Tourist destination info Rogoznica

Rogoznica is a quiet Mediterranean town, whose center lies on a peninsula that is the former island of Koper, connected to the mainland by an artificial mound in the second half of the nineteenth century. Most of the island is covered with forests while the populated area is characterized by old stone houses reflecting the spirit of the old Mediterranean. The town is known as one of the most beautiful and safest ports, which is why boaters like to visit. The locals engage in farming, fishing and tourism.

Be sure to visit the cultural heritage of Rogoznica: church of St. Nicholas, church of St. John of Trogir, the parish church of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Heaven, Our Lady of the Chapel and the remains of fortifications built by the French at the top of the town. It is believed that the Rogoznica field was a Greek colony Heraklea. Of natural phenomena, visit the salt lake called "Dragon's Eye." Rogoznica is known for its beautiful pebble, concrete and stone beaches where everyone can find their niche.

The town has its own marina, marina Frapa, situated in the Soline bay and owns 400 high class boat moorings. Sports lovers can enjoy numerous water sports, hiking and many other activities. Take a walk along the shore in the evening, visiting restaurants, bars and enjoy the fisherman’s night celebration in Rogoznica.

Did you know? ... According to legend, fisherman Ivan M. Bogović Tumburko, while catching fish around the Cape Peninsula Gradine in 1722, found a painting showing Mary visiting her cousin Elizabeth. Locals along with then priest decided to build a chapel on that same place. The black measles epidemic in 1887 took up to 40 lives a day in Rogoznica. The faithful decided to put an end to this suffering, leave barefoot to the shrine of Our Lady, and from that day (24 January) people stopped dying and the sick were healed.

    • Fabulous 4
      Couple Slovakia (Slovak Republic)
      Rogoznica is a turistic place, with big port. There are many restaurants and bars, place perfect for walking near the sea and enjoying later evening atmosphere.
      Rogoznica is not a place to choose if you want spent your holiday on the beach, there are few beaches, full of people. Croatia offers many of better beaches..on my opinion :) Also Rogoznica is not the cheapest place.

      A little bit dissapointed
      It was a nice village. But we read in on the internet and everything looked really nice. But when we arrived it was a little disappointing. Tourism is just starting a bit so you should not expect much from it. In the area, trogir and split are really recommended to go to. Eating out in rogoznica is really nice and certainly not expensive. Despite the small setback, it is certainly a pleasant Town.
