General info: 

Primosten is a Croatian city that lies on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, in the southern area of the country. The city has become famous for the vineyards surrounding the city. Among the renowned vineyards, you can relax on the Raduca beach, voted to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the country.

When you get to the city, it is impossible to miss the vineyards, as they are scattered on all of the hills that surround the city, providing a great view.
