Supetar is the island’s capital, so to speak. It’s the only city on the island, developing fast in the past few years. It’s the administrative, transportation, and cultural center of the island Brač. And much more!
But, not to bother you with our boring description, let us borrow the words of a great Croatian poet, Tin Ujević, from 1929, with which he described Brač and Supetar:
“Supetar is really the right place for an ideal holiday…a charming sun in the front of which the blue strand unwinds like an ingenuous innocence of a girl….and in the evening, a deep peace…in the heart of that poor soil and ungrateful stone, there is a moment of a high and passionate domestic poetry, a source of beauty that invites to stop….so many stars whose flickers are discreet….peace is entering into my being…”
Other than Supetar, this municipality also includes charming little village Mirca, separated into two areas – one in the hills, looking like it just came out of the fairytale, and the other, more modern, right by the sea; it also includes Splitska, the original source of stones used to build the Diocletian palace in Split as well as the oldest settlement on the island – Škrip.
