DISCOVER

Discover everything Milna has to offer

Nautical center
Milna is the nautical center of Brač with a harbor and well- equipped marinas. Due to the mild Mediterranean climate, extremely clean sea and secluded position that protects it from the winds, it is an unavoidable haven for sailors from May to October.
Dry stone walls and “bunje”
The poor land of Brač is rich in stones, so in order to make it fertile the local people in the past took stones out of the ground and stacked them around. This is how dry stone walls and “bunje” – charming stone houses that served for break from physical work or as a tool storage, were created
Beaches and bays
Find time to relax in beautiful sheltered coves with crystal clear sea. There are a number of pebbly coves at your disposal, some of which have been maintained as bathing areas, and some still preserve the charm of untouched nature. Go for a swim in Osibova, Lučica, Maslinova bays…
Church of Our Lady of the Annunciation
The church was built in Baroque style in 1783 by Ignacije Macanović from Trogir with help from the builders from Brač. The church is adorned with an ornate façade and stone steps leading up to the church. The tall stone bell tower is older than the church itself and was built by Trifun Bokanić in the 16th century. Those passionate about art will be interested in viewing numerous sacred works of art and paintings, especially the painting of the Annunciation with the young Gabriel and the figure of Mary, which is in fact a work of the Venetian painter Gaspare Diziani from the 18th century. Today, the church is a protected cultural asset
Way of the Cross Milna – Osibova
A beautiful two kilometres long path leading from Milna to the Osibova Bay, is the traditional path where the Way of the Cross is held. On this path 14 stone chapels of the Stations of the Cross were built, thanks to the Skarneo family who had them built at the end of the 18th century. In Osibova, among the quieter and more beautiful bays on the island of Brač, there is also a small church of St. Joseph and a small church of St. John the Baptist, both often visited by believers

The fight for the islet

Residents of Brač and Šolta have been arguing for years over the ownership of the islet Mrduja, which is located in the channel between the two islands. This gave rise to one of the most significant summer events – The Mrduja Tug of War, in which the residents of Šolta and Brač, every year in July, fight for the supremacy over the islet by pulling on the ropes
