Geocache Description:

That is the mountain Hum (377 meters altitude above sea-level). During the time of the Austro-Hungarian ruler ship a fortress called «fortezza» was built on top of the mountain and there are still traces of the stay of different armies.The stay on the mountain Hum offers the best sight on the unique panorama of the big bay and the town of Vela Luka. In the cloudless weather you can see even Italian coast from there.

Famous tourist town VELA LUKA with ferry port (Split, Hvar,Uble)located at coast of bay Vela Luka at west part of island. It is the biggest village at island. The chief occupations are agriculture; grow vineyard, olive trees and fruits, processing of fishes, food industry, buildings of ships and tourism. Harbor has international border. Town offer different kind of accommodation and the equipment for sport activations and recreations. Modern spa centre Kalos for rehabilitation is located by bay Kale (with healthy mud). Famous place for daily trip is island Osjak with protective wooden park.In surrounding is the cave of Vela Spilja, archeological place from neolith epoch, but Vela Luka is young town. Coast part of town was damaged by tsunami in year 1978. Church of St. Ivan from 15th century and monastery are located on the east from town near Gradina.
