Island of Brac. The island of Brac, pronounced Bratch, lies just off the coast from Split, Croatia's second largest city. Numerous ferries leave the port to sail to the island. Near the centre of the island is the small village of Nerežica. Kolac Arch is about a miles from the village and is well signposted from the centre. Although it is located on private property the landowners have graciously given permission for visitors to access the arch providing they treat the area with respect and obey the signs.
The name of the arch translates as Cake Arch as Kolac means cake in Croatian and the arch is reminiscent of a ring shaped cake.
A sign by the arch states "Besides being a natural phenomenon, Kolac is a cult spot for fairies and elves who gather together on those special nights, dance on top of this triumphal arch and decorate it with flowers. It also has a magical influence on people who pass under it."
