Primošten is a tourist settlement 28 km to the south of Šibenik, located on an islet not far away from the mainland. During the period of Turkish invasions the islet was protected by defence walls with towers and a movable bridge built in 1542.

Primošten was called Caput Cista (a bare head) in old documents. The name Primošten was for the first time mentioned in 1564, and it was derived from the verb "to overpass" (in Croatian: primostiti).

After the Turks had retreated from Dalmatia, the bridge was replaced by an embankment, so Primošten became a peninsula which, together with the peninsula of Raduča, makes a unique and specific natural whole.

Accommodation is available in hotels "Zora" and "Slava", auto-camp "Adriatic", as well as in private accommodation - rooms and apartments of the highest quality. Yachtsmen will be interested in the nautical port "Kremik".Primošten is also well-known for the famous red-grape sort "Babić", produced from Primošten’s world-known red-grape sorts. As a symbol of hard human work throughout centuries, a picture featuring Primošten’s vineyards is permanently exhibited in the building of the United Nations in New York.
