neither a regatta nor a tourist fest... Latinsko idro is a reminder of a way of life, of an exceptional area, a spiritual world and its existence. It is a synthesis of all the activities and methods, knowledge and crafts, all the marine skills and trials, of spirit and belief, everything which was interwoven in these magical waters and which originated in ships. They were the pivoting point around which everything revolved. Nothing in this unusual part of the Adriatic was possible without them and their sails. Like in the Book of Genesis: Everything was ship and all were made through it. We are it. Latin sail - that's us.

|Boris Turčinov family farm
Kornatska 10, Murter
Tel: +385(0)98 478 793
| The Boris Turčinov family farm carries on two traditional family activities from Kornati – olives and bees.
"My uncle, Ferdinand Juraga, was the organizer and member of the Murter Beekeepers Cooperative, founded in 1934. Since Murter and Kornati olive growing is rather well known, I will look at honey and its place in my family's tradition.
In short, it can be said the Kornati honey is:
The fact that some 30 years ago you could no longer find honey from Kornati in Murter, prompted me, Boris Turčinov, head of our family farm, to renew the family beekeeping tradition. This sparked interest in other people in Kornati, so that today there are five of us beekeepers. Thanks to this, you can again find this authentic Kornati product in Murter. Personally, I am happy that with my actions and example I have become, in a sense, a bridge between the past and present beekeepers in Kornati. The result of our efforts is that, aside from our personal advantage, we have managed to extend and remove from oblivion a traditional Kornati activity and make a high quality product."
