The Croatian islands of Brač and Šolta have been connected for the first time by a commercial boat line.
A new daily fast-line boat connection between the two islands has just launched.
The boat will leave Split daily, before stopping off in Rogač on the island of Šolta then heading to Milna on the island of Brač.
The Rogač (Šolta)-Milna (Brač) leg will take just 20 minutes.
“This line, which the County will co-finance to the tune of one million kuna annually, is the first which will connect the islands of Šolta and Brač. The fast boat, which has 253 passenger seats and went from Split to Rogač on the island of Šolta, will now continue on to Milna on the island of Brač and then return to Split the same way,” County Prefect Blazenko Boban said, reported Slobodna Dalmacija.
The route is operated by the Krilo shipping company and has just been launched.
The route is seen as an important one during the summer months and will allow tourists to make easy day-trips to the islands.
The boat will leave Split port daily at 6:30 pm, heading to Rogač on Šolta then to Milna on Brač. It will leave Brač daily at 6:25 am and head towards Split via Šolta.
