Murter - Vodice
The picturesque holiday resort of Vodice is located between Sibenik and Biograd na Moru on the coast of the Dalmatia region. The small town with almost 9,000 people is one of the most popular yacht charter destinations in Croatia. The almost 4km long promenade and the old town form the centre of Vodice.
While it is rather quiet in the small, romantic alleys of the old town, you will find a lively promenade with shops, cafes and restaurants. The round pebble on Plava Plaza beach, which slopes gently into the crystal clear sea, is particularly popular with families with children. Along the beach, ice cream parlours lure you with all sorts of delicious ice cream flavours and bars and cafes provide you with cool drinks or Italian cappuccino on hot summer days. The varied sports and leisure opportunities around the Plava Plaza ensure that there is no boredom during your beach days.
In addition to the city beach, there are many other beautiful beaches and bays on the Vodice Riviera, such as the beach in the Srima district and the offshore islands. In the evening it is recommended to enjoy the delicacies of Dalmatian cuisine in the restaurants and taverns along the waterfront. Most of the restaurants on this culinary mile have beautiful terraces from which you have a wonderful view of the large marina of Vodice. Then it is up to you whether you want to end the evening with a romantic stroll along the waterfront or through the quaint alleys of the old town or whether you want to immerse yourself in the lively nightlife of Vodice. “Moje Misto” Vodice, which means “my place”, is how Vodice describes itself. Perhaps it is also your place for the most beautiful weeks of the year.
The parish church of the Holy Cross (St. Cross) built in 1746 by the famous Ivan Skok is one of the most important Baroque buildings in Dalmatia. In 1725, Skok worked on a chapel above the main altar, which was later added to the church. The construction of the bell tower took 20 years and began in 1752. The harmonious facade with a magnificent, baroque portal and rosettes was dedicated to the Holy Cross.
Church of Holy Cross
The Okit hill rises behind Vodice, and a path leads to the top. The Church of Gospa od Karmela (Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel) stands on the top of Okit hill. The church, built in the 17th century, has been destroyed several times over the centuries. The current design of the church was made by the well-known architect Nikola Basic, who also designed the sea organ and the “Greeting to the Sun” square in Zadar.
