About this destination
The name of the Šolta island originates from the Greek name Olyntha, meaning unripe fig. It is the island which is the closest to Split and that makes it easy to reach. There is a local saying “Dopala te Šolta!” meaning “I hope you end up on Šolta!” and it meant it was a bad thing if you moved to Šolta because of the hard life you would have there. Today with a modern way of living, but still easy going on the island, it seems this curse is not valid anymore. Perfect for one day escape from Split, especially interesting if you sail the area.
