The Old Croatian Boat Condura Croatica
The boats called Condura Croatica were found at the entrance to the port of Nin in 1966. They sailed during the 11th and 12th century, and were taken out of the sea in 1974 when the desalination, conservation and restoration began in Zadar. It is supposed that these very boats were mentioned by the Emperor Constantin Porfirogenet when he spoke about the old Croatian navy. Interestingly, these are the smallest but the deadliest war ships in world history. They were 8 m long and narrow, with the ribs and panelling of the boat’s starboard connected with wooden and iron nails. Today, the discovered Condura Croatica is kept in the Museum of Nin Antiquities in a special pavilion, and a replica is exhibited in the sea near the lower city bridge.
