with our cruises
Rogoznica is a small and quiet place of beautiful nature and good atmosphere. It is a popular tourist fishermen's place situated in the central part of Dalmatia, near the City of Šibenik.
Written documents of the settlers in this area dates back to 4th c. BC. Fragments of pottery, amphorae, roof tiles, coins, graves, grave monuments, pieces of stone, and sarcophagi have been excavated in recent years. Scholars have concluded from these artifacts that life in the area flourished especially in Antiquity and Late Antiquity.
Take a walk through the alleys of the old town and enjoy harmony of beautiful scenery.
You can visit a chapel dedicated to Our Lady of the Chapel – patroness of the Rogoznica people and the harbour since 1776 and early 17th century Church Of The Assumption.
In direction of marina Frapa, 15 min walking from the place where the ship docks, you will find the lake Zmajevo oko (Dragon’s eye), with sea water. The lake is surrounded by sheer cliffs whose average height is 4-24 meters. The lake has no visible surface connections with the surrounding sea, but lake and sea water both seep through cracks and channels in the porous limestone. Over the centuries, it has happened that the lake "boils," or, as scientists say, there is a rollover of the water column. This unusual natural phenomenon inspired locals to invent different legends and giving it its name.
There are several restaurants in the old town centre where you can enjoy domestic specialties. For example, restaurant Antonijo on the promenade (Riva) offers various fish and meat dishes.
You can start your evening entertainment at one of many bars and cocktail bars in Rogoznica, enjoying cultural and entertaining program. For late night entertainment we recommend you night club Admiral located in Marina Frapa, or one of the most popular clubs in the region, discotheque Aurora next to Primošten (7 km from Rogoznica).
