Only a few cities in the Adriatic have had such an eventful history as Primosten. City started as an island, proteced by the walls and connected to the mainland by bridge. Following the Turk withdrawal from these lands, the bridge was replaced with the bank making it a part of the mainland. Name Primosten suggests "to bridge over". Charmingly built and filled with friendly atmosphere, it is one of the favorite tourist destinations on the Adriatic. Contributing to the fame is the traditional donkey race being held annually in summer. Fascinating vineyards are one of the city's largest attractions, even and are even suggested to be protected as the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Overlooking Primosten is the 1485 Sv. Juraj church build by the cemetery. From there the sight on Primošten and the sea is simply spectacular. The largest beach in Primošten, Raduca, is declared as one of the top ten beaches in Croatia.
