Brac Island’s legacy
Brac is famous for two things, the first being its quarries which produce a white stone that was used to build the Diocletian’s Palace in Split and also the White House in Washington DC! The other is Zlatni Rat in Bol on the south coast of the island which is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Adriatic and is often used in posters promoting Croatia.
