Culturally interested visitors can choose from a number of landmarks and sights. Apart from visiting the many parish churches and cloisters you should also see...
- the Dragon Cave near Murvica
- the old Christian basilica in Povlja
- the parish church from 1566 in Pucisca
- the Blaca hermitage, which you can reach in a one hour hike
- the Heracles relief from Roman times carved into stone near Splitska
Next along the main road is our small village of Splitska, not yet touched by tourism and in a romantic location. At the harbour (400 m from the PANORAMA) there is a small supermarket where you can buy your bread in the morning. There are no hotel complexes here or disturbing night clubs.
After another 5 minutes by car, you will reach Postira. This is a town which has stayed original with much lively commotion around the harbor. The romantic settlement is surrounded by tangerine plantations, palm trees and blooming oleander plants. Postira offers a bit more action than its neighbor Splitska, but you still will not find any large and impersonal hotel complexes here.
The sand beach Lovrecina is only a few kilometers from here. Especially families with small children appreciate this bathing bay since it stays very shallow for about 25 meters into the sea.
The town of Pucisca is also worth a visit. It looks back on centuries of stonemason art and tradition. The “white stone of Brač” is obtained from the quarries here and was used, amongst other things, for the Diocletian Palace in Split, the Parliament Building in Berlin, the Parliament in Vienna and partially in the White House in Washington.
There are many other activities on Brač. You can...
- go swimming, scuba diving (diving school in Supetar), biking, surfing, play tennis, take a hike or a tour on your motorbike or mountain bike, go dancing or just go for a stroll
- rent a boat and explore pristine beaches which can not be reached by car
- spend a nice day on one of the excursion boats with a fish picnic in a cove
- visit the world famous Golden Horn („Zlatni rat“) in Bol
- visit the Blaca cloister, you can reach it in an hour's hike
- hike up the Vidova gora (or simply go by car) - with 780 m a.s.l. the highest peak of the island
offering a fantastic panorama view of the Golden Horn and the neighbouring island, Hvar
- take day trips to Dubrovnik or to the mainland to the
Cetina mountain river with an optional rafting tour
- Visit Split with its beautiful Old Town and the Diocletian Palace
