Village of Primošten

Primošten is a beautiful medieval town located 28 km south from Šibenik and 60 km north from Split. This coastal town truly depicts the Dalmatian harmony of sea, stone and sun with its crytal clear waters, remnants of the old city walls and the church of St Juraj, and plenty of sunshine throught the year. In the near vicinity of Primošten, tourists can also visit two stunning national parks - NP Kornati and NP Krka.

In the past Primošten was situated on the islet close to the mainland. During the Turkish invasions in 1542 the islet was protected by the walls and towers and draw bridge connected it to the mainland. When the Turks retreated, the draw bridge was replaced by the causeway and in 1564 the settlement was named Primošten after the Croatian verb primostiti (to span).
Primošten is well known by its vineyards (of red wine Babić ) that look like stone honey-comb. These vineyards have status of a monument of the human labour and their photograph is in the lobby of the United Nations Building in New York.
