  STS081-747-033 Brac Island, Croatia January 1997
The largest of the Dalmation Islands, Brac Island can be seen in this southwest-looking view. Brac Island covers an area of 152 square miles (394 square km) and is separated 12 miles (19 km) from the mainland by a channel. The island is mountainous and wooded. Vineyards in the valleys produce excellent wine. Fishing and fish canneries are important to the islandís economy as are the marble and slate quarries and asphalt deposits. The island of Brac is also a popular vacation center with many summer resorts along the coast. A small portion of Hvar Island is visible in the upper left portion of the image. A section of the Dinaric Alps cover the bottom half of the image. The rugged coastal area has many bays and inlets and is a tourist region.
