Rogoznica is a small Dalmatian place and a port located in a deep bay, about 32 km far from Sibenik. It is situated on a peninsula (former islet Kopara was connected to the shore in the second half of the 19th century by a man-made dam).
On top of the island one can find remains of the fort built by the French in 1809. The parish church was built in 1615 and the church of Saint Nicholas was preserved at the place where the Old Rogoznica had once stood.
Along the coast of the Rogoznica Riviera, there is a sequence of idyllic coves with inobtrusive beaches: Kanica, Lozica, Oštrička luka... their hinterland includes traditional households still very much alive in old stone houses, where one can sample the area's traditional specialties.
The sacred architecture of the Rogoznica Riviera is revealed in a walk through vineyards and olive groves delimited with dry walls. As they do not include mortar or any such material, the only thing holding them together is the skill of old craftsmen. Beside the church of Saint Nicholas in Lozica there is a graveyard containing standing stones with lunal and astral symbols, while the old Church of Saint Ivan of Trogir arises from the very cliffs of Ploče cape. It was built in the year 1324.
