History of Krasici

Krašići was located at mountain side, a few kilometers from its present location. This place is now called Gornji Krašići (Upper Krašići) or Stari Krašići (Old Krašići) and current village is sometimes called Donji Krašići (Lower Krašići). The village graveyard is still located in the old village. Villagers lived mostly from planting olives and vines and producing olive oil and wine. After the great 1979 Montenegro earthquake, the village was heavily damaged and people have resettled on the current location at sea shore, which was prior to the earthquake used for small-scale fishing. In addition to their former occupations, they increased fishing, and, recently, tourism. In the 1970s, some tourists started building houses around the village in larger numbers.

This boomed and now they by far outnumber locals. The first tourist settlement is Krašići 1; after it, Krašići 2 was built. Tourists have also built the beach (which was a stony beach before that), streets and infrastructure in the settlement. Currently it has electricity, telephone and sewage, and random water supply.

Inhabitants

The only families which lived in the village were Francisković, Slavović and Petrović. It was the only Catholic village on Luštica though the families are celebrating slava. Original Krašići has some 15 houses; now, in addition to that, there are several small hotels held by locals. Nowadays with tourist settlements it has around 80 houses.
