Brač is famous for two things: its radiant white stone, from which Diocletian’s Palace in Split and the White House in Washington, DC are made, and Zlatni Rat, the long pebbly beach at Bol.
Among the most interesting events on the island is “Vanka Regule” festival (No Rules) held at the end of July in Sutivan
Archaeological findings date the existence of human communities on the island back to the palaeolithic.
Signs of Roman habitation can be found all over the islands, but they usually remain single Roman villas & cisterns.
In 1941 Italian forces occupied the island. In the mountainous regions of the island, native rebels fought a quite effective guerrilla war, but the occupiers answered harshly with arrests and executions.
Buses on the island are infrequent and slow.
Roads are good and safe; however a road going down to Bol is windy, steep, and full of serpentine
The shape of the Zlatni Rat beach changes with the wind and water current, which makes it one of the most unique in Croatia.
Pure white limestone from island of Brac was used to build the White House in Washington.
