Photographer's Note

Situated in a picturesque natural setting, facing the South, the sun and the sea, historical town of Hvar is today the main tourist centre of the island Hvar, and one of the favourite resorts on the Dalmatian Rivera.

Hvar lies in the cove protected by the Pakleni Islands in the South and a low crest in the North. Called "the Croatian Madera", is famous for its very specific climate with a lot of sunshine, very few rainy days and almost no snow at all. As a rule, hotel guests pay only half a price if it is raining for the whole day and nothing at all if it is snowing (which occurs almost never).

Further, on the hill - modern mansions of local inhabitants.
