There are many beautiful places and towns in Croatia that I want to introduce you to. This time I decided to show you the sunniest and very attractive island Hvar. This island belongs to the Middle-Dalmatian island group and it is located near Split which a ferry line connects to the lovely island.
The length of the island is 68 kilometres and its whole surface is 300 square kilometres. The island’s biggest centre is the City of Hvar and after that Jelsa, Stari Grad, Sucuraj and other small places.
Last summer I spent a few days at Hvar with my family and friends and I can say that it was one of the most beautiful vacations ever.
My friend’s parents are the owners of a house in Vrboska, close to Jelsa where we were staying. Almost every day we made small car tours around the island to experience its beauty.
Every town and village on the island has its own charm and beauty. Each one of the stone houses, churches, streets and plazas tell their own stories and showcase the soul of every place...
With this post, I want to introduce you to the beautiful city of Split which is the second biggest city in Croatia. Although I never lived there my connection to this lovely coast town started in my childhood. I remember when my parents used to go to Split occasionally because of their work. I was always very excited about it because I was hoping to get a present when they come back. I still have a memory of a beige sweater with some coloured details on it. I felt very special wearing it because in a small town like mine there was no place to buy something similar.
Later on after some other life events, Split and I built a special connection. Because of that I can surely say that I love the town in a special way. I just remembered a song that goes something like “There is some secret connection…”
Split was established in the times of Roman Empire when the emperor Diocletian decided to build a palace. The palace was a foundation for the further growth of the city.
