Milna

Famed as the birth place of Goran Ivanisavic (Wimbledon Champion in 2001) and for being the capital of the Russian protectorate of Brac, a short-lived administration of the island during the Napeolonic Wars (1800-1814) the small town of Milna forms the main focus for sailors on the western shore of the Brac and located just to the north of the Splitska Vrata. where it provides a useful stopping off spot for yachts traversing that busy passage. There you will find the ACI Marina but also a good private site, Marina Vlaska and the island’s main marine fuel retailer (by the fish canning factory).


This is a bustling little fishing village with a busy harbour dominated at its entrance by a fish canning factory and traditional boat yard and further in by the large ACI marina facility (which includes the town wall). It is a small place but it has several good restaurants and bars (including the Zuti macak located next to the ACI reception.) It also has all the major services you would expect of a small town including a post office, several cash machines and two small supermarkets along with other shops.




While there is little in the way of attractions, there is a nice area of older streets in the vicinity of the 18th Century baroque Church of Our Lady of the Ascension including one older house known as the Anglescina named from a legend that has it to have been constructed by an English knight of the crusades, who stopped in the town and settled here. Walking south from the town you can reach the delightful bay and anchorage of Lucice after about 2 km.
