Bol on the island of Brač is known for the beach Zlatni rat, which is unique in the world and with good reason we call it SymBOL of the Adratic. The beach stretches almost half a kilometer vertically into the sea, and it is interesting that the top of the famous beach is constantly changing. Namely, the shape depends on the influence of waves and sea currents. These same currents and winds are responsible for the phenomenon of changing the shape of the Golden War. The top of Zlatni rat is slightly bent to the west, slightly to the east, and unfortunately a small pool is sometimes built. Because of all that, they call it a geomorphological miracle and it is protected by law as a significant landscape.
That is why this beach is always different and it is not surprising that Bol is the most desirable destination on our coast. The Golden War is a unique phenomenon. Scientists explain that it was caused by several factors - erosion from the nearby Vidova gora and the deposition of shores around the reef caused by sea currents and waves over the years.
Measurements have shown that the Golden War is getting longer every year. The total area of the beach is 19.900 square meters, and the forested part is 8.600 square meters. During the Golden War, vineyards and fig trees were once planted almost to the very shore of the sea.
Zlatni rat beach is two kilometers away from the center of Bol. As many as 4000 bathers is the capacity of the beach whose pictures have traveled all over the world. The promenade to the beach is paved, and the Golden War can be reached by boat or tourist train.
According to some chroniclers and historical sources, the original name of the Golden War was the Long War, or, as the Boljans called it - Rôt. According to some stories, "Zlatni rat" was not named because of its color, but because of the rich catch of fish, which was the main source of income for the people of Bol, along with wine production. The Golden War in the past as well as today is worth its weight in gold.
Dragons and sometimes snow descended on him
Dragons in the Golden War were once a normal occurrence, not the mythical ones though. Namely, at one time adventurers eager for adrenaline descended with dragons from the 780-meter-high Vidova gora, which towers over the Golden War. For the safety of bathers, this adventure is banned today.
Zlatni rat is one of the few Croatian beaches that is sometimes covered in snowflakes. It is a scene that will not be forgotten and this phenomenon is interesting because Brač is one of the sunniest areas of our beautiful country with almost 2700 hours of sunshine a year.
Zlatni rat is a favorite place of swimmers and surfers from all over the world. This paradise beach is one of the most beautiful pebble beaches on the Croatian coast, and also the most recognizable view of Bol and Brac.
