The Story of Brac

The Island of Brac was settled in the Younger Stone Age and during the centuries changed many sovereigns. We reccomend you to visit some interesting sites:

- Kopacina Cave - provides insight into the prehistory of the island of Brac. It is situated near Donji Humac village, some 20 minutes walk from the village. 12 meters long cave gives us traces of prehistoric man on the island. At that location, thousands bones of wild animals as well as knives, arrows and drills that belonged to paleolitic and mesolithic periods were found. Bronze age ceramic fragments were also found.

- Village Skrip - In this village, you will find testimony of intertwined cultures and ethnic groups of Brac - there are Illyrian cairns built in Greek style (today part of the Museum of the Island). During the centuries fortification function had been forgotten, and over them was built magnificent Roman mausoleum (3rd c). Many centuries after that, a Croatian fort with loop-holes near the top was built, which today houses the Island's collection of its resistance history.

- Lovrecina is archeological site near Postira. It is a site with the remains of Roman estate and also early Christian discoveries. Popular sandy beach is just a few meters away.

- Hermitage of Blaca is an unique monument on Croatian coast. It was a hermitage of Glagolitic Order (Glagoljica - Croatian ancient alphabet), raised on the steep cliff - today it is also a Museum.

- Zmajeva spilja (The Dragon's Cave) is located near village of Murvica, 7 kilometers from Bol. It is called Dragon's Cave because of the relief of Dragon in it.
