About Kukljica

A picturesque village that used to organize its life around fishing and related activities is today a perfect place for a peaceful repose – whether it’s walking, cycling or just enjoying the sunny beaches.

The Island Ugljan, on which Kukljica can be found, is connected to Pasman,  by a bridge crossing a narrow strait called Zdrelac. Zdrelac is also the setting of a traditional procession that takes place in early August, celebrating the local legend according to which there was a day filled with snow almost five hundred years ago. The procession takes the boats to the votive church named ‘Our Lady of Snow’ and it is the perfect opportunity to discover the unspoiled nature in its surrounding. Kukljica also features a large number of old town squares known as “dvors”.
