Supetar – «Roditelj» decorates the port
Since the beginning of May, the port in the town of Supetar has been decorated by a 104 year old cargo sailing boat which speaks of the centuries old nautical tradition of the island of Brač. This is the boat `Roditelj`, the oldest authentic boat built on the Adriatic, which is also a protected cultural good of Croatia. The boat was built in 1907, in the harbour Piran, in Slovenia. It was built without machinery, as handwork of the old caulk craftsmen. It was first intended to carry cargo and it was mostly used for stone transport. It had an especially important role in the Second World War when it participated in the transport of refugees to El Shalt. In the middle of the last century it was motorized and it became a motor sailing boat which was used mostly for tourist trips.

Many consider it to be a characteristic coastal sailing boat, which you could come across along the whole Dalmatian and Istrian coast, all the way to the bay of Venice. The role of this boat will now be in representing Supetar and the island of Brač at various regattas, and it will also be used for attractive sailing trips. While docked, the boat will be an open air maritime museum, with exhibits that have been preserved and donated by old Supetar families.

Located in the bay of St. Peter, after which it was named, Supetar is one of the most attractive tourist destinations. It is rich in beautiful beaches, culturally-historical monuments and churches. Supetar offers various accommodation, gastronomy offer, numerous events, festivals and unforgettable summer nights.
