Very interesting monastery with interesting history. After the 20min walk you can have a glass of domestic wine or some other soft drink at monastery, while waiting for the tour of the interior on your language that are taking place every 30min. After if you want, you can walk another 2,5km to the beach and have a swim. After you... More

Lot of walking but it's worth it. Choose a cloudy day and bring a lot of water with you. 2 km walking.

An absolute must visit whilst on Brač... Utterly worth the steep 2.5km trail to get there. Fascinating history and an amazing place to have been built so far from anywhere. Make sure to take plenty of water and good walking shoes. To get to the walking trail you need to follow signs for Vidora gora you will then start to... More

In the middle of island there is special place where priests from Bosnia established small monastery. You can reach it through Vidova Gora by car and then on foot or from Bol by boat and then by foot. Check on the internet for the historical details. I would recommend it to all interested in history and nature and relaxation.

This is a perfect option for a half day trip for you, your family or any group that you are part off :) We used the "walking" option, which takes you about 30-40 mins (do not forget to pack some sport shoes) one way - on the way there it's mostly downhill so be prepared for some up-hill walking on...

The monastery is beautiful inside out. The history that is told in that monastery amazed me. The most amazing thing was how they thought about everything and organized everything perfectly.

The monastery is not only beautiful outside but also has an amazing stories built within the walls. To get there we hiked half an hour from Blaca bay, be warned it's not the easiest walk especially during the summer heat. Take plenty of water, good spirits and be prepared to be amazed.

We hiked down as a family from the car park at the top of the mountain (accessed by a 7km gravel track). It's a substantial walk but two of us did it in sandals. Make sure to take plenty of water, as there isn't any available when you arrive. The monastery was really interesting and there is an English tour... More
