Located where Central and Southeast Europe meet on the shores of the Adriatic Sea is the beautiful country of Croatia. With its numerous peaceful islands, fairytale-like waterfalls, and some of the best beaches in Europe, Croatia has long been a very popular destination with visitors from near and far.

While many of these visitors rightly put the mainland coastal towns like Split on their Croatia itinerary, and perhaps an island off of the Dalmatian Coast like Hvar, far fewer choose to make the trip to the island of Brač. The largest Croatian island in the area, Brač Island is just a 50-minute car ferry from the harbor of Split and can be a multi-day destination or a wonderful day trip from the mainland city.

The history of this old town dates back hundreds of years. It is believed that this settlement was nearly abandoned until the Middle Ages when a breath of new life came through and revived the area because of its nautical location. When you tour the town now, however, what you will mostly find is architecture and development that began in the 16th Century.
