TURANJ, a town and harbour on the coast of the Pasman Channel, 5 km northwest of Biograd na Moru. Chief occupations are farming, livestock breeding and tourism. Situated on the main road (M2, E65). Smaller yachts can berth in the harbour or along a short part of the breakwater.
Populated in the ancient period (Roman graves). The mediaeval settlement was destroyed during the Turkish raids; only the ruins of the fortification (with towers) have survived. The parish church, reconstructed on several occasions, was first mentioned in the 15th century. The lintel of a mediaeval church on the locality Tukljaca mentions the Mogorovic clan; a 15th-century sepulchral slab is in the interior of the church.
