BLACA - VIDOVA GORA - ŠKRIP

Can you believe there is a desert on Brač? An island full of life and nature, surrounded by the most beautiful sea, is truly special in so many ways!

The Blaca desert is a natural monument unique not only on Brač but also on the entire Croatian coast. It is considered a desert because of the scarcety of nature in this area. Its beginning was a stone-rebuilt cave - the first shelter of priests from Poljica. Along the steep cliff, deserted hermitages paved the church and monastery, residential and commercial buildings, and transformed the vast forests into rich vineyards and olive groves. Blaca desert, which was also an astronomical observatory, is a natural and cultural phenomenon, as well as a valuable monument to human work and persistence.

The road to Blaca is a dirt path of 2 kilometers and it is intended only for walkers. We will walk this path to the monastery and museum, whose inventory includes a valuable astronomical collection of the last desert. This is one of the most visited museums on the island.

Brač is the highest of all Croatian islands. From Vidova gora which is 778 meters high, there is a spectacular view of the famous Bol beach „Golden horn“, the islands of Vis, Hvar and Korčula. With a bit of luck and a good wind the view can reach even Italy. Just a little imagination and you can shoot the best selfie. For those in love Vidova gora is often an ideal place to say fateful "yes".

All the history and millennial life of the island best describes the oldest settlement, Škrip. Prehistorical ramparts, numerous archaeological finds, sarcophagi and reliefs and medieval graves make it one of the most significant archaelogical sites in Croatia.

The Museum of Olive oil presents the history of olive growing on the island as well as the entire traditional olive oil production process, all the traditional tools used for transport, production and storage of olive oil. After an interesting and instructive presentation you will be able to shrug your sleeves and try to get few drops of this green gold. There is also a taster in the museum and after hard work we will enjoy island delicacies such as olive pate, jams, cheese, domestic olive oil and wine.
