The city of Hvar has a long and distinguished history as center for trade and culture in the Adriatic. An independent commune within the Venetian Empire during the 13th to 18th centuries, it was an important naval base with a strong fortress above, encircling town walls and protected port. Cultural life thrived as prosperity grew, and Hvar is the site of one of the oldest surviving theatres in Europe, opened in 1612. The seven-century old walls still survive, as do many of the noble houses and public buildings from 15th - 17th centuries.

Very nice view of a street where people were walking and shopping, deep blue sky background exhibited the architectural details vividly. Good composition and very very sharped image. Very beautifully shoot it.
warm regards and thanks,

Good morning Janusz,
Bright daylight enhanced the wide paved-road and the surrounding.
Tourists stroll along the cafe's added vivid tone to the scene. Well taken with fine depth and clarity.

l love this place.
l visited this square some years ago.
Your photo is very well composed and the colours are excellent.
Hvar is one the most special place in Croatia for me. It has wild and dramatic coasts, but incredibly lovable.
