The old part of Primošten is located on the islet that was joined to the mainland with a bridge during the Turkish invasions in 1542, which was afterwards replaced with the mound that gave the town its name ("Primošten" can be translated as "something that was added"). In some parts of the town the medieval atmosphere is almost intact, with narrow streets and compact houses.
