    Hvar Off The Beaten Path

    The coast of Hvar is full of beautiful beaches and bays. During our stay on the island we tried to get each time to a different one and it was no problem to drive a half an hour or even an hour two times a day (in the morning and in the afternoon) to find a nice quiet bay where we went for a swim and enjoyed in a shadow reading a book. On the...

  • Poljud (area and stadium)

    Split Off The Beaten Path

    Opposite the Poljud football stadium you will find lots of giant blocks of flats that date back to socialist Yugoslavia. There are hardly any shops there and the buildings are pretty depressing. We walked through them on our way back from the stadium to the old town. In these building lots and lots of Torcida people live. They are the original fans...

    On the southern coast of the island facing the open sea is a small fishing village Zavala. It is located on the local road that goes from Jelsa.

The tunnel is regulated with traffic light...

    Hvar Off The Beaten Path

    During our "safari" trip we visited Grapceva cave, a hidden well preserved cave with interesting history - archaeologists have discovered that this cave was not inhabited, but was used as a place of worship. Interesting "sculptures" of stalactites/stalagmites, no wonder people found deeper meaning in their magical forms. The guide was a bit...

    Split Off The Beaten Path

    BOL - The beaches on Brac have something special, particularly the Zlatni Rat beach -- their gravel promontory shifts from side to side as the wind and waves constantly change their shapes. There are many seaside resorts on the island, such as Postire, Milna, Supetar, and especially Bol, one of the biggest attractions and the largest tourist center...

  • Stari Grad

    Hvar Off The Beaten Path

    If you come to Hvar, take a look at Stari Grad for a day...it's only a short bus ride from Hvar. Actually I arrived first on Stari Grad, and then took the bus from Hvar. The name "Stari Grad" simply means "Old Town" in Serbo-Croat. This town is supposed to be the oldest settlement on the island of Hvar (correct me if I'm wrong!). The side streets...

    Medvidina cave on the island of Biševo, not far from Komiža, is very interesting geomorphologically. Its entrance on the sea surface is relatively large-sized but these dimensions gradually decrease towards its interior. At its end, the cave is very narrow and low, and its complete length of 160 meters ends with a little beach. Besides its...
