Krapanj island croatia

Krapanj island croatia

Krapanj is an island in the central Dalmatia and county of Šibenik-Knin.  Island Krapanj is one of the smallest inhabited islands of the Adriatic Sea and also the most densely inhabited island with the lowest elevation of 1.5 metres above sea level. The island is composed of Mesozoic limestone and dolomite.

Tourism is known to be underdeveloped due to no access by car to the island via a bridge to the mainland. Therefore the island has preserved its culture, traditions and charm.  Traditions although date back to pre-history include wine production, olive oil, rakija, deep sea diving, and sea sponge fishing caught be local fisherman.  The krapanj monastry museum exhibits on sea sponge diving.  Among its antiquities held in the monastery include a “The Last Supper” (16th-century Italian artist Francesco da Santa Croce) and renaissance painting “The Black Madonna On The Throne”.

The Krapljanska Fešta is an annual event in August, held for a day, celebrating Gospe od Anđela (“Our Lady of the Angels”).  In this gathering, a cultural feast including good food and wine and centuries old culture are shared.
