The fjord-like inlet of Pučišća meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills, joining the bay’s quiet and beautiful waters. Pučišća quarry was exploited by Romans in the antiquity, after which it was abandoned until the reopening in 1455. Stone from Pučišća quarry was used to build limestone columns of the White House in Washington DC, Vienna Parliament and many other famous buildings around the world. Pučišća is also home to the only Croatian Stonemasonry school. Its students carve sculptures from Brač limestone, applying traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries.
We’ll spend a night in this very quiet town. Enjoy the nightfall, as it unifies the distinct features of Pučišća that have intrigued us so much in daylight.

DAY 4 • TUESDAY HVAR-BIŠEVO BLUE CAVE – VIS
We’ll start our day with a morning cruise towards Island of Biševo and its Blue Cave. Originally, the entrance to Blue Cave was located below sea level, which required visitors to dive deeply in order to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. Sunbeams penetrating through the cave’s submarine opening get reflected from the white bottom floor, colouring the cave aquamarine and objects in the water silver, creating a truly stunning and magical natural phenomenon.
However, sometimes high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit. For this reason, entrance fees are paid on the spot – if we ‘all lucky enough to visit the cave! Afterwards we’ll dock in Vis and have lunch.
Vis is truly unique in comparison to other Adriatic islands. Due to its strategic location on the open sea it served as a military zone for a long time, for which reason it was untouched by the usual tourist development.
Beautiful beaches, unspoilt nature, ecological agriculture and preserved traditional architecture make up the advantages of this unique Croatian island. You will have evening free in Vis, to explore and dine in one of its family run taverns.
