Once an island, Primošten 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 Babić 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 Raduča peninsula, to the north of the town, in a pine forest, there are hotels and beaches with a wide range of facilities.
If you want to sample the dry red wine Babić, that has earned many fans amongst the world’s wine lovers, then visit Primošten, a tourist town 28 kilometres south of Šibenik. Once upon a time it was an island, and the town was first mentioned under its present name in 1564. With the passing of time it was connected to the mainland via the construction of an isthmus. Primošten’s centuriesold vineyards, from where this famous wine originates, can also be admired by visitors to the United Nations building in New York, where their pictures have been displayed as an icon of hard labour throughout the centuries. You can hear the story of life in this picturesque part of the Šibenik region at the Primoštenski užanci festival, one of the long-established traditions of the area. This event takes place during the first two weeks of August, and with a glass of fine wine and some home-cooked fish you can witness the staging of a traditional Primošten wedding, and also have fun at the donkey races.
The Marina Kremik is situated not far from Primošten, in a picturesque cove surrounded by century-old vineyards. It is set deep into the land and is one of the most protected marinas in the Adriatic. The Kornati National Park is 30 nautical miles away, and Split airport only 30 km. The marina has a restaurant, a supermarket, a nautical equipment shop and technical services.
