In september in Murter there is the Latinsko Idro, or ‘Latin Sail’ Regatta which was first organized in 1998 to celebrate the feast of St. Michael, the patron saint of the parish of Murter. It represents a celebration of all the local Murter knowledge, crafts, techniques, faiths, individuality and the maritime legacy of this remarkable group of islands.

Authentic stone-vaulted streets, simple dwellings, stone walls covered with ivy, combined with modest but innovative ingenuity have all served to preserve the story of Murter from vanishing into the history books.
