PASMAN, an island in the Zadar archipelago southeast of the island of Ugljan, separated from it by a narrow strait called Zdrelac.
The steep western coast is indented with numerous coves, well protected from the bora (especially in the south-eastern part). Larger coves include Polaca, Taline, Triluke, Landin, Soline and Kablin. All places on the island are situated along the less indented eastern coast: Tkon, Kraj, Pasman, Mrljane, Nevidane, Dobropoljana, Banj and Zdrelac. Main occupations are farming, growing of vines, olives, fruit and vegetables, livestock breeding, fishing and tourism.
The island has been populated since the prehistoric times (Illyrian hill-fort, Roman finds - Pasman, Banj). Along the cove of Sveti Ante (St. Anthony) on the south-western coast is a small, pre-Romanesque one-nave church. From 1050 the island was owned by the Biograd diocese and from 1126 by the Zadar archdiocese. It was populated by the refugees who fled from the Turks.
