Primosten is a town on the Adriatic Coast situated between Sibenik and Trogir. The town is built on a hill and is dominated by the parish church of St George.
Primosten was in the past situated on the islet close to the mainland however during the Turkish invasions in 1542 the islet was protected by the walls and towers and a draw bridge which connected it to the mainland. When the Turks retreated the draw bridge was replaced by the causeway and in 1564 the settlement was named Primosten after the Croatian word ‘primostiti’ meaning to span.
Primosten is most famous for its expansive and scenic vineyards, which are currently under consideration to become a UNESCO world heritage site however it is also known for the traditional donkey race that takes place there every summer.
The largest beach in Primosten is called Raduca and its smaller counterpart Mala Raduca has been voted one of the ten most beautiful beaches in Croatia.
