Tisno is situated at the narrowest part of the Murter Channel (30 m wide). The new part of the settlement was built on the mainland, and the historic core is located on the north-east side of the island of Murter. The two parts of the settlement are connected with a movable bridge, the only connection of the island of Murter with the mainland in general.

It was mentioned for the first time in the 15th century under the name Tisno (narrow), due to the narrow channel separating the island from the mainland. The settlement was founded in the times of Turkish invasions to this region. The bridge was built at the beginning of the 18th century, and another, movable bridge was set in the 19th century.

Among the sacral monuments a special place belongs to the outstanding Church of Our Lady of Caravaggio – a votive church of a family of Italian settlers (the family Gelpi), built at the beginning of the 18th century and completed in the 19th century. Thousands of pilgrims from the whole Dalmatia visit the Church on 26th May, the day of the appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Three kilometres from Tisno towards the Adriatic Coastal Road (Jadranska Magistrala) there is the historical site of Ivinj with the Romanesque Church of St. Martin. The church was built on the foundations of an old Christian basilica, while the remnants of a Roman villa rustica were excavated in the vicinity.

Tisno is a beautiful place ideal for vacations, with about 3.300 accommodation units offered in the hotel "Borovnik", the holiday resort "Hostin", the campsite "Jazina", camps, private rooms and apartments, where everybody can find something for himself.There are also numerous berths in the marina.
