Best things to do in Rogoznica

Quiet and warm Mediterranean small town of Rogoznica is an ideal place for a vacation with your family or friends. Sailors love it, too!

This charming town is one of the most beautiful and safest anchorages of the Adriatic. In addition, Rogoznica has over 2600 sunny hours a year which is a great bonus as well.

Events

The Tourist Board of Rogoznica organizes different events in the summer months. The streets of Rogoznica exude a special atmosphere.

The return of the painting of Our Lady by boat from the Parish Church to the Chapel on the Gradina peninsula is a 240-year-old tradition that takes place in Rogoznica every year. Furthermore, it is always accompanied by a procession on land and at sea.

Aquathlon Rogoznica in June is popular among sport lovers. It’s a combination of running and swimming and has categories even for the youngest.

Likewise, art exhibitions, concerts, and operas regularly take place in Rogoznica in the summer. 

Nature

The center of Rogoznica is situated on a peninsula. The old stone houses add to the authentic Mediterranean atmosphere. Most parts of the peninsula are covered in pine forests. As a result,  Rogoznica is ideal for hiking and recreation.

Beaches

Rogoznica stretches along almost 50 km of the coastline and has countless, mostly pebble, beaches. Every settlement offers a unique bay with a hidden beach. Surely, even the most demanding visitors will find their idyllic spot under the sun!

Dragon’s Eye Lake

This lake is a unique natural phenomenon of the Eastern Adriatic. It is surrounded by vertical cliffs that go up to 24 meters . The lake is situated on the Gradina peninsula just between Soline and Koprisce bays.

Every few years, layers of water mix and it seems like the water is boiling. Although there is now a scientific explanation, in the past the locals made up their own. There are many legends about various creatures that inhabit the lake. However, the two most popular ones involve a dragon, hence the name.

Cape Planka

Only 2 km southeast of Rogoznica cape Planka is located. It is the most jutted point of the Eastern Adriatic land. This cape separates South and North Adriatic. It’s where the south and north winds, cyclones and anticyclones, the sea currents meet. This results in the impressive, not-to-be-missed nature spectacle!

Thus, Cape Planka is the reason why it almost never rains in Rogoznica. For example, Split (55 km away) and Sibenik (38 km away) have approximately 3 times more rainy days than Rogoznica.

National Parks

Krka

National Park Krka, situated on the Krka river, consists of 7 magnificent travertine waterfalls. The park is only 40 kilometers away from Rogoznica and you can go as far as Skradin by boat.
