Bol, Island of Brac, Croatia

I've spent most of my childhood and adult life in a beautiful place on a small island. The name of this place is Bol.

I was born not far from there, and I was lucky that my grandparents and their ancestors before them decided to throw an anchor in Bol.

Bol is a magical place. I have not met anyone yet who was in Bol and came back not transformed. Bol has this effect on people. I do not know is it the nature, which looks like God decided to make it his retreat, the simplicity of life, the most beautiful beaches and the sea, food, wine and music at nights, or something else.. Seems like everyone finds something special for themselves.

Bol is placed on an Island of Brac, in the Adriatic cost of Croatia. There are many ways to come, quickest being the Brac Airport, 20 minute ride by car from Bol. The other way would be by far larger Split airport and then taking a boat or ferry. You can also come here sailing while cruising the Mediterranean sea.

If you want to find more information you can visit the official Bol homepage. The tourist season starts in May and lasts until October. The peak is 5th of August when also the famous Bol Fiesta takes place.

    Hello Vladmir,
    What a beautiful place! I am from Brazil but have been living in Canada for about 15 years now. Kelowna, in the Okanagan, British Columbia is nice, but nothing compared with Bol. Maybe one day I will visit.
    Thank you for the postings and all information.

      It's distinctively different to anything you could experience anywhere. You are welcome!

    Hello Vladimir,

    Thanks for all the Great Information and Tools.

    What a beautiful place.
    I live in Saint Clair, Michigan in the U.S.
    We have the Great Lakes here that breath taking as well.
    Every day I sit and watch big freighters traveling up and down the Saint Clair river between us and Canada.

    Eh , Supetar ... teenage dani .. 80`s .. kod treceg mola do podne kad odjednom nekom sevne " Dosadno je , ajmo na Zlatni Rat " , svak vec veselo sklapa svoj ashugaman , autostopom na kupanje u Bol . Na Ratu na levoj strani more mirno a ledeno , na desnoj toplo a veliki talasi . Rat se svakodnevno pomera levo i desno oko 1 metar - ako lubenicu zabodes u shljunak u plicaku da se hladi i ne drzis na oku samo po sata , adio lubenice , ashugamani svi smoceni! Au Dragi Boze , kakva plaza ! Potom all night long d.i.s.c.o. pa izjutra direkt na plazu i tek uvece ajmo ca doma u Supetar . Tada ni bilo mobilnih telefona , roditelji su shizeli od nasih nestanaka , sada znam kako im je bilo .. a srce mi je ostalo tamo 1991. .. Nakratko me utesi Google Earth ali nije to to . Pozdrav , brate Vladimire !

    Don't be so pessimistic, I've heard Colorado has great nature that I'd like to visit.

    You are So very lucky. There is NO Nostalgic Love left in America. Absolutely NO WHERE - We are all FAT Selfish Pigs that consider the Street a place to toss trash...

    It looks wonderful. Lately Croatia has become one of my preferences to tryp to.
    I hope to go there when my sons grow a little more.
