After a 70 minutes bus ride from Bol to Supetar we wanted to take a drink in a local cafe and enjoy the view of the quaint town. The harbour with its Austrian style buildings and the many cafes with outdoor terraces looked like a perfect place.We sat down in a place called "Dolce Vita" and sampled the list of beverages which offered a large variety...more
We were here for lunch so crowds were minimal. The patio area looks over a leafy park - dinner in the eveing would an enjoyable affair. I started with octopus salad - tender meaty chucks of tentacles slathered in fresh olive oil. The mussels were plump, juicy and instead of the mussels being red-orange they were pale white - the white wine broth...more

We came to Supetar by bus from Bol, which was our first destination on the island of Brac. In summertime there are about 6 daily buses connecting Bol with Supetar. The trip takes about 70 Minutes and a single ticket costs 35 Kuna (about 5 Euro, 2008).The bus station of Supetar is situated right in the heart of the town, just adjacent to the ferry...more

Regardless Supetar is not the place with main stone items production, quarry and stone workshops are not far away and here on the main market and around "riva" you may buy a lot of different stone products like pots, candle holders, mortars, watches etc.
Don't forget that stone is heavy and if you bay few, maybe you should pay more for your luggage when you flight back home.
Ivan Rendic (1849-1932) is considered to be the most important Croatian sculptor of the 19th century.
He was born in Imotski (Dalmatia), but spent both his youth and his last years of his life in Supetar.
He created more than 200 statues, which can be found in cities all around Southern Europe.
In Supetar a few of his works can be seen on the local cemetery. A statue called "Allegory of Mind" is situated in front of the town library in the heart of Supetar's old town.
The small Tourist Information Office of Supetar is well equipped with all sorts of free brochures and maps of Supetar and the island of Brac.
We even got an "In your Pocket Guide - Split" there.
As Supetar doesn't have any Left Luggage facilities we could even leave our luggage in the office for free.
The Tourist Information Office of Supetar is located at Porat 1, just between the ferry port and the marina.
The main beach of Supetar is the horseshoe shaped Uvala Banj, which is situated just between the harbour and the St. Nicolas peninsula. Behind the beach a resort hotel complex can be found.Some more, probably quieter beaches are located further along the coast to both the west and the east side. Like most beaches in Croatia, the beaches of Supetar...more
As Supetar is the main ferry port of Brac, the harbour is of course dominated by the landing place for the ferries from Split. Nevertheless a picturesque marina and fishing harbour is situated just next to the ferry port. It is lined by cafes and restaurants with outdoor terraces as well as with Austrian-style buildings.more
