The town of Vodice is located 13 km from the city of Šibenik. Vodice is considered one of the ancient Croatian towns. Unofficially, the residents of this small town call it “our little Barcelona” due to the numerous picturesque galleries located in the central part of the city. The name “Vodice” is derived from the many sources of fresh water, some of which are located right in the city center. Like all resort towns in Croatia, Vodice boasts a long waterfront, picturesque streets in the old town, numerous restaurants, and a pleasant relaxed atmosphere.
