Island Prvić


About the destination

Prvic, with its two settlements, Sepurine and Prvic Luka, was first mentioned in the 11th century. It was substantially inhabited by people from Srima and Vodice who fled here in fear of Turks. In the 16th century, the island became a fashionable resort for Sibenik nobility, building their villas and summer residences on it.

Sepurine has the summer residence that once belonged to the famous Vrancic family of Sibenik, which produced two significant persons in European terms: Anton and Faust.

Faust Vrancic was born in Sibenik in 1551. When one hears his name, it is first associated with parachute. Our Leonardo was a versatile thinker and scientist. Under the influence of his uncle Antun, a reputable church dignitary, diplomat and writer, he soon became famous as an inventor, lexicographer, historian and writer. Faust was the author of the first printed Croatian dictionary. He died in Venice in 1617, but his remains were transported to the Church of the Lady of Mercy in Luka at his own wish.
