It was an Illyrian settlement on the boundary between the Delmati and the Liburnian tribes. It was the capital of the Liburnians. It was better known as a Roman town, as the administrative and military center of the region. During the migration of the nations it was destroyed, but in the 9th century Croatians moved here. It has had its present name since the 10th century. It was one of the seats of the Bribir Šubić family. Between 1522 and 1684 it was ruled by the Ottoman Turks, then again up to 1794 by the Republic of Venice. Later, it was occupied by Napoleon as part of the French Empire, then Austria-Hungary. In time it lost its importance as the center of the region, which shifted to Šibenik, and so it stagnated - the Diocese of Skradin was abandoned in 1828.
