Primosten


Just 28 km distant from Sibenik, in old scripts mentioned as Caputa Cista ("bared head"), Primosten under that name is found first time in documents from 1564. year. By beginning an island, it was protected from Turkish invasion by stone walls with towers, and connection to the land was a mobile bridge. So the name comes from "primostiti" - Croatian for "bridged over").

After Turkish withdrawal bridge was replaced with dike and then Primosten becomes peninsula. Surrounded by 7 islands, Primosten is special gift of nature that leaves no one indifferent.

Stone houses, churches and narrow streets are perfect harmony of past and present time. In spite of heritage and reaches of modern civilisation Primosten has even today kept its atmosphere and all architectural signs of mediaeval Mediterranean fishermen's place.

From sometime a fisherman's place Primosten has developed to significant tourist destination. You can find accommodation in hotels and private apartments; also there are many restaurants, café bars where you can enjoy in healthy Mediterranean food with famous red wine Babic.

Sights of wine stone cells on the nearest hills are so unique sight that its pictures have found place even in building of United Nations in New York as centuries-old evidence that man's arm can engraft even the most roughness landscape.

Campers can find in Primosten theirs spot. Beside many private auto-camps, 3 km from Primosten there is an auto-camp "Adriatic" with modern contents and infrastructure for this kind of holiday.

Every day trips to Sibenik, to background and archipelago of Sibenik with rich cultural and entertaining program will offer everyone something for himself and then put a final impression for the place that lives dynamic during whole season.
