Primosten is a town in Croatia, as well as a part of Šibenik-Knin County. It is located in the south, between the cities of Trogir and Sibenik, on the Adriatic coast. 97% of Primosten's around 3,000 citizens are Croats. In the past, the city was situated on the islet close to mainland. The total area of Primosten is 92 km2 (35.5 ml2).

In 1542 during the Turkish invasions the islet was protected by the towers and walls. A draw bridge connected Primosten to mainland. When the Turks retreated, it was replaced by a causeway. In 1564 the settlement was named Primosten after the verb "primostiti" (to bridge). Primosten is built on a hill. It is dominated by the parish church of Saint George, built in 1485 and restored 1760 near the local graveyard from which a great view spreads to the sea.

Primosten is famous for its huge vineyards. A photo of them hung in the UN center in New York City. Apart from the vineyards, Primosten is also famous for the traditional donkey race taking place there every summer. Primosten's largest beach is called Raduca. Its smaller part, Mala Raduca, is voted one of the ten most beautiful beaches in Croatia.
