Surfing in the canal in front of the Golden cape in Bol; paragliding from Vidova gora; hunting in the upper parts of the island; hiking trips to caves and desert Blaca; walk from Splitska to the ancient quarries under Škrip with the view on great maintained olive groves; sailing bay to bay; swimming at the beaches of finest sand and gravel; holiday in excellent apartments and houses for rent, safe anchorage in one of the deep bays (Milna, Bobovišća, Pučišća); photographing the dramatic karst phenomena in all parts of the island; relaxing with famous Brač cheese, lamb and fish, along with brandy and Bolski plavac (famous Brač wine) in one of the taverns, or in the silence of some of the shepherds' dwellings in the interior of the island - all of which individually and together in our memory create an indelible image that we carry from the island of Brač. Brač is the largest island in Dalmatia and the third largest island in the Adriatic Sea.
To the west we have island of Šolta separatet by Split "gates", and to the south an island of Hvar separated by the Hvar Channel. The highest peak is Vidova gora(hill), which is the highest peak of all Adriatic islands. The climate of the island is determined by its position and is characterized by all the characteristics of Mediterranean climate: hot and dry summers and short mild winters. Island of Brač is the sunniest Adriatic area with about 2700 sunny hours per year, somewhere between Split and Hvar. The average winter temperature is 9 ° C and summer 25 ° C. Summer breeze blows almost every day, known as the maestral(mistral). The origin of the name of the island of Brač is not fully established in science. It originates from the Illyrian brentos - deer. According to the last census in 2001. Brač has 13,012 inhabitants. Island of Brač has always been the most common in animal husbandry, cultivation of vines and olive trees and the stone carving. Stone from the Brač was used to build many famous buildings in the world such as, for example, the Diocletian Palace in Split and the lobby of the United Nations. Eventually claims emerged that it was used for the construction of the White House in Washington.
