The island of Krapanj is the lowest and smallest inhabited island in the Adriatic. It is part of the Šibenik archipelago and is 300 m offshore at its closest point from Brodarica.

Its highest altitude does not exceed 1.25 meters. The island is known for its sea sponges, and all this date back to a Franciscan friary from Crete, who introduced the local inhabitants to sponge diving and sponge gathering over three centuries ago. In addition, Krapanj is the island of a centuries-old tradition of diving and fishing. The center of the island is a settlement of mostly stone houses that form a narrow strip of narrow streets, characteristic for the Dalmatian landscape. Separated from this narrow strip are the centuries-old pine forest and a monastery of the Holy Cross, in which museum numerous exhibits are kept to testify about life of the inhabitants of Krapanj in the past.
