The island of Brač
The island of Brač is not only attractive because of its world-famous beach Zlatni rat, which is worth a visit to experience swimming in the azure blue sea, but also due to the many interesting cultural and historical sights and numerous culinary delicacies. We recommend a visit to Vidova Gora, where the highest peak of all the Adriatic islands (778 m) is located, offering a fantastic view of the islands of central Dalmatia and the Biokovo mountain. A visit to Zmajeva špilja (the Dragon's cave) is also interesting, near the village of Murvica, since it contains reliefs of the monastic life of the Glagolitic priests from the 15th century.
Then there is the Blaca hermitage or solitary residence, an impressive monastery complex and astronomical observatory from the Renaissance and Baroque periods, which today houses a museum. A special feature of the island of Brač is its Stonemasonry school with the famous white Brač stone, used to build the White House in Washington and the Diocletian Palace in Split. We should also mention the Kopačina cave, dating back to the Bronze Age, which contains the oldest traces of prehistoric man on the island.
