Drasnice Beach

DRASNICE, a village in the Makarska littoral, 3 km southeast of Podgora. The coastal belt is partly covered by pine forests and small pebble beaches stretch along the coast. Chief occupations include farming, viticulture, olive growing (in the flysh Drasnice field) and fishing. Yachts and boats may dock along the 25-m long pier. The village lies on the main road (M2, E65). Close to the sea is the cemetery with mediaeval tombstones, as well as a Baroque church from 1745 (destroyed in an earthquake in 1794; restored and again demolished in 1961). The church floor features mediaeval tombstones. Above the village is the Gothic church of St. Stephen, housing a Roman inscription from the 2nd century and an inscription from 1446 mentioning Duke Stephen.
