Solta has always been an island of fishermen and farmers, vineyards and olive trees, and today is a chest which preserves the memory of the Mediterranean as it once was. Walk the old stone streets and let it take you back in time. You will have an amazing experience touring and tasting traditional dried figs, visiting cellars where people follow the old traditions when it comes to making red wine including Dobričić famous lineage.
Rare are those who cannot resist the smells and tastes of unspoiled nature and healing healthy climate. Roman Emperor Diocletian and the Illyrian queen Teuta knew that. Solta was an inspiration to the greatest Croatian poets Marko Marulić and Peter Hektorovic. We have the same opportunity to look at the Solta today in the same light. There is a fireplace in front of the grill and wine singing Dalmatian songs, and the silence of the night is only occasionally interrupted by mysterious calls from the bird ćuvita which is also a trademark of Solta, and the most commonly sought after souvenir from the island.
Solta is an island with a medium-sized coastal length of 70 km with 7 bays and islands on the west side. The island has 8 villages (Stomorska, Upper Village, Nečujam Grohote, Rogac, Middle Village, Lower Village and Maslinica), a total of 1500 inhabitants. In the centre of the island Solta in the village of Grohote are all important amenities such as the ambulance with heliport, post office, police, pharmacy, firehouse, hunting and village hall, mills, markets and shops.
The crystal clear sea, Mediterranean vegetation, natural beauty, good wine and fish along with Soltas hospitality are a number of reasons why tourists from all over Europe including the Croatians always go back.
There is only 20km from the Split airport to the harbour, and then coming to Solta is simple and fast because of the numerous daily catamarans and ferries.
ROGAC Rogac is the oldest seaside resort and a place where most visitors come into the first contact with the island. Throughout history Rogac was a place of fishermen and sailors. Population has existed since Roman times, but because of the risk of pirate attacks and the distance of the field, Rogac never contained a large number of residents. A major archaeological finds are the remains of a Roman farm buildings in the bay of Banje, and on the opposite side there is the discovery of the ancient walls in the sea. In the centre of Rogac there is a tourist office, restaurants, gas station, small marina for boaters, church of Saint Teresa, and many natural beaches and seaside promenades.
