The flagship of the island is Zlatni rat in Bol, definitely one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire Adriatic.

The old Romans used this high quality stone to build cities, palaces, temples, amphitheatres, and graves all over Dalmatia.

During the summer months there are varioius folk festivals and other cultural events. Inhabitants of Brac all gather in a procession celebrating St. Vid on Vidova Gora.
