    "Meist entgegenkommendes Verhalten der Hafenmannschaften."

Although it has a long and violent history, there’s one thing that links Sukosan to its earliest days – tourism. Even during the Middle Ages local monarchs built here summer residences to enjoy the countryside and healthy climate. Why shouldn’t you?

General Info
This popular destination sits in between Zadar and Biograd na Moru on what is Croatia’s touristic road along the Adriatic Coast. While not as big as other settlements, the small village of Sukosan boasts a long coastline with inviting pebble beaches, numerous intimate coves and of course, that Adriatic blue water that is so appealing to enthusiasts everywhere.

Travel & Arrival
Another bonus point for Sukosan is the fact that it’s relatively close to the city of Zadar, thus making it easy for any incoming organized groups to travel here. Zadar International Airport is just 9 km away, a mere 10 minute trip with a local bus or a taxi.

And as any self-respecting tourist destination, Sukosan isn’t far away from a major highway, in this case, the ubiquitous A1-E65, providing fast access to all the resorts on the Adriatic shore for European tourists. In order to reach Sukosan, you’ll have to get off at the exit to Zadar and then follow road 8 for 10 more km.

There’s also the option of arriving here by boat. Zadar port is linked by regular runs to Rijeka and Ancona in Italy. The trip back to Sukosan is made by local buses.

Avant & Apres Sail
Though small, the town has a long history and it can still be seen today in a number of old buildings. Like the former summer palace built in the 15th century. Sadly, today years of wars and constant earthquakes have reduced it to rubble, just 3 walls standing. Other locations interesting to tourists are the old church of St. Kasijan and the ruins of an old fortress on Cape Bribircina.

Though medieval in appearance, the town does cater to modern clients needs, especially when it comes to eating out. Most of the visitors swear the local seafood recipes are the best in the world, like the grilled squid.

Of course, there are also establishments that specialize in Italian cuisine, in case anyone in your crew craves pizza. And after all that eating, you’re bound to get thirsty. In that case, order a bottle of the local wines that are famous throughout Croatia.

The main square is the most animated place, be it day or night. Here most of the visiting sailors hang out at the restaurant or go shopping or simply stroll around town. On summer evenings folklore music festivals liven up the atmosphere.

Events & Actions
Sukosan is famous for its strong link to the past, for its strong roots in tradition. If you’re crew happens to be here in the middle of August you’re going to witness the feast of St. Kasijan, the town’s patron saint.

Another interesting time to visit is during the carnival, when the famous masques of Sukosan come out. These are particular to the region, meaning you won’t see them anywhere else in Croatia.
