ROGOZNICA



ROGOZNICA
is not just a diving paradise. Diving Rogoznica is full experience only if you meet village and people as well.

Rogoznica village and harbor in the cove bearing the same name, between Split and Sibenik; population 825. Chief occupations are farming, fishing and tourism. The village is located on the peninsula (the former islet of Kopara was connected with the mainland by an artificial dyke in the second half of the 19th c.) which divides the cove of Luka Rogoznica into the western and the eastern part. The cove of Rogoznica east of Cape Ploce is a favorable shelter for yachts. Rogoznica lies on a local road, branching off from the main road (M2, E65).

Pine forests, nice beaches and a picturesque and well-protected location make Rogoznica an attractive tourist destination. In addition to bathing, scuba diving and other water sports, visitors may enjoy cultural and entertainment programs, organized during the tourist season. The most important events are the Rogoznica Fiesta (held on the first Saturday in August) and the Fishermen's Night.
Since Rogoznica has a number of fishermen, fresh fish is regularly offered. Among local specialties, the best is Rogoznica-style fish stew ("brudet").

Rogoznica was populated as early as ancient times. The parish church was built in 1615 and reconstructed in the 19th century. On top of its village are the remains of a fortification; the construction was started by the French in 1809. - In the Rogoznica field are mediaeval churches of St. Nicholas (with stele) and Bl. John of Trogir, constructed in the mediaeval Dalmatian architectural styles; an artificial island was made in the bay in 1993-1996, to be used as a marina.

Rogoznica also offers fencing opportunities. The fencing school and the International Fencing Camp at the Fencing Club "Galeb Grafoplast" have been active since 1987. Organized excursions are also offered.
