Old town

Primošten is a charming fishing village 30 km to the south of Šibenik. 500 years ago it was an island encircled with a wall and was connected to the mainland by a draw bridge. The name 'Primošten' means 'the village at the bridge'. Later the narrow strait was banked up and the settlement spread further on the mainland. The old town is set on a hill with the Church of St. George on the top. The village and its environs are famous for the vineyards on the karstic hills where the red wine Babic is produced.
