Rogoznica Croatia is a coastal town with a population close to 5,000 inhabitants. It is located on the Adriatic Sea and has been known as an agricultural center since antiquity. The city was first mentioned in 1196 from the name of “Raguso” who was a duke at that time. In the Middle Ages it was under the dukes of Krk and became an important trade hub for salt and fishing products.
Rogoznica’s favourable position by sea contributed to its growth as a trading center which continued until 18th century when it became part of Habsburg Monarchy.

How to reach Rogoznica?
Reaching to Rogoznica is dependent on where you are staying. There is Bus Connectivity from Sibenik, Primosten, Trogir and Split all the place.
If you are travelling from Sibenik/Primosten then all the buses which are heading to Split will drop you at the Rogoznica Central Bus Station, From there you have to walk around 1.5 Km to reach to the center of the city.
If you are travelling from Split/Trogir then you will have to take the bus in the direction of Zadar.
I booked the ticket from Omio for my Journey from Sibenik to Rogoznica and it costed around 3 euro only. However I checked the Cab ticket cost from Primosten to Rogoznica then it costed around 15 euro provided you find the cab.
One important thing to note is that buses have a certain timetables so it is easier to plan the trip if you check the bus tickets on Omio before hand. Normally the buses were on time just 5-10 minutes up and down.
Top Things to do in Rogoznica Croatia?
Dragons Eye is the main and one of the most popular location in Rogoznica and most of the tourist only squeeze this place in their Croatia Itinerary because of this.
This is a hidden lake surrounded by cliffs which was formed in a span of thousands of year and guess what, you can take dip in this lake if you like.
According to the legends the water level of the lakes decided whether the dragon is currently in the lake or it has gone out to fetch something to eat.
If you tend to have some free time then walk across the dragon lake where you hear the sound of water coming from and you will eventually reach a hidden rock beach which is actually just for you. I was the only one there on that beach when I visited.

Visit the Museum in the Sea
A British submarine took down an Italian freight ship named Nuncio between the Mulo lighthouse and the island of Velika Smokvica in January 1942. (literally translating to large-small fig). The wreck was discovered in 2008, although it took a long time to find. This sunken ship, along with a slew of others from various eras that lie beneath Rogoznica’s waters, has earned the area the moniker “the museum in the sea.” In these seas, diving is permitted; the majority of the divers are tourists and (unsurprisingly), scholars.
