July 22, 2020 – The famous Zlatni Rat beach is a trademark of Croatia, and particularly of the island of Brac and the town of Bol.
HRTurizam writes that now, this symbol is the first beach in Croatia, and among the first in Europe, with its very own, bilingual website – www.zlatniratbol.com.
The extraordinary story of Zlatni Rat is its natural phenomenon where the beach itself changes its shape and position depending on the wind that blows, waves and sea currents, which form the very top of the beach. It is continually evolving. Interestingly, measurements have shown that Zlatni Rat, which is also known as the ‘Golden Horn’, is growing longer every year.
The website aims to inform guests about the offers on the beach, provide various service information, beach etiquette, as well as real-time weather forecasts, but also the related offer of the destination Bol.
Tourist workers in Bol are currently achieving about 50% of last year’s tourist traffic, and they hope to be at about 70% of last year’s traffic by the end of July.
Most visitors are from Germany, followed by Slovenes, Czechs, Croats and Austrians.
“Given the situation, we can be satisfied with the arrivals. If there are no major difficulties related to the coronavirus, we hope to achieve about 70% of last year’s visits at the end of July. From July 24, in addition to the existing line, we expect the introduction of a second catamaran line directly to Bol. It is important to point out that we adhere to all epidemiological measures to make our guests feel safe and comfortable,” said the director of the Bol Tourist Board, Markito Marinkovic.
Twelve daily ferry lines between Split and Supetar and one catamaran line between Split and Bol currently run to Brac, and twice a week (Tuesdays and Saturdays) Zagreb is connected to Brac by air. At the beginning of August, there are plans to introduce an airline from Frankfurt to Brac, which would be active until October 23, 2029.
