The ancient village Podstrana is embedded beneath the hill, sheltered from the wind and protected by Saint Fabian, after whom is named the church on the top of the hill.
At distance of 15 km from town Split
, 2,5 km from the sea, following serpentine road you will climb up to a place where you will think that the time has stopped for at least 100 years. At approximately 6 minutes drive from the main road, you will have a breathtaking view of sea, islands, town Split
and fishing village Stobreč.
It is ethno village, one of few conserverd, with almost all stone houses and ruins under strict protection and marked as historical and cultural heritage. Therefore, on this territory it is strictly forbidden to build houses and where there’s a construction area, it is required a minimum of 1 500 m2 land area and house cannot be higher than 6 m.
Another feature is a new local road that is being built from Trogir
to Omiš and it will be at distance of approximately 500 m from the village which will enable inhabitants an easier access to Split airport etc.
Podstrana is one of rare jewels where a harmony between ancient and new will be achieved thanks to local planning.
Authentic nature and abundance of spring water givee the village a special charm .
