Murter is a village in the north-western part of the island of Murter. It was first called Veliko Selo (from the 13th c.) and Srimac; it got its present name in 1715. Murter stretches toward the cove of Hramina, which houses a marina, and toward the cove of Slanica. The cove of Hramina is well protected from all kinds of winds and provides good shelter for smaller yachts. Hramina Marina has 400 berths in the sea and 250 places on the land. The cove of Slanica features a public beach and the hotel complex Collentum. Economy is based on farming, viticulture, fishing and tourism. Murter is located on the regional road 121.

Situated at the "gate" of the Kornati archipelago (the inhabitants of Murter are owners of a greater part of the lands), Murter is one of the favourite destinations of boaters and those who prefer peaceful vacations. The beginnings of tourism in Murter date back to the 1930s, when the so-called Czech Villa was built in the cove of Slanica, today the rest home of the Trade Union Federation. Murter offers various forms of accommodation (hotel, apartments, holiday houses), nice and quiet beaches, a number of restaurants and inns. Each visitor will gladly visit the Kornati archipelago because excursions are daily organized during the tourist season. Murter has a number of sports facilities (tennis, basketball, football). Water sports are also possible. Various sports competitions are organized in the summer months. A kind of introduction into the sports season is the regatta Murter-Kornati, held in April. Traditional feasts include: St.Roch (Rocco) (16th of August) and the Murter feast of the Birth of Mary (8th of September); the most important cultural event is the Drama Amateurs Festival (held in May).

Murter was first mentioned in the 15th century. The remains of Roman structures, probably the remains of the ancient settlement of Collentum, have been found at the foot of an elevation called Gradina, in the cove of Hramina and elsewhere. - On the cape of Gradina is the local cemetery, where early Croatian graves have been found. At the cemetery is the church of Our Lady in Gradina from the 17th century. The parish church of St.Michael features a Baroque altar, a work by masters Pio and Vicko dall'Acqua and an icon by the Cretan-Venetian school. The parsonage keeps a Gothic-Renaissance processional crucifix and several valuable paintings. - Above the village, on the Vrsina hill, is the church of St.Roch (Rocco) from 1760.
