The summer months are marked by numerous traditional entertainment and cultural events. In the 16th century, the islet settlement was connected with the mainland by a bridge. The name Primosten is derived from the Croatian word »primostiti«, which means »to bridge«. It was surrounded by a wall with towers which were removed in the 19th century. Today, Primosten is connected with the mainland by a causeway. The Church of sv. Juraj (St. George) from the 15th century was reconstructed in 1760.
