Prvić is a small island in the Croatian part of Adriatic Sea. It is situated in the Šibenik archipelago, about half a mile from the mainland, in the vicinity of Vodice. The whole island is under protection of the Croatian Ministry of Culture since the island is considered a cultural heritage. The name of the island was possibly derived from Prvin, the name of the pre-Christian Croatian god of spring. The other theory says that the name derives from the fact that Prvić is first ("prvi") island from the mainland in the Šibenik archipelago.
In 14th and 15th century the island belonged to noble families from Šibenik. During Ottoman conquests in 16th and 17th century, the island is inhabited by refugees from the mainland. During World War II many of the inhabitants of the island joined the antifascist movement. Prvić was highly important in defending region against the nazi occupation. There are many antifascist monuments on the island.
