Postcards from Hvar

Long time, no see… I know. Everything except blogging keeps me busy. Anyway, I am back from my holidays in Croatia and excited to share my summer adventures. DSC_0483It all started on the ferry from Drvenik (where we stayed for a week) to Sučuraj. It did not take long but the views I got to see were incredible. Mountains, sea and the yachts looked like cut from a very kitshy poster.DSC_0495Arriving to Sučuraj, there is a lovely lighthouse right next to the sea. Since we wanted to see the capital city of Hvar (which is also called Hvar unexpectedly:D), we had to travel through the whole island. The roads are really zigzag in there so my stomach was not too happy about it.DSC_0508Anyway, the goal was worth it. City of Hvar lies near the sea but is also surrounded by mountains. The dominant part is this beautiful ancient castle (where we did not go due to a very high temperature and laziness :D). DSC_0521Hvar is one of the most favourite destinations for American tourists (even Beyonce comes here often). DSC_0525Unfortunately, I have not met her…DSC_0536But what I saw and enjoyed was the view from the roof top. The architecture of the city mostly consists of the old stone houses and narrow streets with cafés, shops and restaurants. It was literally like 100 degrees so I used every chance to hide from the sun and blend in the tiny shady corners.

And even more…DSC_0567I found this cutie hiding from the sun so I took a picture of her. Isn´t she adorable?DSC_0577When we left the capital, we continued our journey to other towns like Starigrad and Jelsa. But they are not by far as pretty as this one. Croatia has around 1000 islands but Hvar is considered to be the most beautiful, colourful and magical by many people. And I have to agree, this trip was a highlight of my summer for sure.DSC_0578Thank you for reading and till the next post, have a great summer and lots of love!
