Another great boost of motivation for this successful destination to expand and improve its offer is also given by significant anniversaries, such as the 25th anniversary of the Supetar Tourist Board, as well as the 110th anniversary of Banje, Supetar’s favorite beach.

PROJECTS WHICH OFFER THE BEST OF BRAČ. Supetar town does not just boast on its glory – the professionals here are very determined to enrich and extend its offer, what is nicely shown in the project of revival of Škrip area, thus presenting the part of the strategy for a more evened-out development of tourism throughout the town. This initiative will especially thrill all fans of protected cultural heritage and original island environments, as an authentic rural unit and many attractive objects (such as Kaštel Cerineo, Kaštel Radojković – Brač Island Museum, St. Jelena Church, St. John the Baptist Church, ancient Roman quarry etc.) will be given a new life. At the same time, it will raise the quality of life of the local population, so the tourism valorization of the said attractions will result in benefits for the entire community.

But that’s not all – new and inviting attractions are here to put a wide smile on the faces of active holiday fans – what do you think of a 140-km long walk around the whole island? Namely, it is a praiseworthy project of making the Brač promenade – a pedestrian-hiking trail based on existing macadam paths, which will take you to explore all the most attractive spots on the island (such as Zlatni Rat, Blaca desert, the bays on the south side of the island, Ložišća, Škrip, Museum of Oil, Lovrečina Bay, stonemasons’ school in Pučišća, St. John’s Church in Povlja…). Recreation with a dose of intriguing sights, which are genuinely here to encourage guests to find out what’s coming up next along the path? If you ask us – a total hit!

A FEW FABULOUS GASTRO STORIES. We do not object to those guests who, when coming to Supetar, are motivated to explore another side of it – the one appealing to the palate. The authenticity, with a small dose of mystique that Brač exudes, has not surpassed the island’s local kitchens (in local dialect – kužine), including the ones in Supetar. It is a must to mention that the gastronomy of Brač, apart from the widely known lamb, home-made wines and tasty cheeses and prosciutto, boasts with several dishes that have reached the national list of protected intangible heritage, such as “hrapoćuša” cake, which irresistibly resembles the visual image of Brač karst or the ancient dish made with lamb intestines – “vitalac”.


And speaking of lamb, we cannot skip to mention the splendid rural households on Vidova gora. Already in the olden days, 200 years ago, this was a favorite gathering place for eating, drinking and socializing, and today it is one of the island’s hottest gastronomic points, worthy of all recommendations. Namely, only fresh meat will be served here because the hosts do not have a fridge and they prepare meat only when they have guests in arrival!

In addition to lamb, they also have their vineyard with 2500 vines, and produce their own wine, cheese, juices, brandy, vegetables … Visit this truly unique place and try their grilled or steamed lamb, lamb tripe and of course – the famous “vitalac”!

If you are in search for an excellent way to taste “the best of” gastronomy in Brac, projects and culinary events in Supetar promise a real spectacle for the palate. The Sunflower awarded “Island Cuisine” project started in 2016, with the aim of promoting authentic gastronomy and reviving simple, old and traditional island dishes, taking them back to restaurant tables!

Thanks to this project, in a few rural households, agrotourisms and taverns, you can taste dishes based on healthy, accessible and original ingredients, coming from domestic gardens and olive groves, prepared by tried-and-true recipes that have been carefully guarded by generations of grandmothers on Brač! The Museum of Oil in Škrip is also part of the project, which regularly delights guests from all the corners of the world, familiarizing them with the traditional olive oil production process, which can also be tasted there, along with a variety of original delicacies.

It is sufficient to take a look at the very strict Tripadvisor and convince yourself of the general thrill which this place provokes in guests! The intense aromas of peculiar delicacies are widespread in Supetar especially in April, when the culinary event “Biser mora” (Croatian for “Pearl  of the Sea”) is held – it is an international competition of culinary maestros, held in Supetar hotels. Inspired by the diversity of Supetar’s gastronomic delights, what else can we say at the very end, but – bon appetite!

THE GATES OF OUR BIGGEST DALMATIAN ISLAND – the town of Supetar – has opened its door to a return to tradition and rural tourism. And it is having a very stylish comeback – namely, next year in May Supetar will be hosting a congress dedicated to this specific tourism branch!

