Picture of island Brač


BRAČ, the largest island of the central Dalmatian group of
islands, the third largest among the Adriatic islands;
area 394.57 sq km; population 13,824.

It is separated from the mainland by the Brač Channel,
from the island of Solta by the so-called Splitska Vrata
(Split Gate) and from the island of Hvar by the Hvar
Channel. The highest peak of the island,
Vidova Gora (Vitus' Mount) (778 m), is also the highest
peak of all Croatian islands.

The limestone part of the coast is rocky and steep,
while the rest is rather low and sandy (on the southern
side from Farska to Bol, and on the northern side from
Sutivan to Supetar). The island landscape is dominated by
a karst limestone relief, with numerous gullies, crevices,
cavities, round valleys and coves.
