Primosten is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Dalmatia and one of the most picturesque towns on the Adriatic. Strolling the streets of the old town you will pass numerous family local shops, small restaurants and pizzerias.
Primosten is located in central Dalmatia between Sibenik and Trogir. In the eleventh or twelfth century, 80 families fleeing Serbian persecution of Bosnian Bogomils (Orthodox Christian sect) asked for help magistrate Sibenik. Stewards of town loaded refugees on ships and transported 10 miles to the south, and then about 4 km inland. Today there are villages and Krusevo Prhovo. There, with the help of Sibenik refugees built a church and houses. However, when the Turks, defeating Serbia, began to tread the Dinaric Alps, threatening the Venetian possessions, including Sibenik, assimilated Bogomili about 1480 fled to the coastal island of Gola Glava and built on her walled village defense combined with the mainland by a drawbridge (hence the name, first mentioned in 1564) a defensive settlement. It leaned against a Turkish invasion in 1542. When the Turkish threat has ceased, in the eighteenth century, the island was connected to the mainland by a dike, a narrow center of lack of space settlement moved to the mainland. And the walls were demolished.
Therefore, the town has an interesting urban layout. Its center was not located on the former island now, but its contact with the mainland. From combined in one of several sites spread out into the streets in the newer part of the island and the mainland. On the island streets climb towards the seventeenth-century Church of St. George.
Today Primosten is a popular tourist destination. In season two thousand permanent residents attach as many holidaymakers seeking sun and warm sea. The town is literally swamped with travelers, mainly from the Polish, Czech and Slovak. Especially besieged is beach Mala Raduca, considered one of the most beautiful in Croatia. Also, because it is the only one. Because the old part of the village is surrounded by only rock. But the vacationers and the advised, use what they have.
But almost none of the weight of holidaymakers do not have a clue that the nearby vineyards are a UNESCO World Heritage Site together with the Egyptian pyramids, Diocletian's palace and Krakow Wawel.
The distinctive red soil suitable for the local wines a unique flavor and aroma. It is no wonder that Croatian wines are highly prized by connoisseurs. Except that is nearly impossible to buy, almost all production is drunk on the spot. So in order to try a great Croatian wine, you need to go to the Adriatic Sea.
The colors of vineyard are arranged in a Croatian flag: red soil, white rocks and blue sea ...

Croatia and Slovenia have such a wonderful towns along the Adriatic coast!
I haven't visited Primoten but from your POV it looks absolutely attractive located on that long peninsula.
Excellent inclusion of the green coastline on the foreground and the mountains on the distance.
The white and red of the town contrast beautifully with the blue Adriatic.
Best regards, Paul
