Prvić

Prvić is a small island in the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea. It is situated in the Šibenik archipelago, about half a mile from the mainland, in the vicinity of Vodice. The whole island is under protection of the Croatian Ministry of Culture since the island is considered a cultural heritage.

The name of the island was possibly derived from the ancient Greek "Proteras", from which Prvin could have been derived, the name of the pre-Christian Croatian god of spring. The other theory says that the name derives from the fact that Prvić is the first ("prvi") island from the mainland in the Šibenik archipelago.

In the 14th and 15th centuries, the island belonged to noble families from Šibenik. During the Ottoman conquests in the 16th and 17th centuries, the island was inhabited by refugees from the mainland.

During World War II, many of the inhabitants of the island joined the antifascist movement. Prvić was highly important in defending the region against the Nazi occupation. There are many antifascist monuments on the island.

Tourism is the most important economic branch on the island. There is just one hotel on the island, Hotel Maestral in Prvić Luka, but locals rent their apartments, houses and villas to tourists.
