Murter Island | Croatia

Murter is an island in the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea. The island is only 6 meters away from land and is connected to the mainland by a mobile bascule-bridge. 

Most of the island is covered with age - old olive trees and fig-trees, which are the main traditional crops grown by the natives. The island is surrounded on most parts by the Kornati islands.

Lighthouse Grebeni stands on a rugged rock populated only by yellow-legged gulls. The island is located a four-kilometre boat ride from Dubrovnik's Old Harbour. The stamp is part of a set of four stamps about Croatian lighthouses (2015).

One day I would like to travel to this area. My cousin goes there often since she lives in Graz, Austria