This is not by chance, for head people of our island’s metropolis know that a return to everything primal, original and authentic that a destination has to offer is, at the moment, the most current trend in global tourist movements. In this spirit, they have put out on the tables of their restaurants and family rural households the most delicious traditional delicacies, enlivened old customs, brought their guests to authentic stone houses with an enchanting view, and gave us a great material for one of the most intriguing and – the tastiest – texts so far!


4th Congress of rural tourism in Supetar
Congress of rural tourism hosted by Supetar is going to be held from 9 – 13 May 2018. It will be one of the greatest expert tourist events ever held in Supetar. Apart from the professional part, there will be rich accompanying programme of fairs, concerts and excursions where they will present gastronomic, outdoor and heritage offer of Brač’s rural area that has, over the years, become an integral part of Brač’s tourist story.

A WORLD AS TRANSFERRED FROM A VISION. But, before we take a look at Supetar’s kitchens, we can’t resist not to see what cultural-historical attractions the place has to offer, which give a specific picturesque character covered in vail of mystery! For, how else would you describe Dragon’s cave, which looks as if it emerged out of the world between sleep and reality? A 30-min. ascend to the cave from Murvica place, accompanied by an expert guide, is a bit tiring, but you will be awarded with a view of fascinating reliefs that are a blend of Slavic mythology and Christian iconography! In 15th century this cave was a habitat of Glagolitic priests, and an authentic relief of dragon carved in a cliff would certainly be gladly used by makers of Game o Thrones!

No less interesting is Blaca dessert – monk’s monastery built close to a cliff that, like a nice apparition, resists the time! It is hard to believe that this complex of buildings of different purposes started with stone partition of a cave that was a shelter of hard working hermits against the Ottomans. Its interior will take your breath away – see old monastery kitchen, manuscripts, piano, gramophone, telescope… And for a complete experience of one of emblematic Brač’s traditions, set out on a theme road Hercules to stone quarry Rasohe, or visit Pučišća and its stone masonry school where you can see real works of art of hardworking students’ hands – made of far known Brač’s stone!

GASTRO – HEDONISM WITH A MARK OF TRADITION. If of all Brač’s experiences you prefer gastronomic ones, set out on a theme road “Dolčevita” (Dolce Vita) and sail in – sweet life where the most pronounced is gastro magic of Brač – 5 restaurants, taverns and rural households and a family vinery will please even the choosiest gourmets!

Supetar has turned to traditional gastronomy, and with a leitmotif Unlock the taste of authentic Brač island cuisine started a project ISLAND CUISINE Supetar which brings back the dishes made by traditional recipes by Brač’s grannies! This noble initiative has been embraced by 5 Supetar’s restaurants, and gastronomy oriented guests will be delighted to finally have a place to taste simple traditional island’s dishes.

But, they are not to blame, a simple look on tasty menus makes your mouth water, and the fact that the ambience is mostly authentic, in nicely arranged old house, is an extra reason for a visit! Agrotourisms are praised in all languages – a simple view on their tasty delicacies like spit roasted lamb, meat and fish under the baking lid, Brač’s cake and rožata; homemade juices made of Melissa and sage – makes our mind twist. Same thing happened after looking at a menu of Oil Museum, or some of rural households.

THEY WIN PALATES…AND HEARTS. Other Brač’s gourmet destinations offer great stories and experiences. Menu of tavern in Dol, together with already mentioned delicacies, offers rabbit in wine and varenik sauce with homemade gnocchi, manistrus pomidori and carbonara made by the old recipes, and it delighted all its visitors! A good proof of this is a comment posted on strict TripAdvisor by Italian lady Alessandra: “There are no words to describe this place – it is not only a restaurant, but a complete family experience!” This is exactly what head people of Supetar’s tourism wanted to accomplish and share with their guests.

Rural households on  Vidova Gora goes even one step further, they offer tasty homemade prosciutto, cheese and exceptional vitalac (ancient dish from Brač made of lamb or young goat’s offal that is unique in the world!) it offers an experience of a true Brač’s shepherd village! During summer cattle fair is organized here that attracts great number of people from Brač and tourists – this way kind Brač’s hosts win the palates of their guests with offered dishes, and their hearts with lovely animals – donkey named Jozica and cute dog Pipi are very popular on Facebook!


In a quest to delight your palates Oil Museum in Škrip has also been most successful. Together with delicious hrapošćuša cake (decorated with tasty walnuts so it resembles Brač’s karst) it offers nice olive and fig spreads and red homemade wine. It is possible, off course, to taste awarded olive oil and get familiar with the process of its production.
