Rogoznica lies to the south of Primosten and boasts one of the finest modern marinas on the Adriatic. The village is built on an island and was founded in the 16th century – it is now connected to the mainland by a causeway. The harbour and anchorage are in a sheltered, landlocked basin with wooded surroundings while Marina Frapa has been constructed on the mainland shore to the west of the village.
With its wealth of facilities, it’ll come as no surprise to learn that Rogoznica is very popular with visiting yachts, the marina offering charterers an infusion of luxury and comfort. The coastline of the island has a number of places ideal for a swim. With a good range of eating and drinking options, a convivial day or two spent here just soaking up the fine weather and good company is something to look forward to. There are bus links to Split, Sibenik and Zagreb if you are of a mind to explore Croatia further.
Split in particular is a fabulous city with much to interest the visitor, including an extraordinary Roman palace built for the Emperor Diocletian in AD300 or thereabouts, much of which still stands today and is a unique example of late Roman architecture. Diocletian’s mausoleum, now the city’s cathedral, is little altered from its original condition. Split also has a fascinating Nautical Museum, housed in the early baroque Milesi Palace.
