Visit Milna

Milna was founded in the 17th century and developed around the Cerinić kaštil fortress. This noble family from Nerežišća chose the Milna inlet to build their fort and a church. During this period the settlement of Milna grew around the church and in 1783 a new baroque parish church was built – Our Lady of Annunciation. Another unique example of cultural heritage are the remains of the Gothic church in the Osibova bay. An interesting fact about Milna, during the Napoleon wars, in 1820, the Russian fleet installed its naval base here...

Mrduja is an island, stationed halfway between the island of Brač and Šolta, valiantly guarding the Strait of Split. Once a year, these couple of hundred square meters of rock covered whit macchia shrub and cypress trees and adorned with a fort, Renaissance-Baroque church and lighthouse, become the object of intense dispute between the inhabitants of Brač and Šolta, especially those from Milna and Stomorska.

Tugging of Mrduja - Brač-Šolta

One this day, the people of Milna and Stomorska, literally tie their boats to each side of Mrduja and start tugging. In this satirical tug of war they each try to pull the little island to their respective side and claim it as their territory. The „war“ ends when a winner is proclaimed and awarded ownersship over Mrduja for a year. The Tugging of Mrduja embodies the irony and the self-deprecating humor of the islanders. It s a metaphor about the past and a lesson for the future.

Tugging of Mrduja - Brač-Šolta

Kalaton is an original sports event that takes place at the beginning of August, each year in Milna. Its name is a combination of two words – marathon and kala, the latter being the Dalmatian word for small, stone-paved streets, typical of Dalmatian towns and villages.
