Jezera (the Lakes) is the smallest town on the island of Murter. It was named after large pools of water which flow into the valley during autumn and wintertime and look like real lakes. Although these "lakes" usually disappear with the first rays of spring sun, it is this natural phenomenon that the region has always been famous for.
The first settlers came here in 1298. It is said they had been attracted by a well-hidden friendly bay in the north-east of the island. There are many churches and religious monuments here, mostly from the 17th and the 18th century. The church of Our Lady of the Health (Gospe od zdravlja), built in 1720. is probably the most beautiful one.
It was probably due to mean soil that residents of Jezera became such excellent fishermen and seamen. Even today the town still looks like a typical Dalmatian fishing village, although it has turned into one of the largest fishing centres in Central Dalmatia.
In case you would like to have fresh fish, calamari, shrimps or mussels - Jezera is the right place for you! Coming to town quay at dusk and buying sea food directly from fishermen, who just came back from sea, will be an unforgettable experience!
