The town has 2.710 sunny days per year, but the summer heat is lightened by the „Maestral” wind that blows from the sea.

History and sights

Although Vodice was well known even from the period of the Roman Empire, it is first mentioned in 1402. The name Vodice was derived from the abundance of water with which the inhabitants then supplied the surrounding area. The town walls from the period of Turkish invasion witness the history of this town, and the „Coric” tower is best preserved fortification monument. One should also visit the Church of St. Cross from the 15th century and the Baroque parish church bearing the same name (in the centre of Vodice). Near Vodice, on the hill Okit, the Church of the Lady of Carmel is situated, built by the inhabitants in the mid 17th century during the Turkish invasion.

Today

The inhabitants of Vodice are mostly engaged in tourism, but agriculture and fishing are also important for the town's economy. Numerous tourist facilities, sports grounds, boat and bus trips, as well as an interesting cultural events contribute to the rich tourist offer of Vodice. The tourists can choose among various accommodation types - hotels, apartments, villas, private rooms and camps.
