SUKOSAN is a town and small harbour in a vast bay, 11 km southeast of Zadar.
Situated in the bay, Sukosan has a multitude of nice sand beaches. The town itself offers nice walks through the traditional narrow alleys. Due to its numerous restaurants and taverns, Sukosan is known as a place of wine and song.
Sukosan cherishes the old customs. They are linked to the feast of St. Kasijan, the patron saint of Sukosan (13th August). The Nights of Sukosan is another event offering entertainment. During the carnival season, "luzari", masques typical only of Sukosan, represent a special attraction.
The parish church of St. Kasijan, erected probably in the 11th century (fragments with of "pleter" motifs - interlacery ornamentation), assumed its present aspect in the 17th century. A small church from the 17th century rises on the graveyard. Fragments with "pleter" (interlacery ornaments) are incorporated in its door-posts and on the front.
The ruins of the 15th-century summer villa of the archbishops of Zadar can be seen on an islet in the bay. The ruins of the mediaeval fortress erected by the counts of Bribir rise on Cape Bribirina.
