After the national park our journey leads us to the island of Krapanj known for its 3oo year old tradition of sponge production. Its only 300 meters away from the mainland, after the boat ride we arrive on the island. Once it was the most populated island with a size of 0.356 km2, with only 135 inhabitants residing today. Krapanj is the shallowest island in the Mediterranean with a height of 1.25 meters above sea. 300 years ago a Greek priest from the isle of Crete resided in Krapanj’s monastery. He conveyed the knowledge of sponge processing to the locals. Some fun facts about sponges in case you didn’t know, they are considered one of the most primitive animals, they have a dark brown color and they vary in sizes they can reach a size bigger then a human being. Centuries ago women would harvest and process sponges in Krapanj, today they don’t harvest anymore but they still hold the traditional female regatta boat race.
