Donji Humac

Donji Humac is one of the oldest settlements on the island of Brač, about 2 kilometers from Nerežišća, the previous capital of the island and home of Brač’s aristocracy. Around 150 people live in Donji Humac today. There are many things special about this village. First would most definitely be the Kopačina cave – cultural objects as well as the human remains dug out from this cave which is located about 1 km from Donji Humac, span several millennia in history!

On the side of the pre-Romanesque church of Saint Elias there are the remains of a Roman mausoleum, and on the wall of the medieval church of Saint Lucas there is the first sketch of a boat in Croatian medieval art. Art is a very important part of Donji Humac today, as well. This is the home to the most amazing art family on Brač – Jakšić family, which consists of painters, sculptors, fashion designers. Some of their work you’ll find in their gallery which is a must-visit, even if you’re not a huge art fan. We suggest you get yourself a copy of Brač Pass to get a discount on some of their amazing pieces. And when you’re done shopping, we suggest you rest a bit in one of the island’s best taverns, Konoba Kopačina, where you’ll enjoy not just the amazing meals, but also a variety of cultural objects and artifacts, some of which were found in the Kopačina cave mentioned before.

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!

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. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.

Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!

BY AIR ///

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. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač DeluxeRent a Motorino or M&B rent.
