Island of Brač
The Island of Brač has been known for its high-quality stone mines since ancient times. Did you know that the White House was built of stone from Brač Island? Brač has a strong masonry tradition that lasts for centuries, which you can notice on remarkable traditional architecture. The settlement is built mostly in a typical Mediterranean style. Stone-built houses, neat little alleys, peace and quiet are the initial evidence of the cultural splendor of former times.
Those remarkable white stones are located in a historical town called Pučišća. While entering the town with your sailboat the first sight is a big, breathtaking quarry that was founded in early 1455. Even the eldest stonemason school is located right in this town and it’s still operating.
Harbour and anchorage on Brač island
Milna harbor is one of the most visited harbors due to its large port and many facilities which are offered there. Yachts can be moored or anchored there. In addition there are many smaller bays around the island.
Bobovišća is one of the favorite ones due to its well protected harbor and beautiful landscape. Bol is one of the most popular locations to visit but it can be just during the day because there is no safe and protected bay to spend a night.
