Tourist destination info Krapanj - island Krapanj

Krapanj is located in the Šibenik aquatic region and is the lowest and least settled island on the Adriatic. Its highest point is 1.25m above sea level. Sea sponge and red coral nurseries spread over its rocky regions. The island is known by its sea sponge, which is valuable because of its high quality and beauty, and by its scuba diving activities. The beaches on the island are pebbly and appropriate for children’s play, so we would recommend this location for families with children and those who like to take part in sports activities. Its most notable historical monument is the Krapanj monastery (holds highly valuable which are protected by the state; the most valuable are the painting of the Last Supper from the 16th century and the Renaissance painting of the Byzantine Madonna on the throne). The monastery also has a special museum – a collection of sponges, corals, amphorae and antique dishes. The town has seven grocery stores and several automobile service stations. As is the case in all Dalmatian towns, Krapanj hosts various summer festivities, of which the most popular is the “Krapanj festivity” (a celebration of the Lady of Angels, held traditionally for many decades). You can taste the culinary specialties of this region in the restaurants “Spongiola”, “Kapelica”, “Krapanj” and “Ronilac”. Some entertainment is offered in several cafes, however, those who prefer to be out until the early hours of the morning can visit the night clubs in Vodice, Primošten and Šibenik.

Vodice is a tourist center located in a wide bay. The town takes pride in its tradition and age. Visit the church of Karmela, the Ćorić tower, church of St. Elijah the Prophet, church of the Holy Cross and the parish church of the Holy Cross with its bell tower to get acquainted with the history of this beautiful town. Sports and recreation lovers can enjoy beach volleyball, soccer, basketball, cycling, scuba diving, fitness in the sea and various other activities. Vodice has received the “Tourism Flower Award” because of its attractive tourist offer.

Primošten is a beautiful island town, surrounded by seven islets. It has maintained its Mediterranean charm which is evident in its tight streets and stone houses in the center of the town. The main sights in this town are the Church of St. George from 1485 and the church of St. Rocco from 1680. Sports and recreation lovers can enjoy tennis, table tennis, mini golf, beach volleyball, jet ski riding, floaters, parasailing, and a diving center with scuba diving school and many others.

Šibenik is the oldest self settled city in Croatia, located at the mouth of the Krka river. If you wish to get acquainted with the history of the city, you can visit its historical monuments ( fortresses of St. Michael, St. Nicholas, St. John and Šubićevac, cathedral of St. Jacob, church of St. Francis, church of St. Dominic, Four Wells square), as well as its museums and galleries (Šibenik City Museum, Gallery of St. Krševan, AG Gallery, Madrigal gallery).
