Poljica is the second largest place in Vrsi Municipality. Poljica are part of the agricultural oasis of the Vrsi municipality. Poljica is located in the west of Ravni Kotar and about 3 km away from the sea. The area is 12.24 km², with 427 inhabitants.

Unfortunately, there is not much to tell about the history of the place itself, because there are no historical documents that would help, apart from some ecclesiastical registers.

Due to their geographic position, the two cultural influences of Northern Dalmatia have diverged in the Poljica because of their geographic position: the Dinaric and the Adriatic which brings specialties in the way of life, dialect, etc. Poljica could still be called the green oasis of Vrsi Municipality. Local people are mostly engaged in agriculture; with the cultivation of fruits, vegetables, vines, olives and figs.
