After a bit complicated and time-consuming picking up the car, we finally set off. The island of Brač waits to be visited. On this day, we plan to see four towns.
Small but interesting Splitska
Our first goal is Splitska. We get there after a few minutes. There is no point in using navigation. The roads are very well marked. The navigation lead us to the pedestrian road, so we decided not to use it. It was a good move, we have not gone astray since then.
Somewhat stressed after the story with the route we enter the port. We walk on one side of the bay. I read that in one of the houses there were episodes of the Polish series “Mouth lips” recorded.
We go to the other side of the bay. I go down the stairs towards the water and take photos from there.
We sit for a moment on flat stones, and then we return to the church. Next to it there is a path that leads uphill. It looks interesting, so we enter it. At the street on the wall there are stones with holes lying – this is what the island of Brač is famous for. We admire the views from above and then we return to the car.
Postira – another seaside town
We go to Postira. I liked this place the least. Somehow I could not get good shots here. The church is not very interesting, the harbor is not very pretty, even the bay is not good for my taste and there were a lot of people there.
After the walk, we are already a little tired, so a nice break would be cooling in the water. I bathe a bit further behind the monument with three holes (visible in the picture). We rest on flat rocks and admire the clear waters of the bay.
Dol- the most beautiful village on Brač
We go to the charming village of Dol. We park at the bottom of the village near a small church. Then we follow a winding path uphill. We photograph a butterfly that can’t fly and pass nice villagers who smile and greet us. There are some resting cats that stare at us.
Views from the above are beautiful. You can see the road we came from and even the distant Postira and the Adriatic. The village of Dol is really charming and it is worth going here to see something more than just the seaside towns.
After a while we go down the same route, pass by our car and go to see the lower part of the Dol. Here we meet smiling residents too. I guess they are happy that tourists reach these even deeper corners of the island.
Walking, we notice small houses made of stones along the way.
I pose for Wojtek with roses. We go back to the car. The sun starts to set, and I want to see the village of Škrip. I forget to take a picture of the church in Dol in a rush.
Škrip – the oldest town on the Brač island
Škrip can be visited in 5 minutes. It is the oldest island town, located on a hill. You have to go, passing through the bridge, to the very end of the village. We park next to the baroque church of Saint Helena. When we get out of the car, an elderly lady walks up to us and invites us to her wine cellar in Croatian. She proposes wine and want for it, if I remember correctly, 80 kuna. We try to negotiate, but she doesn’t agree so the transaction does not take place. The woman is not happy, she looks upset and waves her hand. I think business today did not go well.
We pass the church and the old Škripu buildings. On the foundations there is a museum tower from around 1500 BC.
A few steps further the road ends and we are on the “observation deck”. From here you can see the village of Dol- previously visited by us. We take pictures using the last rays of the sun.
Brač island – where to see the sunsets
On the way back to the apartment on the Splitska-Supetar section, we stop by the road. We leave the car for a moment and go down to the sea. We sit on the rocks and admire our second sunset on the island.
