Weekend on Brač Island, Day 3: Sheep Cheese, Traditional Vitalac and Coffee at Bolero

18.12.2014.

Frank G.'s last day spent on Brač makes a perfect example of what Croatian lifestyle is really like, a chilled back relaxing day "wasted" on drinking coffee along with delicious food tasting and exploring cultural sites and monuments. If you ask us, this sounds like the ideal hedonistic experience.
After breakfast, we had a coffee at Bolero, chill out place at the Bol’s seafront promenade, just below our hotel. Then we packed our bags, settled our bill, and hit the road again. This time direction Supetar. It made more sense to cross over to Split as we were on our way to Istria. I forget to tell you that the road connecting Bol with the rest of the island offers stunning views. Unfortunately, places that offer the best photo points, don’t have a side stop so you cannot really stop for a photo without putting yourself and others in danger. I tried to capture few photos while driving to give you an idea of the view.


Cocktail Bar Bolero

We made three stops on our way. The first stop was in a village of Praznice where we bought some sheep cheese. I know, people say that sheep cheese isn’t the best in summer. However my family always buys cheese from the same man in Praznice, and his cheese is excellent. It’s expensive (around 400 kn for a kilo), but totally worth it. Second stop was in Nerezisca, another inland village with one curiosity – there is an old church in the village that has a 200 years old pine tree growing through the roof of its chapel. Third stop was in the village of Donji Humac to the tavern Kopacina, according to many the best place to eat on the island. Here you can taste Vitalac, a traditional Brac specialty made of lamb innards wrapped in a caul and roasted on the spit.


Blaca Hermitage

Finally, we hit the road again toward Supetar where we boarded a ferry to Split. It’s a pleasant 50 minute ride. The trajectory is interesting as you are actually not going straight across the channel. Split is located north of Brac, and the ferry actually goes parallel with the coast. You can enjoy views over the mainland on one side, and over the island of Brac and Solta on the other side, while keeping an eye at all times on the island of Ciovo ahead. Here you’ve got it, three awesome days on the island of Brac that made us experience many places, activities, food, wine, history, and people. However we did miss some of the island’s highlights this time. They include: a visit to Milna and Povlja (must-sea in our opinion), and a trip to Pustinja Blaca (Blaca Hermitage). It’s always good to leave something as a reminder that you need to revisit a place.
