[VIDEO] Vodice & Prvić Island

prvic

Nearby the city of Šibenik on the Dalmatian coast, a little town called Vodice is situated…

Vodice in translation literally means „little water“. It makes sense because the town is filled with water wells – more than 50 wells throughout the whole town. All that fresh, clean water just 25 meters from the sea – well, that’s interesting. And, did you know that Croatia has its own Leonardo Da Vinci? Well, his name was Faust Vrančić and he was an inventor and a great visionary. His biggest invention was the parachute which he tested himself at the age of 60! Can you even imagine that? And it worked, luckily. All that, and his other great inventions you can see at the Memorial Center Faust Vrančić on the Island of Prvić, which is an Island opposite to town Vodice.
