Bonfire in honor of St. John

The traditional celebration of St John’s Strait in front of the church in Bunta with the skipping of the bonfire 23.06. and the celebration of Municipal Day 24.06.

On the eve of St. John the Baptist, after whose church the place Sutivan was named, holds a holy mass at Bunta, after which the baptismal fire is blessed, thus maintaining the ancient custom of celebrating this saint in Sutivan. Sometimes the bravest skipped the bonfire, while others would sing and hang out by the fire late into the night. This time, too, the song will resound with old Bunt as it used to be, and the fire will be skipped by children and the elderly, repeating the same verses as it used to be: From John to John, that the oysters do not have to, my feet do not hurt…

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!

Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.

BY SEA ///

There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.

First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.

Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!

Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač DeluxeRent a Motorino or M&B rent.
