Vidova gora (forest)
Declared a significant landscape in 1973 Vidova gora stretches across almost two thousand acres of land, and belongs to three municipalities on the island: Bol, Nerežišći and Postire. It is the highest peak on the island of Brač and all the Adriatic islands. It is covered by a forest of indigenous Dalmatian black pine and is a unique ecosystem on the central Dalmatian islands of high landscape value.
Because of its considerable altitude and distance from the sea it has a colder climate than most of the Dalmatian islands. It has preserved its authentic look and unspoiled nature, enhanced also by the local population who still engage in cattle breeding the old way, giving a special charm to the idyllic feel of this unique, natural oasis of peace. From the top of Vidova gora there is a beautiful view of the tourist town of Bol and its famous beach Zlatni Rat.
