Tribunj is a typical Dalmatian fishermen settlement. It was founded on an island which was bridged with a mainland. During time a part of a settlement have spread on a mainland. Tribunj is situated 15 kilometers west of Šibenik. Its alleys are the narrowest in the whole region. The reason for it is that people came here because of Turks invasion, and found shelter in a small fort.
Tribunj has the biggest fishermen fleet in this part of Dalmatia, so the port with a return of fishermen from the sea becomes a big market of fresh fish and seafood.
There are several beaches in Tribunj, but the most beautiful is one in a bay called Sovlja. Pebble beaches are suitable for familiy vacations, and the place provides a various offer of sports facilities.
Tribunj is also famous for domestic wine and oliv oil, as well as for traditional donkey race.
Tribunj is mentioned for a first time in year 1464 as Triubahunj, although it vas formerly known as the fort Jurjevgrad.
