Dalmatian Islands (Brac,Hvar)

Dalmatian Islands (Brac,Hvar)

Dalmatian Riviera:

Split:

Split town is the centre of Split Riviera and also a cultural and administrative center of Middle Dalmatia. With train and bus stations, ferry port, and the airport (25 km from the city) linking it with the rest of Croatia, Split is the main transport hub on the Croatia's Adriatic coast. The port of Split is not only a relevant transport hub to connect with Brac, Hvar, Vis, Solta, Korcula and other Middle Dalmatia islands and nearby regions of Trogir on the northwest and Omis on the south. The heart of the historical complex of Split town is the Palace of Diocletian (a Roman emperor native of this area), which is considered one of the most ancient remains in the world, included in the list of protected World Heritage sites by UNESCO. Today it is one of best conserved Roman palaces. Other important archaeological remains within the palace are the Temple of Jupiter and the Mausoleum of Diocletian which later became the Cathedral of St. Diomed (Sveti Duje). The cathedral has an ornate altar and bell tower in Romanesque-Gothic style, a mixture of styles reserved for those who love architecture. Other historical monuments in Split Riviera are the remains of Salona, the most important Roman city at this side of the Adriatic, Klis fortress and a Roman aqueduct that is still in use.

Island of Hvar:

A 50 minute journey by catamaran from Split is the splendid Island of Hvar. The island originally flourished as a trading post of the Venetian Empire and thrived as merchants bought from and sold to the passing Venetian ships. The island now plays host to the Mediterranean jetset with well off Italians mooring their yachts in the harbour during the summer months. The island has also become popular with the young set who enjoy the many and varied nightlife, holidaymakers who enjoy the fine restaurants and history of the fascinating island.

Island of Brac:

Closer to Split than Hvar, Brac Island is the largest island of the central Dalmatian group of islands, the third largest among the Adriatic islands; area 394.57 sq km; population 13,824. It is separated from the mainland by the Brac Channel, from the island of Solta by the so-called Splitska Vrata (Split Gate) and from the Island of Hvar by the Hvar Channel.The highest peak of the island, Vidova Gora (Vitus' Mount) (778 m), is also the highest peak of all Croatian islands. The limestone part of the coast is rocky and steep, while the rest is rather low and sandy (on the southern side from Farska to Bol, and on the northern side from Sutivan to Supetar).

Tucked away in a tranquil bay, surrounded by a lush pine grove, and only a short ten minute walk from the historic city of Hvar by seafront promenade, Amfora. Hvar Grand Beach Resort is the our favourite hotel on the island. Its contemporary designed rooms with breath-taking views of the…
