Brač is separated from the mainland by the Brač Channel, from the island of Šolta by the so-called Splitska Vrata and from the island of Hvar by the Hvar Channel.

The old Romans have known its quality and used this very stone to build cities, amphitheaters, temples, palaces and graves all over the Dalmatia and the world, even in the White House in Washington.
The population of the island is about 13,000 people within its 23 little towns.
