    The location of Bol

    Bol is located in Croatia, Split-Dalmatia County, at the foot of the Vidova Gora mountain in the southeast. It is the largest establishment on the southern shore of Brač Island.

    The history of Bol

    According to archaeological findings, the area has been inhabited since ancient times. The Illyrians built the ancient Koštilo castle here, above the establishment. Proofs of Roman presence include the remains of Villa Rustica, tombs and the walls of the Roman basin. The latter can be found above the famous Zlatni Rat beach.

    The name of the establishment comes from the Latin noun “vallum”, meaning “earth wall” or rampart. Bol was first mentioned in a certificate in 1184, however, it referred to the former buildings and not the establishment. As an establishment, it was first mentioned in a sanad in 1475. To provide protection against pirates and later the Turks, the Vusio family built two castles here. One is near the beach, while the other is located between Bol and Sumartin. The Venetian rule ended in 1797, then Austrian troops invaded Dalmatia. Although the French defeated the Austrians in 1806, after Napoleon’s defeat at Leipzig, Austrians gained control over Brač Island once again. The locals made a living out of animal housing and growing grapes and olive. Bol became part of the new Serbian-Croatian-Slovene state then later Yugoslavia. It has belonged to the Independent State of Croatia since 1991.

    The climate of Bol

    The Middle Dalmatian area has a pleasant Mediterranean climate. Summers are warm and dry, while winters are incredibly mild. The average temperature in July is 25,3 °C, and it is 8,3 °C in January. Do you love swimming? The temperature of the sea might reach 25.1 °C in August.
