Primošten is a town in Croatia situated in the south, between the cities of Šibenik and Trogir, on the Adriatic coast. Set upon a little island linked by a bridge to the land with stone houses and narrow lanes in Mediterranean style, with many bays, islets and peninsulas, place with extraordinary sea. It is built on a hill and is dominated by the parish church of St. George.
Primošten has around 3000 inhabitants. Economy is based on farming, growing of vines and olives, fishing and tourism.
Primošten has a mild Mediterranean climate and is naturally sheltered from the winds.
Once an island, Primošten has preserved the atmosphere and all the architectural features of a medieval Mediterranean fishing village. Modern Primošten is teeming with vivid shops, small shops and souvenir shops scattered around the narrow cobbled streets, and the summer atmosphere is full of sports and entertainment contents.
Built on the hill it is dominated by the parish church of St. George built in 1485 and restored in 1760, close to which there is local graveyard from which a unique view spreads to the sea and the surroundings. This is also the highest point of the former island.
Today, Primošten is known for its production of olive oil and wine. Primošten vineyards of Babić sort incurred in the “barren land” in stone (Primošten’s lace), and with miles of stone walls, are ode to the human work and persistence. Their picture is exhibited in the headquarters building of the United Nations in New York.
