Local Area

Croatia officially Republika Hrvatska (local) is located in Central and Southeast Europe, bordering Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia in the east, Slovenia in the north-west, Hungary in the north-east and Montenegro and the Adriatic Sea in the south.

The warmest area of Croatia is the Adriatic coast and, especially in its immediate hinterland characterized by the Mediterranean climate, as the temperature highs are moderated by the sea.
Now entirely liberated from Yugoslavia, the Croatian nation is arguably among the most enthralling although least visited countries in Europe. Nevertheless, vacationers that take time to explore this nation are sure to discover that there is plenty to see and do in this land rich in history, tradition and natural beauty.

A place where fertile fields melt into the glittering Adratic. As well as tourism, not supprisingly the main occupations in this area include farming, viniculture, olive growing and fruit growing. Evidence of these centuries old traditional occupations are to be seen everywhere; adding to the natural beauty and old world charm of picturesque Sukosan.

Sukosan town and harbour nestled in the heart of a long indented coastline aptly named Golden Port, or as we say locally Zlatna Luca, really are Dalmatias hidden jewels. Located just 11 km south-east of Zadar, Sukosan is only a few minutes by car from the Adriatic highway and Zadar airport.
The name Sukosan or Sanctus Casanus, was first mentioned on a legal document in the year 1289, but the village itself is much older. The remains of a medieval settlement can be found at the bottom of Zlatna Zucas shallow and sheltered lagoon.

Inside of the former village walls, Sukosan is meshed by narrow streets shaded by the old stone-built houses bearing signs of the former turbulent centuries. In the central part of this medieval village is the parish church dedicated to the protector of Sukosan - Saint Casanus. Local people are proud to still have a bell tower that chimes during daylight hours ensuring no excuses for missing lunch as you always know the time here!

Talking of lunch! A charming place to enjoy some is in one of the alfresco seated resturants on the square Gornja vrata, overlooking the renovated old villas and a chapel dedicated to the Virgin Mary. During the summer season, various culture and entertaining performances take place on this square.

One of the most iconic images of Sukosan would have to be Archbishop Matheo Valaressos summer palace. Built during the 15th century on an artificially made islet in the lagoon these ancient walls provided shelter for local inhabitents from Ottoman attacks. Over the centuries, natural decay as well as the wars and earthquakes which have hit this region have inevitably left their mark on the former palace. Today only three walls remain jutting out from the sea, truely a sight to behold in the evening when the sun sets down precisely between two walls.
Today Sukosan spreads around the entire spacious bay, and the original village is just a heart of this popular tourist destination. Inumerable bays and beautiful beaches line the coast one is simply spoilt for choice and can be sure to find a private secluded cove away from the maddning crowds even during the busy summer months.

Sukosan has many cafe bars and resturants infact due to their number I have read Sukosan is considered as a place of wine and song! Beachfront establishments tend to close during the winter but there are pleanty of places in the villiage, overlooking the harbour and vicinity that are open out of season so you can enjoy our Dalmatian culinary specialties all year round.

The villiages Debeljak, Glavica and Gorica adjoin Sukosan and are also charming places to visit while you are on holiday in Sukosan. The town has around 3000 full time inhabitents, we have a kindergarten, an elementary school with equipped sports hall, post office, ATM machines, grocery shops, local produce markets, medical and dental practice, and everything else that makes this a pleasant place to live and vacation.

We are fortunately situated in Sukosan having the largest marina on the Adriatic coast on our doorstep, add to that 5 National Parks and 2 Nature Park very close by, well maintained beaches and untouched nature, hospitable people with rich cultural heritage, festivals and entertainment programs, great food, low tax on ciggarettes and alchol, 2350 hours of sunshine every year, need I go on!.... There really is no wonder that Sukosan has been attracting domestic and foreign tourists who return year after year.

Summer or winter a place all of the family will be sure to love whatever the season.

The accompaniying functional bell tower a twentieth century addition plays an important role in everyday life of the village.

Located on the square Church of our Lady grace fronted by restaurants offering alfesco dining was built during the Candian war and plague in 1650. A testamant to the Virgin Mary for sparing us the plague raging at that time in this area.

The Church of Saint Martin in the Kaštelina area was in ancient times the parish church of the medieval village Prljan. Overlooking the vineyards, olive groves and bay of Sukosan now sits a peaceful structure which has been witness to the the tumultuous history of this region. Repeatedly completely destroyed, the last time late 1991 by the Chetniks during the cival war locals believe that it is Saint Martin protector of the harvests who kept Sukosan safe. Every year we celebrate our fruitful crops with a festival in the name of Svete Martina.
