Krapanj-Brodarica

Brodarica is a new settlement close to Šibenik. It has a four-kilometers long shoreline that serves as a promenade with pebble beaches, shops, restaurants, and bars along its way. In the southern part of Brodarica there is 'Morinjski zaljev' ('Morinje Bay'), which consists of around ten smaller bays and is famous for its healing mud. Brodarica is only 300 m away from the island of Krapanj, which is a historical centre of these two places divided by the sea, but still inseparate. With its highest altitude reaching 1,25 m the island of Krapanj is the lowest and the smallest inhabited Adriatic island.

Brodarica is a new settlement close to Šibenik. It has a four-kilometers long shoreline that serves as a promenade with pebble beaches, shops, restaurants, and bars along its way. In the southern part of Brodarica there is ‘Morinjski zaljev’ (‘Morinje Bay’), which consists of around ten smaller bays and is famous for its healing mud. Brodarica is only 300 m away from the island of Krapanj, which is a historical centre of these two places divided by the sea, but still inseparate. With its highest altitude reaching 1,25 m the island of Krapanj is the lowest and the smallest inhabited Adriatic island. The centre of the island is a typical Dalmatian one – a group of stone houses forming a network of narrow stone streets. Outside thisnetwork there is a centuries-old pine forest and the monastery of the Holy Cross, which is a home to numerous artefacts that tell the story of life on Krapanj throughout history. The tradition of fishing, diving, and sponge harvesting has been strong on Krapanj for centuries. The very beginnings of sponge harvesting go back to the end of the 17th century when friar Ante, upon his return from Crete, taught the locals how to harvest and clean the sponge. Until the beginning of the 20th century sponge harvesting had already become a very lucrative local business. The museum ‘the Oil Mill of St Lawrence’ from 1584, where you can seehow olive oil used to be made as well as what kind of olive oil products were once available, is also situated on the island. Feel free to buy a souvenir that will take you back to the 16th century.
