Island of Hvar in CroatiaWhen we think of Hvar - we think about sunshine, crickets, lavender, sage and wine. Hvar is the sunniest of all the Croatian islands and has many secluded coves. The town Hvar is located on the south-western coast of the island of Hvar and is one of the most visited tourist centres of Dalmatia. Hvar is visited during the summer as well as in winter from visitors from all around Croatia and abroad, due to these speciafic climate characteristics. Ferry lines connect Hvar with Split, Rijeka, Zadar and Dubrovnik as well as some major islands of the Croatian Adriatic.


Dubrovnik in Croatia George Bernard Shaw called Dubrovnik "paradise" and said: "Those who seek heaven on Earth must come to Dubrovnik!". He was mesmerized by this beautiful, historic city. You too will take home enchanting memories from the "jewel of the Adriatic". If you are visiting in the summer, do not miss the world-renowned Dubrovnik Summer Festival! "Hamlet” is performed as part of this festival and you can taste rozata, a delicious, traditional dessert.


Pula in Croatia This city is over 3 thousand years old and is situated at the southest end of the Istrian peninsula, where many famous writers and composers have found inspiration for their masterpieces. It is south of Rijeka and very close to Triest in Italy.

Split is one of the busiest ports in Croatia, with an international airport and regular ferry services to nearby islands, the north and south Adriatic, Italy and Greece. The merchant and passenger ships of the Split shipyards may be encountered in almost all the seas of the world.
