NATURAL SIGHTS

The island of Brač with its surface of 394 km2 is the most spacious Dalmatian island and the third largest in the Adriatic. The highest peak is St Vitus at the altitude of 778 m, also the highest peak of all Adriatic islands.
Island’s climate is typically Mediterranean, with long, hot and dry summers and short and mild winters. Brač is a part of the sunniest Adriatic area, with more than 2700 sunshine hours per year. The annual mean temperature is 15,5°C. A quarter of the island’s surface is covered in forest. In the littoral part dominates the maritime pine whilst on the plateau over 40 m prevail Corsican pine, oak and ash. Along the karst area of the island dominates fragrant and medical herbs – garden-sage, wormwood, mallow, immortelle, heather and thistle. Besides the beautiful landscapes along the coast and on Brač plateau, protected natural values on the island of Brač shall also be particularly emphasize:

This geomorphological monument of nature was protected in 1986. This 12 m high rock of irregular shape consists of two arches which unite thus making a natural triumphal arch. With its form and dimensions, Koloč is a completely unique phenomenon. Koloč is situated two kilometres from Nerežišća.

The Corsican pine which grows in the St Peter and Paul church’s roof in Nerežišća which dates back in 15th was protected in 1969 as a monument of nature. It is estimated that this pine is old some 150 – 200 years, but nobody knows exactly when this small pine arised in that unusual place.

Pear fruit can be found close to Selca village and was protected in 1954. It grows in an altitude of about 320 m. Tree height is 5 m whilst the crown width is 6 m. It is assumed that is more than 150 years old.

In 1970, Vidova gora was proclaimed an important landscape. With its surface of approx. 1880 ha belongs to three municipalities - Bol, Nerežišća and Postira. Its highest peak is St Vitus (778 m) that is also the highest peak of all Adriatic islands. Vidova gora hides many natural attractions of Dalmatian karst – a dense forest of the Corsican pine, rich flora and fauna as well as numerous pits and caves. Natural and cultural features of the island of Brač are presented in 14 information and education tables along the educational path “Vidova gora” at the area of significant landscape.

Blaca Valley was protected in 1986 in a category of important landscape. Covers the area from Dragovode to Blaca bay, approximately 3500 m long, with average width of 700 m and covering the surface of approx. 211,77 ha. The natural appearance of the landscape was enriched and slightly altered due to a century long human activity in traditional agriculture. As a part of protected area, the complex of Blaca Glagolitic hermitage from 16th particularly stands out.

In 1965, Zlatni rat was protected as important landscape. The surface of protected area is 12,3 ha. The promontory is 400 m long, built in a natural way using pebble that floods brought from Vidova gora. The promontory’s peak continuously changes its form and direction. Zlatni rat in Bol is one of the most famous and most beautiful beaches in the world.
