In the 18th ct the Parish church of St Stošija (Anastasia) was built on the remains of Biograd Cathedral. Its bell tower dominates entire Biograd landscape. Near the church, there are ruins of the Basilica of St John Baptist. This used to be Benedictine monastery built by Croatian king Petar Krešimir IV in the 11th century.

Development of tourism began in the 1920s, and the Czech were the first guests. The first hotel was built at the location of today’s Ilirija in 1935. In 2007 Biograd was awarded the Silver Flower of Europe, a prestigious award for landscape and exterior decoration.
