Rogoznica, a warm and quiet town at the end of North Dalmatia. It extends for almost 50 km of coastline, and it’s the perfect place to relax with your family and friends. Eager boaters are drown to one of the safest and loveliest ports on the Adriatic. Gravel and rock fill the beaches, and each district offers numerous hidden beaches in small coves. Rogoznica is known for a wide range of entertainments and cultural events, organized by the Tourist Board, that bring a special atmosphere to its streets.
The center of Rogoznica sits on a peninsula whose old stone houses are maintained, giving the waterfront an authentic Mediterranean atmosphere. The pine-covered peninsula is ideal for walking and other types of recreation.
Climate – The area surrounding the town of Rogoznica is located in the center of the Croatian coastal region that lies in the southernmost part of the Šibenik-Knin County, adjacent to the Split-Dalmatia County. On Capes Ploče or Planka, the jugo and bura winds collide, and warm and cold currents meet. The climate is one of Rogoznica’s most attractive features, and the area has an average of 2,600 sunny hours per year. During the four summer months, there are only four to seven rainy days on average.
Tourism – The first foreign visitors found Rogoznica to be a desirable tourist destination at the very beginning of the twentieth century, when the first hotel, called “Rogoznica,” was opened by the Lušić-Rankov family. Austrian and Italian senior military officers and tourists from Austria and the Czech Republic gladly stayed there. According to the research of the well-known ethnomusicologist Professor Ivo Furčić, in the first decades of the twentieth century Rogoznica’s rich cultural and social life became more developed. Regular balls were held at the hotel Rogoznica and elsewhere, and especially popular was the Carnival of Rogoznica, when masquerade balls were organized every Thursday and Sunday. During that time, Rogoznica became a weekend destination, too. In 1936, on the island of Velika Smokvica, a rich Austrian built his mansion, and at about the same time, Dr. Bronislava Prašek, founder of the pediatrics field in Croatia, constructed her villa in a pine forest on the island.
