Primosten travel guide
Picturesque town on a tiny conical peninsula; narrow streets packed with shops and restaurants make for a great evening atmosphere
Primosten is one of the most popular tourist resorts in Dalmatia and ranks among the most picturesque small towns on the Adriatic. The town is set on a small conical peninsula, and the old stone houses are packed tightly along the narrow streets that wind their way to the very heart of the town. After dark the town is buzzing with activity as tourist throng to the many restaurants and the Aurora discotheque, considered to be the largest in Dalmatia.The off-lying islands are most interesting. Excursions are regularly organised to Krapanj, where traditionally the inhabitants have been sponge divers. Today you can visit The Museum of Sponge Collecting. Zlarin is a small and delightful island with a population of 300 and a history extending back to the pre-Roman era. Traditionally inhabitants of Zlarin were coral divers. The famous local red wine, Babic, is first class and should definitely be sampled.
