Pučišća

The most charming small place in Europe!

We can not even count how many websites and magazines in the world have listed Pučišća as one of the most beautiful small places in Europe! We could easily stop our description here since it should be more than enough of motivation for you to visit this little piece of heaven, but still. Here are the basics you should know traveling to Pučišća!

Pučišća (we know, hard to pronounce, isn’t it!) are known for many things, not just beauty. They are called a “13 towers port” since it used to have 13 towers guarding it against repeated attack by pirates. Sounds like a movie, doesn’t it?! Well, the history may not have been pleasant for this lovely place, but Pučišća still maintained its character and beauty for centuries.

Today, this most charming place is also known for its long masonry tradition, with the quarry most popular due to the legend that the White House in Washington was built with stones taken out of it. We know it was, you try to oppose it if you dare! 😉

This is also the biggest municipality on Brač (not counting the city of Supetar) with around 1500 people living in three villages – Pučišća, Gornji Humac and Pražnica. The latter are a true example of how people used to create villages out of scattered homes. They are also an example of  the best preserved archaic speech, which some local can’t even understand!

Gornji Humac, on the other hand, is one of the oldest and most prominent settlement in the history of the island. However, this is a place full of scars of time, especially from the World War II period. But, Gornji Humac emerged like a phoenix from its own ashes and is full of taverns and inns today.

For more serious information, please consider visiting the official page of Pučišća, and for more fun facts, please consider getting yourself a copy of Brač Pass. If you do that, we’ll reward you with nice discounts for you to enjoy this place to the maximum!

Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.

BY SEA ///

There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.

First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar.

Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website.
