Location of Primosten
Dalmatia is considered to be the most beautiful region of Croatia. Primosten is located in the middle of this region on an artificial peninsula between Sibenik and Trogir. Previously it used to be an island, but eventually, it got connected to the mainland, that is how its current view was established. It is a rarely inhabited area, therefore nature is almost untouched here.
History of Primosten
The town’s name already hides its natural heritage: Pri most means the bridge. The area has been inhabited since the 7th century before Christ and was considered to be an important trade centre.

The number of inhabitants is less than 2, 000 these days and beyond tourism, they live from grape production, fishing, and olive production. It is a charming and a little rustic fishermen’s village, where locals all know each other.
