Being the capital town of medieval Croatian kings, Biograd particularly flourished, and in 1102 a coronation of Croatian-Hungarian king Koloman even took place in Biograd. Numerous material evidence of turbulent and rich history of the area around Biograd are stored in a rather interesting Native Museum Biograd.
