Utvrda Baterija

Utvrda Baterija je smještena na rtu Zaglav, a sagrađena je 1806.g za vrijeme francuske uprave.

Nakon što su Francuzi uočili namjere ruskog brodovlja, koji su imali za cilj zauzeti srednjodalmatinske otoke, na zapadnom rtu Brača sagradili su utvrde i postavili bateriju od 4 topa, a kasnije je ojačali s 6 topova. U tome radu je bilo angažirano 150 bračkih seljaka jer francuska flota, kako to izvještava kapetan Barbieri, nije imala dovoljno ljudi, sredstava i materijala. Tim bakterijskim punktom nastojali su Francuzi spriječiti iskrcavanje Rusa na Brač i ulazak brodovlja u Splitska vrata odakle bi im bio otvoren put u splitsko i makarsko područje.

U prosincu 1806. godine kraj zapadne obale Brača došlo je do pomorske bitke između Rusa i Francuza. Bitka je trajala tri sata i u njoj ruski brod potopio jednu francusku topovnjaču i jako oštetio „Napoleona“ koji je nakon bijega potonuo u splitskoj luci. Na povratku je ruski brod uništio francusku bateriju od 4 topa na zapadnom rtu otoka, pa je time ruskoj mornarici otvorio put na Brač.

Na Korzici u Ajacciu, rodnom gradu Napoleona Bonapartea, Turistička zajednica općine Milna, s direktoricom Anom Grassi, predstavila je francusku fortifikacijsku utvrdu Baterija. Zahvaljujući ovoj vrijednoj kulturnoj ostavštini, Milna je primljena u članstvo federacije Napoleonskih gradova Europe. Članstvo za Brač i Milnu znači otvaranje novim turističkim tržištima i mogućnost valorizacije ovog ali i drugih kulturnih dobara, te razvoj projekata s drugim gradovima Europe i Hrvatske.

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.
