Why Brac Island, Croatia?

Brač is the largest Dalmatian island, with 394 km2 of land area, 12 km wide and about 40 km long. Like a huge ship, the island of Brač is a picturesque archipelago between the islands of Hvar and the city of Split. The pointy top of the island of Brač is the 780 m high Vidova gora Hill, the highest peak on Croatia’s Adriatic islands.  Beautiful views of the sunlit sea extend from the top of Vidova gora.  The unpredictable play of light creates fascinating sights such as idyllic plains dotted with sheep herds. The island of Brač is excellent for relaxation, health, sleeping, and dreaming.

Bol and Brač have a typical Mediterranean climate – characterized by long, humid and dry summers and short, wet winters.  During summer, the winds are not cold and the afternoon mistral (northwesterly wind) that blows from the sea in addition to the evening burin (north-northeastern wind) from the Brač hills both offer pleasant refreshment.

The island is Rich with Cultural Heritage.  The civilization of Brač is marked by a centennial tradition that bears testimony to Roman agriculture and Renaissance architecture inspired by the island’s landscape and aesthetics. You will experience something authentic when arriving in the south of the country, visiting an island that is infused with the scents of Mediterranean vegetation and rich cultural heritage.

Ever since ancient times, the stone has been dug out of Brač quarries and used to build notable buildings, the most famous one being Diocletian’s Palace in Split.

During their reign on the island, the Romans built farmhouses, presses for grapes and olives, ponds (watering-places for animals) and quays. Notable Roman remains to include two large Roman mausoleums and many scattered pre-Christian and Early Christian sarcophagi.
