Situated in central Dalmatia, Brač is a lovely green island in the Adriatic. It is famous for its white stone which was used up for the construction of such remarkable buildings as the Diocletian' Palace in Split, the cathedral of Šibenik and the White House in Washington. Countless Italian monuments were made from Brač marble, as well.

The oldest settlement on the island is Škrip where hardly 180 inhabitants live today. Škrip and the former seat of Brač, Nerežišće were built in the middle of the island. As the pirate attacks were lessening and tourism started to develop, these villages regressed and coastal settlements such as Supetar and Bol began growing.

Supetar is the 'capital' of Brač. The centre is the marina, the gathering place of all holidaymakers arriving from Split. The regattas of the Supetar Summer Festival take place here.

From the marina stairs lead to the Church of Annunciation. It was built in the 18th century on the remnants of the early Christian St. Peter's church. The mosaics beside the church date back to the 6th century. There is also a small museum here devoted to religius art.

Those who arrive by boat will catch sight of the cupola of the Petrinović mausoleum first. The cemetery lies on a small peninsula, in the vicinity of the beach.

Zlatni Rat

Bol is a tiny fishing village on the southern part of Brač. It has the most beautiful beach of the island, a long sand bank called Zlatni Rat (Golden cape). The centre of the village lies about 2 km from here.
