January 14, 2020 – Via Brattia, the new 135 km long hiking trail around the island of Brac, will connect almost the entire island. This excellent new tourist product will undoubtedly be the new trump card of Brac tourism.
The hiking trail will connect the 12 most attractive historical sites and most of the picturesque locations on the largest Central Dalmatian island. Via Brattia will be a challenge for recreationists and hikers, as well as for real adventurers in search of a new experience.
The trail will pass through the centers of Supetar, Mirac, Sutivan, Bobovisca na moru, Lozisce, Milna, Murvice, Bol, Sumartin, Povalje, Pucisca, Postir, Skrip, and along the parish churches, reaching some of the most beautiful bays on Brac, like Farska, Rasotica, Lovrecina, and Smrka. The trail is expected to be active from spring 2020.
Via Brattia is a project of all the tourist boards on the island of Brac together with the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board. Recall, Brac boasts seven tourist boards that have not yet cooperated until now. The synergy through this project is commendable.
“With the support of all local self-government units on the island of Brac and the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board, this trail around Brac is a joint project of all the tourist boards on our island and the municipalities of Pucisca and Nerezisca. The maps are nearly finished, and the markings have been taken over by the Mountaineering Association Profunda. After the areas are marked and the maps are printed, Brac will finally receive a beautiful hiking and tourist trail they have long dreamed of. Movement, learning and sustainability are new tourism trends that enrich travelers with invaluable experience, and the sun and the sea are just a bonus in this story,” said Ivan Cvitanic, director of the Supetar Tourist Board, where Via Brattia begins and ends.
