Well-connected to Split by ferry and catamaran services, the island of Brač makes for the perfect island escape. It can be easily visited as a day trip from Split, but it is recommended to stay a few nights in order to uncover the true gifts the island has to offer. With much of the attention in recent years focusing on Hvar, Brač has been left to quietly develop as a solid, more sustainable tourist

destination. Despite its proximity to the mainland, the slow pace of island life pervades the island’s main attractions from the Blaca Monastery to the Dragon’s cave to the Pučišća stone masonry school.
