General presentationGeneral information
Bobovišća Na Moru (Bobovišća-on-the-sea) is a small village and a port located on the island of Brač in Croatia. Bobovišća Na Moru developed when the communities of the interior, Bobovišća and Ložišća, became more important and needed an outlet towards the sea.

Bobovišća Na Moru is part of the commune of Milna in the county of Split-Dalmatia.

This statue was carried out by the sculptor Mirko Ostoja.

Valdemar Nazor, born in Postira, passed its childhood and its youth in this port. The house of the Nazor family, which carries from now on the commemorative plaque to her memory, is on the northern side of the port.

After the Second World War, Vladimir Nazor turned over to the port of his youth, Bobovišća-on-MER, and made build, above the family house, a commemorative tower as well as a false acropolis with three columns connected by a lintel, like an evocation of his three sisters and their common voyages in Greece.

Valdemar Nazor was deeply inspired by the childhood which it passed here, by peace, the mysticism and the characters of the island of Brač such as the Loda shepherd.

“I wish to sit down again in the old house, close to my brother and my sisters, and to read a book with the gleam of the candle posed on the table, while the evening of autumn obscures all on the port. And I wish, father, to listen to the song of the cicadas in the afternoon of summer while the guy of the village go down to the sea, avid to fight and to sing… And I wish, and more still, to again hear the sound of the stone under the chisel of the mason, because then it is the true voice of our split… but, of return on the island, only one remains in this small wild split; the others, perhaps, the winds and the waves tore off them with me and returned to the split. ”

Vladimir Nazor, Povratak U luku (Return to the port), 1923

The Gligo Manor
On the southern part of the port the manor of summer strengthened of the Marinčević-Gligo family is; it is a building baroque of the 18th century.
