Sutivan is a small island-municipality located on the northwest seaside of Brac in front of Split. It is only 13 km far away from Split and has an uninterrupted connection with it since its founding. While the Roman emperor Diocletian built his palace in Split, one of his dignitaries built his own under the today court Kavanjinovi dvori. We can speak about a 1700-anniversary of life in the village which is called nowadays Sutivan - it was probably named after St. John the Baptist (sv. Ivan Krstitelj).
Today Sutivan is a small and silent village with a Mediterranean atmosphere and beautiful beaches with surrounding forests, while the promenade goes from the little harbour Lucica to the bay Likve, Prbuje, Stinive, Stipanske, Male Tihe and the harbour Vicja luka. There are the most clear bathing places, where every guest can find only peace, physical and psychical health and care freeness. Sutivan has about 1000 inhabitants.
