On the slopes above the village Basina are numerous vineyards where the best wines of Hvar are made.

Jelsa, which is only 10 km away, is surrounded by the island’s two highest peaks, St. Nicholas to the West and Hum to the East. It is rich with various historical monuments located in it’s churches, fields, parks, squares and other places.

Must see places:

Hvar is an ancient city with a rich history. The city faces the sunny South side of the world and has the most sunny days during the year. Its name comes from the island’s Greek name Pharos. Of the city’s historical monuments you can visit the fortress Fortica, the Hvar cathedral, theatre and Franciscan monastery. Hvar is the heart of Croatian island tourism and is one of the most visited destinations in the entire Adriatic. The main attractions of the city are: its warm, sunny climate, its various accommodation opportunities, sport and recreation, its natural beauty, a good gastronomic offer and the city’s active night life.

Stari Grad is the oldest city in Croatia. Greeks from the island Paros moved there in 384 BC and gave it the name Faros. It is located where a deep sea gulf meets the rich island soil. The old part of the city has been well maintained and is of great touristic value. The thousand year old history of this city has left numerous historical monuments such as the city walls of Faros, Roman mosaics, the early Christian church of St. John,  medieval street set, Tvrdalj (a Renaissance castle with gardens and pond), church of St. Peter and the Dominican monastery and many others. One of the best known beaches on the island is the city beach “Lanterna” located in Stari Grad.

Split is an eternally young city which lives in a slow pace that is very easy to get used to. The city is rich because of its turbulent history which is evident in its multitude of historical monuments.Take some time to learn about a small part of its history and visit Diocletian’s palace (the heart of the city), the Iron Gate, the statue of bishop Gregory of Nin, the cathedral of St. Duje, church of St. Francis, cathedral of St. Peter, the main court, St. Ante’s monastery and others.
