History and sightseeing Primosten

The ancient name of Primosten is Caput Cista, which means “bare-headed”. Primosten was first mentioned in some old documents of 1564. Then, Primosten was surrounded by stone walls with towers and connected with the mainland by a wooden bridge. Later, the bridge was replaced with an earth bank, and the island became a peninsula.

The main sight of Primosten is the Cathedral of St George. The cathedral was built in the 15th century, and it overlooks the whole city.
