Rogoznica is located in the very heart of Dalmatia, most beautiful part of Croatia. It is just 30 km south from Šibenik and 50 km north from Split, making it a perfect starting point for daily excursions to a number of destinations on Croatian coast, including Trogir, National Park Krka, NP Kornati, NP Plitvička jezera, Šibenik, Split, and even Dubrovnik.
Rogoznica is a picturesque village situated on a peninsula, which is the most protruded part of the Croatian mainland, penetrating deeply into the Adriatic Sea. Rogoznica has a 54 kilometer long coastline with magnificent bays and small islands with their intact nature, clean sea, secret beaches and old pine tree woods that just take your breath away. Surrounded by numerous hills, it makes a great destination for an active holiday of hiking or riding bikes. Precisely because of its unique geographic location, Rogoznica is the safest harbour on the Adriatic. It is also a home to one of the best and largest marinas on the Mediterranean – Marina Frapa.
This small Dalmatian town has a rich history too. Once it was a greek colony called Heraclea, a century ago it was a fishermen’s village and today it is a peaceful tourist destination in the rise. With its specific local cuisine and friendly people, it is a place of amazing atmosphere, where you shall feel instantly relaxed and at ease.
While here, you should pay a visit to the Church of the Assumption (orig. Crkva Uznesenja Marijina), built in 1746., and the Church of St. Nicholas (orig. Crkva Sv. Nikole) which has been withstanding the test of time since the Middle Ages. You should also visit the salt lake called Dragon’s eye and, if you’re lucky, you may even catch the annual ‘The dragon awakes’ festival – a reconstruction of the old folk story that speaks about the origin of the lake.
Rogoznica is only 33 km away from Šibenik, 20 km from Trogir and 50 km away from Split. All of these Dalmatian cities have very rich history and many monumental landmarks which, in combination with breathtaking nature surrounding them, make each and every one of them a place you will never forget. All three are great tourist destinations as well, with many clubs, restaurants, bars and places to shop.
