Primosten is a picturesque island located on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. This Croatian gem is quickly becoming a popular destination in the Northen Adriatic area. Most of its popularity is derived from its beautiful beaches and amazing food, but there is more than just sun tanning and delicious eats that Primosten can offer.
Since Croatia became an independent country at the end of the Cold War, it has quickly brushed off the Soviet Union occupation and has become a true European hot spot. Although Croatia has only been a country since 1991, the Croats’ history can be traced back to the early part of the 7th century. With that much history and change of power, Croatia is littered with historical monuments, classical churches, and Roman ruins. So when you’re planning your next European adventure, don’t overlook Primosten; it may surprise you how exciting it can be!
Church of St. George
Although Primosten is a relatively small peninsula, the history gurus in the family can still seek out some amazing history without leaving the quaint village. Built on a hill in 1485 (later restored in 1760), The Church of St. George is a must see in Primosten. This classical looking church is situated on the top of a hill overlooking both the village of Primosten, and the waters of the Adriatic. It may sound a bit creepy, but the church is located on the local graveyard that has been in use for over 500 years. Creepy or not, that is some epic history!
The Adriatic Sea, with its spectacular sunsets is the obvious attraction of Primosten, but after you take in the beautiful scenery, your attention will be dragged to the miles and miles of vineyards lining the hills. Although Croatia isn’t very well known for its wine production, it is quickly becoming one of the hottest industries in the area. Take a break from the beaches and take a tour of the vineyards with the whole family, or more romantically, with your significant other. Be sure to try the Babić grape, the best-known grape variety in Croatia, or simply try them all and pick your favorite!
