Santa Maria restaurant in Vodice

Attractions in Vodice

One location I advise, for those individuals in Zadar and Sibenik region, is certainly a fantastic and one-of-a-kind Santa Maria in Vodice being one of my preferred restaurant. Restaurant Santa Maria will certainly thrill you by outstanding Mexican and Dalmatian meals, and by amazing interior. Santa Maria has constantly been known for the extraordinary interiors loadeded with dozens and dozens of different items: every little thing from calling cards and post cards to the infrequent antiquities and precious artworks. All the things on the walls speak of Vodice, heritages, past ... and the designer responsible for the restaurant - Sime Pelajic Brunac. It was his journeys that motivated him to establish this exceptional restaurant that celebrates all senses and keeps you getting back as you basically can not see all the things in one trip, even when you turn up in early afternoon like we normally do. Owner Sime Pelajic is in addition well known for his efforts to improve Croatian tourism and he is a really colorful character.

Coric tower

Tower was constructed by the Fondra family from Sibenik in 17th century. The living areas and protection properties were reinforced by high protection walls considering that the tower was constructed during the course of turbulent periods. The natural stone with which it was developed was brought from island Brac. The captivating ambient of its backyard is these days used as an outdoor movie theater in the summer season.


Rakitnica is a tiny village that was initially mentioned in 14th century. Immediately alongside the residences, contours of which can still be seen, the Church of St. John the Baptist was constructed in 15th century. Considering that there are no permanent residents in the village these days, the church is in function just two times a year, on holidays commemorating the saint of the same name. Briefly, past of Rakitnica is common of the majority of the forts of Sibenik region-- a crucial location in the 14th through 16th century. Around 1509 on the mountain over Rakitnica settlement, residents started constructing Gradina fort, that is still highly maintained nowadays. Namely, back in the 15th century when Turkish invasions started to spread out into this region, the Venetian authorities in Sibenik passed a policy recommending that observation fortress needed to be constructed on all significant elevations close to villages to supply sanctuary for residents and protect themselves more effectively. The citadel of Rakitnica is still overshadowing the fields of a abandoned settlemet and it is very well worth the climb if you are on holidays in this region!

Church of St. Cross

Medieval church constructed in the early 15th century, more accurately in 1402. In 1421 it was devoted to St. Cross at which time it was also a parish church. It is well-known for one priceless detail, an old Romanesque-Gothic bowl connected to one of the columns, which is the only one of its type in this area of Dalmatia. Different cultural events and shows are held in its interior these days.

Church of St. Elijah the Prophet

Passionate residents had constructed this church in the late 13th century and it was the first church in the region. A wall structure encompasses the church and it is presumed that a burial site existed alongside it Despite the fact the church is in a state of collapse these days, there are still mass celebrations held annually, on 20 August, the St. Elijah's Day.
