Milna is one of those typical Mediterranean fishing villages they don't make anymore. Lying on the west coast of Brac Island and 20km southwest of Supetar, the harbour of Milna is drop-dead gorgeous as it digs into the island like a spoon. To each side of the harbour stretch sand and pebble beaches including the cove of Vlaska.

What to See

Few new buildings mar Milna's urban landscape. The civic buildings and fishermen's houses on the coast are connected by footpaths to the surrounding farms, vineyards and olive groves.

As a matter of architectural interest, note the baroque facade of the parish church built in 1783. The altar paintings include an "Annunciation" that dates from the beginning of the 18th century.

As a matter of historical interest, note that the Russian fleet harboured its fleet in Milna during the Napoleonic wars. In 1806, there was a major naval battle in the waters of Milna between the Russians and the French.
