Details about Primošten
History tells us that this small town firstly was situated on the islet, surrounded and protected by the walls and connected to the mainland with drawbridge. In mid-16th century drawbridge was replaced with causeway and in 1564 the settlement was named ”Primosten”; on croatian dalmatian dialect verb ”primostiti” means ”to span”.

You will like Primosten: typical narrow streets in the old town core that lead you to the parish church of St. George located on the hill, almost intoxicating scent of the sea, Mediterranean vegetation and Dalmatian dishes that permeate between stone houses, friendly locals . . . when you enter the old town you will feel the spirit of the past, and no, it is not just a phrase.

Famous Primosten vineyards will give you the best testify about the character of the people of this town and region. Visiting these vineyards located in the rocks around Primosten and tasting the famous local red wine called ”Babich” (produced from the autochthonous wine sort) is a must!

During your stay in Primosten be sure to visit one of the taverns (”konoba”) and taste something from the large selection of home-made dishes; cheese in olive oil, lamb dishes, traditional fish dishes (spiny lobster is a trade mark of Primosten) as well as homemade ham (prosciuto – ”pršut”).
