Brac yacht charter in Croatia
The largest island of the central Dalmatian group of islands in the Adriatic Sea and one of the many lovely destinations to visit while enjoying a Croatia yacht charter in the Mediterranean, is the Island of Brac. Brac yacht charter in Croatia offers rich cultural and historical heritage that goes back to pre-historic times, as well as mouth-watering gastronomy, splendid beaches and bays, crystal clear sea and friendly hospitality of the local people.

Brac's landscape features predominantly karst limestone reliefs, with many gullies, crevices, round valleys and coves. Formed mainly of limestone and dolomite, the island has been a source for construction of decorative stone works such as amphitheatres, temples, palaces and graves for centuries around the entire coast of Dalmatia.
The biggest town on the Island of Brac is Supetar. In addition to the fabulous beaches and restaurants, visitors on a Croatia yacht holiday might find it interesting to visit the parish church of Mary of the Annunciation from the 18th century, surrounded by the Leroj bell-tower and the church museum.

Church of Sv Luka is one of the nineteen early roman churches preserved on the island of Brac, constructed at the end of the 11th, beginning of the 12th century, situated above the town of Supetar.
