SYMPOSIUM OF THE STONEMASONS | Processing, installations and restauration of the stone
All stone carpenters, small and large companies, present and former stone carpenters, and all those with stone and carving always have this irreconcilable, special relationship, we are happy to announce that XXIII Symposium of stone with the theme of harvesting, processing, installation and restoration of stone will be held in the period from 17 to 18 May 2019 (Friday and Saturday).
This symposium has always been an important event for the entire quarry sector, both in the Republic of Croatia and in the region, and our desire for such significance continues.
The year 2019 is also a year of marking the 110th anniversary of the foundation of the Stonemason School. This institution was born in 1909 from the needs of the economy, and today, when we are witnessing the lack of staff in this branch, we must find ways to attract young people to enroll this unique school and continue this beautiful and entertaining craft. Traditional processing from this year is being upgraded, and what we have already written, and training the students to work on the CNC machine to make them readily available on the labor market.
The Symposium of Mining Since its foundation in 1990, it brings together domestic and foreign companies and distinguished business people and representatives of relevant institutions and ministries. All these years bring together different and shared interests, from the need to meet new laws and regulations, new technologies, exchange experiences to formal and informal, enjoyable and useful vocational gatherings.
It is planned to award special prizes in several categories, which are the awards for:
1. The most innovative souvenir
2. Best Architectural Work in Stone
3. The best student of the Clerical School
More information coming soon!

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!
