Island Brac - Town of Bol

" Fascinated, enigmatic and irresistible "

The first inhabitants of the island were the Illyrians, whose numerous hillforts and mounds scattered throughout the island testify to their presence. It is believed that it owes its name to the noble animal deer (Illyrian Brentista, Greek Elaphusa) which gave it its name.

Thanks to the white stone, Brac has been popular since antiquity, Brač stone that was used to build many famous buildings in the world.

The largest central Dalmatian island and the third largest island in the Adriatic, bordered by magical bays and covered with pine and cypress forests located at the foot of Vidova Gora, which is the highest peak of the island and the highest peak of all Adriatic islands (778 m).

In Pučišća, a place in the northeast of the island of Brač, there is the only stonemason school in Croatia. Numerous stone sculptures are located around the area, so it looks like you are in a museum.
On the south side of the island of Brac is Bol, a medal of untouched nature, which is the oldest town on the coast of Brac.

And there is the world-famous beach Zlatni rat - a beach that moves its cape to one side, now to the other - playing an unusual game with wind and waves. The crown of Brač is over half a kilometre long, and it is forested in the middle. The unavoidable symbol of the island of Brač is the olive tree, from the 16th to the 19th century Brač became an olive-growing superpower, and the traditional way of olive growing is today passed down from generation to generation. So when you visit this island, be sure to bring a bottle of olive oil with you.
