The royal town of Knin lies in a fairytale karst landscape between the great mountains of Dinara and Velebit and was the capital of Croatian kings throughout the Middle Ages. The turbulent history of Knin and its surroundings is testified by the remains of the Roman camp Burnum and by the archeological park Biskupija that is the largest medieval archeological site in Croatia.
