Dalmatian Winter 101: How People of Brač Island Remove Snow (Video)

When you’re not used to snow, you make do with what you have. Such is the story on the island of Brač.

As most of you reading already know, Croatia (and most of Europe, for that matter) was hit by crippling cold weather below 0 degrees Celsius across the country earlier this week. These freezing temperatures, therefore, resulted in the first real ‘snow’ in the Dalmatian region since 2012.

As you can imagine, the snow, though it mostly melted just 24 hours after it fell, was met with a social media frenzy – and coming from Southern California where these white flakes are found only when you drive to the mountains in the winter, this is something I can understand.

One thing that must be considered in places that aren’t used to snowfall, however, is exactly how one must deal with said weather, and the impact it may have on everyday lives. For example, how do you go about removing the snow? 

Thanks to the Šibenik Meteo Facebook page who covered Dalmatia’s weird winter weather through a series of photos and videos, we have just the answer. 

To brighten up your day, here’s a look at how the people of Brač island improvised in the absence of a snow removal vehicle. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, the winter service removal on the island of Brač.
