Supetar


Supetar

Supetar (italian San Pietro della Brazza) is a Croatian town, the biggest settlement of Croatian island Brac.

It is the seaside town even the local sea is not as clean as in other parts of the island – due to the heavy ship transportation (14 farriers run here daily (Hrvat, Marjan, Biokovo, Tin Uejvič) to Split).

The name in the local archaic language means Saint Peter.

Zlatni rat - Bol


Zlatý rat - Bol

Zlatni rat - Bol. Stone beach in a shape of a horn, protrudes from the island in a length of several hundred metres sloping down sharply into the sea.

Gravel is drifted by the sea currents and waves so the beach always changes its shape and slope – sometimes it is a horn curved right, sometimes it is curved left.

The promontory was formed by the removal of the material from the huge stone gorge which runs from the mountains above the promontory.
