Brač is a Croatian island located in the Adriatic Sea. Its area belongs to the historic region called Dalmatia. It is also the place where a picturesque port town of Pučišća is situated. The town is mostly known for the fact that the material from the local quarry was used in the process of the construction of the White House in Washington. Veselje quarry has also influenced the sculpting traditions of the town, in which many artists have created their works. There are also thirteen medieval defensive towers in the town, several historic churches and tombs of the local sculptors. The town has characteristic white buildings (some of them have even white roofs), which beautifully contrasts with the intense color of water.
