CROATIA ISLANDS

Brac Island in Croatia

Of all the 1100 islands of Croatia, the island of Brac is the highest, and one of the largest. The tallest peak on Mount St. Vid, Vidova Gora, is 779 meters high, which distinguishes it as the highest island point in the Adriatic. The islands population of roughly 13,000 is broken up into numerous little towns throughout the island. The largest of those towns is Supetar, with 3500 inhabitants, which can be reached from the mainland via a 45 minute ferry ride from Split.

The Romans conquered this island in 9 A.D. and remnants of Roman achitechure and culture can still be found all over the island.

Brac has quarries that are prolific in a precious white stone used in many expensive and historic structures; such as, the White House in the United States. The most significant local agricultural products are wine, olives and goat cheese. The most distinctive feature of the island is a famous V shaped beach, called Zlatni Rat, that stretches out some 500 feet into the sea like a pointed peninsula or pier.
