Mlin vjetrenjača

Kula nekadašnjeg mlina – vjetrenjače obitelji Ilić iz početka 19. stoljeća najbolje je sačuvana od 125 mlinova za žito koliko ih je bilo oko 1800-te na otoku Braču. Od 1903. otkada se žito više ne proizvodi u većim količinama mlin gubi krila koja su bila polegnuta horizontalna na ravnom krovu i pokretala su se snagom vjetra koji vrlo često puše na ovoj strani otoka. Zimi su to većinom bura iz SI smjera, jugo iz JI smjera, tramontana iz S smjera i levanat iz JJI smjera, a ljeti maestral iz Z smjera, te burin iz SI smjera. Jedan je od poznatih simbola Sutivana koji gosti često fotografiraju zahvaljujući njegovom položaju na samoj obali i sikovitom izgledu, okruženog stoljetnim borovima. Mlin je preuređen u stambeni objekt iako je mnogo izvornih detalja sačuvano u njegovoj unutrašnjosti ali posjeta je moguća samo u dogovoru sa vlasnicima. Obitelj Ilić bila je jedna od tri velike plemićke obitelji (Kavanjin, Definis) koja je na prelasku stoljeća imala razvijenu trgovinu vinom i maslinovim uljem sa Brača, centrala tvrtke bila je u Pragu a podružnice u svim većim europskim gradovima tog vremena.

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. Check them out!

Once you’re on the island, rent a car, use taxis or local transportation. For online booking with discount, click here.
