Vidova gora Brac island
A must visit on Island of Brac - Vidova Gora ( Vidova mountain), the highest mountain of all Adriatic islands (778 m above the sea level).
Vidova gora is not only a peak with its beautiful view - in 2009 the Educational Track „Vidova Gora“ was renovated and opened to guide walkers and mountain bikers through the most atractive parts of the road and educate them about the unique destination – Landscape protected by law. Vidova gora is covered by Dalmatian black pine (Pinus nigra). Mount Vidova gora has preserved its indigenous appearance and untouched nature, and around it the local inhabitants still engage in cattle-breeding in an old-fashioned way. That contributes to nature preservation and gives a special charm to the idyllic atmosphere of this timeless oasis of peace and bird's song.
It was named after the small church of St. Vid, which stand at the top of the hill.
The church was built in the 13th or 14 century. About Vidova gora were knitted a number of fantastic stories, mostly of Slavic origin. Long before the arrival of the Slavs to the Adriatic, atVidova Gora the Illyrian people have had forts. The remains of these walls may still be seen at some places.
