    Village of people or village of monuments?
    Selca – the first breath and the final destination of many stone monuments. Why do so many statues live in this village? The answer is pretty simple.

Only when stone was started to quarry and shape,... Learn More

  3. Little night music for a little night sail

    Little night music for a little night sail
    Although all islanders are a bit crazy, the thing about night sail, or going sailing at night, is actually about pure fun and relaxation. So why is this regatta taking place at night? It is because of the specific wind called gažul, a light wind that blows only during evening hours at Postira bay. Little night regatta is a sail competition made with no pressure and... Learn More

  6. Franz Joseph’s bridge to nowhere

    Franz Joseph’s bridge to nowhere
    Franz Joseph's bridge is located next to Ložišća, in the top of the Great Valley. It is assumed that once a river called Elafuza or Bretanida flowed underneath, but it hasn't been confirmed. The bridge was built during Austrian rule on the island, so the islanders named it after Franz Joseph as a sign of affection. Franz Joseph's bridge is interesting primarily because it leaves the impression that leads... Learn More

  7. Blaca desert – see it to believe it!

    Blaca desert – see it to believe it!
    Blaca desert is special in so many ways it's sufficient to say you won't find anything similar anywhere near or far. It stretches on fifty-six acres, between Dragovode and Blaca bay. It is considered a desert, because of the scarce nature which surrounds the lovely  monastery. Blaca desert was a home to many generations of monks since the seventeenth century.  For a time in history this... Learn More

  9. Tradicija obrade kamena

    Tradicija obrade kamena
    Tradicija obrade kamena vjerojatno je najpoznatiji turistički atribut otoka Brača, uz Zlatni rat. Brač je još od antičkih vremena bio izvorište vrhunskog kamena od kojeg su sazdane brojne značajne građevine. Splitska je posebno važno antičko izvorište kamena od kojeg je sagrađena i Dioklecijanova palača u Splitu! Danas su Pučišća centar kamenoklesarstva, a ova bogata tradicija se nastavlja i u jedinoj kamenoklesarskoj srednjoj školi u ovom... Learn More
