This island of stone, sea and sunshine is the largest in central Dalmatia. Brac Island has craggy shores and brown rocks, but also boasts wonderful beaches, such as Zlatni Rat (Golden Tongue), a spectacular jewel of nature.
The limestone karst and scrub alternate with fertile fields in the interior and pine woods on the heights.
Villages scattered along the coast and in the interior of Brac Island are like stone monuments, guarding the rich heritage of the past centuries.
Brac Island has had many rulers during its history, but its spirit remains unchanged and is best expressed in its most enduring product – the famous Brač stone. Some of that spirit has been incorporated in historical buildings, such as Diocletian's Palace in Split, and more modern edifices, such asThe White House in Washington.
From year to year the number of visitors to Brac Island increases, particularly since the island airport was built, and they all find it hard to resist the peculiar charm of this island, which has so much to offer.
