If you have just labeled this page as a potential copyright issue, please follow the instructions for filing at the bottom of the box.
The previous content of this page or section has been identified as posing a potential copyright issue, as a copy or modification of the text from the source(s) below, and is now listed on Wikipedia:Copyright problems (listing):
Unless the copyright status of the text on this page is clarified, the problematic text or the entire page may be deleted one week after the time of its listing.
Temporarily, the original posting is still accessible for viewing in the page history.
To confirm your permission, you can either display a notice to this effect at the site of original publication or send an e-mail from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en at wikimedia dot org or a postal letter to the Wikimedia Foundation. These messages must explicitly permit use under CC-BY-SA and the GFDL. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
Note that articles on Wikipedia must be written from a neutral point of view and must be verifiable in published third-party sources; consider whether, copyright issues aside, your text is appropriate for inclusion in Wikipedia.
To demonstrate that this text is in the public domain, or is already under a license suitable for Wikipedia, click "Show".
Simply modifying copyrighted text is not sufficient to avoid copyright infringement—if the original copyright violation cannot be cleanly removed or the article reverted to a prior version, it is best to write the article from scratch. (See Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing.)
For license compliance, any content used from the original article must be properly attributed; if you use content from the original, please leave a note at the top of your rewrite saying as much. You may duplicate non-infringing text that you had contributed yourself.
It is always a good idea, if rewriting, to identify the point where the copyrighted content was imported to Wikipedia and to check to make sure that the contributor did not add content imported from other sources. When closing investigations, clerks and administrators may find other copyright problems than the one identified. If this material is in the proposed rewrite and cannot be easily removed, the rewrite may not be usable.
Four kilometres south-west from the town of Smokvica, on the south of the island of Korčula, there is the locality of Brna, situated in the very beautiful Bay of Brna. The peninsula Mali Zaglav, separates the Bay of Brna from the Bay of Istruga on the west side, whereas on the south-east direction, towards the village of Zavalatica, there are numerous small beaches with a crystal blue sea, surrounded by evergreen forests.
Brna used to be a non-urbanized bay with only couple of small houses used by local fishermen, where people from Smokvica would go to overnight before long fishing days. Brna developed in the 19th century when, during Austro-Hungarian Empire, a pier was built to be used as a port for the village of Smokvica for export of local wine. Since early 1970s, Brna has become a place where people from Smokvica built their summer houses close to the sea. Since then, Brna has slowly become a village of its own, with rows of detached houses, and flats and apartments for rental to tourists and visitors.
As Brna is a very deep bay, it is popular with sailors as their overnight anchorage spot, as it is well sheltered from dangerous winds. At the shallow part of the bay there is a small pebble beach called "Zal", next to which are couple of large and old pine trees with huge branches that provide a comfortable shade on a hot summer's day. Brna has two main jetties: the larger one called "Veliki Mol" and smaller one called "Mali Mol" (meaning Large and Small Dock). These jetties are used for mooring of larger vessels, while smaller boats moor all around the bay.
There are few cafes and restaurants in Brna that serve fresh food and local wine. To the northwest is Bay of Istruga, with a popular sandy beach known for its therapeuticmud.
It takes about 1/2 hrs drive from the town of Korcula to Brna. There is also a regular bus service from Korcula and Vela Luka that passes through Smokvica.
Brna is situated on a sheltered bay that opens to the south-west.
