Primosten

Primosten

Average distance: 8 km

Once an island, Primosten has preserved the atmosphere and all the architectural features of a medieval Mediterranean fishing village. The town is dominated by Sv. Juraj [St. George] on the highest point of the former island, and the Church of Gospa od Milosti [Our Lady of Mercy] and the chapel of sv. Roko [St. Rocco] certainly attracts our attention.

Naturally sheltered from the winds, surrounded by vineyards woven into a stone honeycomb, at the foot of the hills there is Kremik marina which is unique on the Adriatic. The view of the Babic vines in their stone cells on the nearby slopes is a special experience and testimony to how man’s hand can enrich and fertilize even the harshest landscape. On the Raduca peninsula, to the north of the town, in a pine forest, there are wide range of facilities.

Attractions

VINEYARDS BUCAVAC

The famous Primosten vineyards have become recognizable throughout the world for their unique composition of the grape, stone and sea. There is an ongoing project of including vineyards on UNESCO World Heritage List. If Bucavac will be included on UNESCO’s list, Primosten vineyards will become the second protected vineyards in the world.

BABIC

High quality wine Babic is produced from the grape sort of the same name which originates from the location of Primosten vineyards.
