Milna is a reality of unique beauty and charm: the sight of palms, antique olive trees and the shadow of pines, chirping of the crickets in the summer afternoon, little wooden boats along the coast, nets and traps near the sea, locals singing a capella as the sun goes down,dinners, great wine and traditional hospitality, talks whispered deep into the night on the church staircase, early morning market, a busy ship-yard with a centuries long tradition, pires and benches along the coast, queue for newspapers and the latest gossip, the smell of baked bread and of fresh fish sold directly on the shore. Weathered sea masters set off before the first lights to reach the well kept secret fishing-grounds, saluting with a glance the chapel of St. Nicholas the Traveller, who once upon a time used to see the sailing-vessels to far-away seas.

About this location
The Dalmatia region
The island of Brac has got a long turist tradition based on it's natural beauties and warm hospitality. The cristal blue sea, amaizing number of sunny days, excelent cusine and manny attractions will do the rest. You can visit ancient villages, innumerable lavender fields, olive plantations and vineyards, walk through the enchanting stone streets.
Brac Island is the third largest island of Croatia, with an area of about 396 km; approx. 36 km long and 4 to 13km wide, with 175km of coast line. Its highest peak Vidova Gora, 778m above the sea level, is also the highest peak of all the Croatian islands.
The island enjoys more than 2,700 hours, of sunshine annually; it is one of the sunniest regions in Croatia and has the truly Mediterranean climate. The summers are long and dry, the winters mild and rainy. The wettest months are November and December, the driest July and August. The temperature only very occasionally drops below O°C (winter average temperature is 9°C; on the other hand, more than a hundred days have a temperature of more than 25°C (which is the average summer temperature), and more than fifty days above 30°C. The settlements, on the western and southern coast of the island have the hottest climate
There are 23 little places on the island with the population of about 13,000. Supetar is economic, cultural and tourist center of the island with approximately 2600 inhabitans. This is usually the first place you get to on the island, with a ferry from Split.
Curiosity: for one whole year, Milna was the island capital under the supremecy of the Russian Tsar.
Milna is a small 16th c. village located on the western part of the islandof Brac. It is famous for it's marvellous bay, the birthplace of many of the worlds' sailing captains and ships of the 18th and 19th century!
Alongside the little harbour of Bobovisca, Milna is the only settlement on Brac's western coast, 18km from Supetar. This fishing village is set at the end of the biggest harbour on Brac, sheltered from the winds and exposed to the sun. Secure as it is, it was well known to the commanders of the emperor Diokletian's ships, in the time of the building of his palace in Split. Today it hosts a modern equipped marina which attracts many famous names on their fabulous super yachts.
Unlike other places on the island, Milna has preserved to a high degree, the harmony of civic buildings and fisherman houses on the coast and the rural architecture on the hill, from where the snake-like footpaths wind down to the vineyards and olive-groves. For many, the most beautiful harbour on Brac, forks into two channels, the two sunken valleys that descend from the interior. They bring the fertile alluvium and the refreshing breeze from the Brac upper valleys during hot summer nights. Between these two channels, Zalo and Pantera, a wide, blunt cape protrudes on whose clearing round the church and the old fort, the houses are gathered together. Their stone fronts are turned to the sun creating thus a wonderful local atmosphere valuable for tis being so typical in the Mediterranean environs.
There are a number of nearby seductive islands, like Hvar and Solta that are good ideas for a day trip and ofcourse, the ancient city of Split where you can admire the emperor Diokletian's palace, the old city, shop or enjoy a great night life.
