The island of Kaprije is situated in the central part of the Sibenik archipelago with the surface of 9.67km2. It was named after the Mediterranean plant kapara (caper - green buds of a plant, used pickled).
In the 14th and the 15th ct. the island belonged to the families of the noblemen from Sibenik. During the Turkish invasions in this region in the 16th and the 17th ct., Kaprije was inhabited by the refugees from the mainland who, after the retreat of the Turks, partly leave the island. That's the period when St.Peter's church was built and later, in 1801 enlarged.
The place is surrounded by the hills among which the highest is Velika glavica - 132m above sea level. The island vegetation comprises grass and bushes and very rare pine forests. At the foot of those hills there are some smaller fields where mainly olives and grapes are cultivated. Besides the agriculture the inhabitants are known as skilled fishermen and seamen and lately also, as hospitable hosts.
