Location of Sukosan

Sukosan lies 11 km southeastward from Zara in the northern part of Dalmatia. It’s next to Velebit canal in the spacious Gulf of Zlatna Luka. The town has a direct connection to motorway A1 through highway 424. Thus, it’s easily accessible by car.

History of Sukosan

Sukosan and its vicinity were already inhabited in ancient times. Archaeological findings prove that Romans lived here. After the Croat settlement, the area belonged to Sigarda region, then to the city of Zára. The first written memory is a contract for selling land from 1289. Sukosan got its name after the patron saint of its church, Saint Cassianus. In the 12th century it was under the control of the Hungarian Kingdom, then Venetian domination. Due to the Turkish conquest the town was repeatedly despoiled and demolished. Residents escaped to nearby towns then participated in the fights against conquerors. Beyond the losses of war, the plague also decimated the local population. After the Turkish threat, the town started developing. First, it was part of the Venetian Republic, then France ruled it.

History from the 19th century

The Vienna Congress gave it to Austria in 1815. In World War II Sukosan and the neighbouring town were under the control of the Italian Kingdom according to the Treaty of Rapallo. Therefore, the town lost its agelong central rule. It became subordinate to Biograd administratively, and to the Šibenik bishopric (under the archbishop of Zára) ecclesiastically. After the Italian capitulation in 1943, Croat troops marched in. Thus, it belonged to Croatia again. The Croat army and police, almost unarmed, prevented the penetration of the Yugoslavian People’s army’s tanks. At the same time, they stopped the attempt to bisect the country’s land area.
