Vranjic (Italian: Vragnizza) is a town north of Split, near the mouth of Jadro River, part of the municipality of Solin. Because of its beauty it was nicknamed "Little Venice". The church of Saint Martin, the pope, is a place of cultural heritage, with sacred folk music performers Crkveni pjevači župe Sv. Martina - Vranjic.

Vranjic is the birthplace of one of the greatest archaeologists for early Christianity – Don Frane Bulić. Klapa Hurania (Latin name for Vranjic) also comes from the town. There is a small rustic villa there, leading people to believe that Vranjic was a vacation destination for rich Salonitan citizens (Salona – Colonia Martia of Iulius Caesar, the present-day town of Solin).

The town's population was 1110 in the 2011 census.[1]
