Pretty little Primošten occupies what was once an islet just off the coast, 28km south of Šibenik. During the Turkish threat of the 16th century it was fortified, and when the Turks disappeared the drawbridge connecting it to the mainland was replaced by a causeway.
Sleepy to the point of inertia in winter, Primošten comes alive in summer, with bands playing in the main square, interesting gift shops selling their wares and excited kids racing around the cobbled streets. Romantics stroll up the hill to St George's Church to watch the sunset, and loop around the peninsula's perimeter after dark.
It's one of the loveliest towns along this stretch of coastline.
