The 5 best Vodice sights

Vodice may be a small town, but it still has some charming sights to offer. The sights of Vodice are a mixture of cultural, historical and natural attractions that allow visitors to experience the diversity of this Croatian coastal town. Let us introduce you to the best of them.

Church of the Holy Cross (Crkva svetog Križa): This baroque church from the 18th century is an important religious building in Vodice. The church is not only architecturally interesting, but also a place of peace and contemplation. However, you don’t have to be religious to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

Rakitnica Fortress (Tvrdava Rakitnica): The Rakitnica Fortress, a historic sight perched on a hill, is located near Vodice. From here you have an impressive view of the surrounding area, including the coast and the hinterland.

Coric Tower: At the heart of the old town, a few steps away from the parish church of St. Kriz, stands the Coric Tower, a remnant of the old fortress. It was built on the initiative of the Saracenis family. The coat of arms with the initials H.S. on the eastern side of the tower indicates that it could be that of Hieronymus Saracenis. In the 19th century, the tower became the property of the noble Fondra family from Sibenik, who rebuilt it into a residential building.

Vodice Aquarium and Marine Museum: This museum offers a fascinating insight into the underwater world of the Adriatic. It houses a variety of marine animals and plants found in the region and is especially interesting for families and nature lovers.

Hiking trail to Svetište Gospe od Karmela: Behind Vodice rises Mount Okit, to the top of which a hiking trail leads. On the top of Okit stands the church of Our Lady Karmina, built in the 17th century and destroyed several times over the centuries. The current design of the church was created by the famous architect Nikola Basic, who also designed the Sea Organ and the “Greeting to the Sun” square in Zadar.
