Riviera Rogoznica

Rogiznica - In the heart of Northern Dalmatia

Idyllic and deep-cut coves such as Kanica and Ostricka string together like pearls at the Riviera Rogoznica. The hinterland attracts with its ecological paradises like the Krka national park and the Kornati national park, off the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Within thirty minutes to an hour one can reach impressive coastal cities like Sibenik, Trogir, or Split. At the same time, the Mediterranean flair and beautiful beaches make for an enjoyable vacation and guarantee an idyllic and recreational stay at the Northern Dalmatian coast. Due to its convenient location, the Riviera Rogoznica is accessible via the airports in Zadar and Split or by car via highway A1.

Rogoznica, a romantic coastal village, lies in a deep cut cove and has a well-developed marina that is protected by a promontory. This setting provides an excellent view of the gently swinging fishing boats and yachts as well as the island Kopora with its historic city center. Enjoying the Mediterranean flair is easy between typical Dalmatian stone houses and narrow alleys in the lively center of this picturesque coastal village. In the evening several taverns and restaurants of the historic district attract patrons with regional specialties, various fish dishes, and “black risotto.” Visitors looking for an active night life will find in the neighboring Primosten the Aurora disco, Dalmatia’s largest club.

Among the cultural highlights are the chapel of the Virgin Mary and the procession that begins every year on July 2nd. The chapel of the Virgin Mary is located on the peninsula Gradula west of Rogoznica and close to Marina Frapa. The Dragon’s Eye Lake, right behind the marina and close to the chapel, provides a great environment to go for a walk. Dragon’s eye is an oval shaped salt water lake, enclosed by steep rock cliffs, and its water level varies according to the tides. Legend has it that a dragon lives in these parts. The parish church is of historic

A beautiful chapel is located in the neighboring Podorljak. The chapel Sveti Petar was built in 1868 and was completely restored in 2000.


Hide in deserted coves

The marina Frapa makes Rogoznica a paradise for mariners – the marina is starting point for trips not only to the surrounding bays Stupin Celine, Stricka Luka, Kanica, Razanj which all offer dreamlike pebble stone and rocky beaches, but also to the archipelago Kornati located northwest of Rogoznica. The Kornati national park stretches over several uninhabited islands and occupies a space of about 220 km². The rich underwater world is especially interesting for divers. Near Primosten, a few kilometers north of the marina Frapa, lies the marina Kremik. This marina is among the most important centers for mariners in Dalmatia and belongs to the largest marinas in the region. The marina Kremik is a perfect starting point for longer sailing trips due to the fascinating islands of Northern Dalmatia. The medieval city of Sibenik attracts with imposing architecture, culture, and history.

Along the Riviera one always finds beautiful coves like Zatoglav east of the large cove of Rogoznica, and more coves near Razanj or in the South surrounding the village of Kanica. On the way to Primosten, too, one finds a beautiful place to swim in the cove Zecevo Rtic. The beach that flies the blue flag is the pebble stone beach Sepurina in Rogoznica. The gently sloping beach smoothly leads visitors into the turquoise, crystal clear water. Farther southbound the landscape loses nothing of its beauty. Instead, there are two magnificent cities Trogir and Split that are rich in architectural treasures, which grant them UNESCO protection. In particular, one should not miss a visit to the Diocletian Palace in Split.
