If you are among those who really want to rest while on vacation, Srima is the right choice for you.
If you feel like some summer partying after a whole day of lying in the sun and swimming, Vodice is not far away. Vodice and Srima have actually been one for a long time – few people know where Vodice stops and Srima begins.
The Srima peninsula was inhabited as early as the prehistoric and ancient ages. The most valuable and best-maintained archeological locality is the dual late ancient basilica complex in Prizba.
On the hill above the settlement is a little church consecrated to Our Lady. This is a single-nave building with a bell tower. The original altar with a painting was burned down in the 1918 fire, so it was replaced with a Byzantine Lady with a silver shirt. On the apse of the church is a valuable fresco from late 12th century showing Mother of God with a Child and St. Vid’s and St. George’s figures. A picture of a plowman next to St. George’s figure is quite interesting, probably a self-portrait painted by the author of the fresco.
Srima is particularly well located as its wider area offers lively cultural events and entertanment.As all other villages around it, Srima organises its traditional summer fiesta and bowling tournament at the beginning of August – a popular event including local klape singing, good wine and Dalmatian gourmet specialities offered by the bowling organisers at the end of the tournament on tables around the bowling court (in a relaxed local atmosphere).
At night, Srima is ideal for parents with small children and all those longing for a good break from the fast pace of everyday life.
However, if you are looking for some fun and entertainment, or a delicious Dalmatian gourmet meal, in only 5 minutes by car or 20 minutes on foot, you can find yourself at the centre of a lively atmosphere of well-known cafes, night clubs, restaurants and numerous events organised in Vodice.
