Zlatni rat beach, the most beautiful beach in the Mediterranean, and certainly one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, is the most common postcard that can be seen from Croatia. The special shape of the beach makes it a unique symbol of Brac, Croatia and the entire Mediterranean. It is also special in that under the influence of different winds and sea currents it changes its shape by moving the tip according to these phenomena. This beach has a large number of epithets and recognitions, and we bring you the last one, from February 2022, transmitted by Slobodna Dalmacija:
... There's no need to hop on distant, transatlantic flights to dip your feet in soft white sand and crystal clear sea, writes the prestigious and highly read conde nast traveller magazine.
Europe has thousands of miles of beautiful seashore and postcard-like places to reach from the UK on flights of just a few hours. They bring a proposal for the most beautiful European beaches that are worth a visit, and one from Croatia was on the list. It is the famous Golden War in Bol on the island of Brac.
Zlatni rat is said to be a mandatory station on every cruise on the Adriatic islands, and that aerial view of it is one of the recognizable motifs of the whole country.
"Located on the sunny coast of the island of Brac, this beach in the form of a tongue changes direction depending on the wind that blows, and the most beautiful view of it is from the air, so climb the nearby Vidova Gora. The location is great for families because of the shade of pine trees, and is ideal for sailing along the smooth, pebble coastline," the magazine wrote...
Apart from its beautiful beaches, Brac is perhaps best known for its Brac stone and the art of stone carving.
Brac stone adorns many world-famous buildings such as the Diocletian's Palace in Split, the White House in Washington, the Parliament in Vienna and Budapest, as well as the Church in Milna on the island of Brac, which is shown in the photo.
Brac is also the largest Dalmatian island and is the backdrop of rich history and exceptional natural beauties and phenomena.
Desert Blaca is located on the south side of the island of Brac, between the towns of Bol and Milna. It was founded in the 16th century by Glagolitic priests of Poljica who come here fleeing the Ottoman army. Escaped priests found their shelter in a stone-walled cave.
As the Desert is built from stones from a nearby quarry, over the centuries of existence it has blended perfectly with the surroundings.
On the steep stone slopes of Vidova Gora, near murvice near Bol, lies the Dragon's or Draconi's Cave. It is once a shepherd's trail, and today a tourist trail. The Dragon's Cave is only twenty meters long, but it preserves numerous traces of The Glagolitic Glagolitics of Poljica, which are in the middle of the 17th century. defected to these steep southern slopes of the island of Brac to lead a religious life in the cave.
Today in the cave are also the remains of the walls of the chapel and the dwelling of the hermits who lived there. In the living rock of the cave is carved the figure of the dragon after which the cave got its name, and besides it there are other carved reliefs.
The island of Brac is rich in autochthonous grape varieties, and the tradition of Brac winemaking is extremely long. The most famous wine of this island is the burgundy plavac, which you can taste in the traditional surroundings of stone houses in Nerežišće, in the wine cellar of the Senjković family in Dracevica or in the cellar of winemaker Baković in Murvica. The winery "Jako Vino" in Bol was built in 1903 and operates in the area of the First Dalmatian Wine Cooperative.
The island of Brac is one of the symbols of olive growing in Croatia and it is estimated that about one million olive trees grow on it, about half of which are cultivated. Olive trees and olive groves are an unavoidable part of the landscape of Dalmatia, and the olive paths of the island of Brac begin in mirca.
Two indispensable delicacies of Dalmatia. What will always honor you with a good host on Brac, and in the rest of Dalmatia, if he appreciates you and loves you is certainly Dalmatian prosciutto and lamb, most often from a spit. Dalmatian prosciutto is a delicacy that has been made in taverns for centuries and whose main ingredient is salt from the Adriatic Sea and wood smoke.
Dalmatian prosciutto is protected by geographical origin due to the specific method of production, and primarily because of smoking, which is a specific way of preserving. It is almost always combined with homemade cheese, whether cow's or goat's and served with olives.
Many Dalmatians, as well as their guests will say that this is the best appetizer in the world. And after the appetizers usually goes the main course, which is on Brac lamb on a spit. This is an almost ancient dish that requires an impeccable piece of meat, a lamb that fed on aromatic island grasses.
The whole lamb is roasted on a spit, on a dosed fire, for about three hours and is seasoned only and exclusively with large Adriatic salt. The ideal serving of this dish is accompanied by pole potatoes, young capsicum and bread under the honeycomb.
