Supetar, Croatia - holiday information

Supetar, Brac, Croatia – visitor information

Supetar is an island town located on the northern side of Brac connected with Split by a direct ferry line. It is the centre of the island and it got its name by the St. Peter cove in which it lies. It is distinguished by rich cultural-historic heritage, out of which we especially accentuate the remains of an early Christian mosaic and villa rustica, the Church of St. Marys Annunciation from the 18th century, sculpture of Mother Theresa (located at the entrance to the church courtyard) and the inevitable Mausoleoum of the Petrinovic family located on the cemetery next to the St. Nicholas church. There are little stone houses in the fields around Supetar with an oval layout and dome shaped roofs that are believed to be the habitations of the prehistoric man. This town is the tourist centre of the Island and presents itself with a very diverse offer. So apart from the mentioned cultural-historic heritage here you will find wonderful natural surroundings, beaches with all addendums and clear sea as well as various opportunities for entertainment and sport recreation such as soccer, tennis, scuba diving, water skiing and bicycling. Various cultural, entertainment and sport events are organized in the summer under the name of “Supetar summer” and the number of visitors increases every year. The inhabitants are mainly practising fishing, viticulture, production of olive oil and cheese, cultivation of fruit and tourism. Accommodation is available in hotels, luxurious villas, apartments and rooms and for your stay to be more pleasant we recommend you try some of the island and Dalmatian specialities in one of the numerous taverns and restaurants such as tavern Vinotoka, Ranc Palute, agrotourism Ranjak and many others.
