Mljet - Pučišća (Brač)

Our voyage will continue towards Pučišća with refreshing swim stops on our way and lunch. Pučišća is the biggest village on the island of Brač an entirely different experience. Nowhere in the system of towns and villages in Damatia does terrain play such a compelling role as in Pučišća with its spectacular irregularity of the steep-sided natural harbour, its authentic Mediterranean architecture and rustic ambience; the fjordlike inlet meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills to join those quiet and beautiful waters. Pučišća Quarry was exploited in the Antiquity; the reopening of the quarry took place in 1455, unused since Roman times. It was from this quarry that stone was excavated to build limestone columns of the White House in Washington DC, The Parliament house in Vienna and many other famous buildings all over the world. The only Stone masonry school in Croatia is located in Pučišća where students carve sculptures from Brač limestone with traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries. We will spend night in this very quiet small town. Nightfall unifies the diverse features of Pučišća that have intrigued us by daylight. Overnight in Pučišća at Brač Island. (B, L)

Pučišća (Brač) - Omiš - Split

After breakfast we cruise across the Brač channel to Omiš, ancient town with city walls, fortresses and stone churches located at the delta of Cetina River with its wonderful beaches.
