Brač island-Milna village- Our first stop is Milna, a seaside village on the island of Brac. This is a fishermen's village and it is ideal for a coffee break on the waterfront. Milna bay is very famous and known as a sailing paradise. You can walk around the village's beautiful promenade and see a small church and an old fishing factory. Back on board, surrounded by the blue Adriatic, we'll make our way to the lavender island of Hvar and its glittering port of Hvar town.
Hvar island- The second destination we will arrive is island Hvar. We will visit the beautiful Hvar town the one of the most lively and fun-loving destinations in all of Croatia.
The most interesting things that we can recommend to explore in the town are:
Hvar’s cathedral - together with Bishop’s palace, encloses the east side of the biggest square in Dalmatia Hvar’s Pjaca (St. Stephen’s sq.), dedicated to St. Stephen, the Pope and martyr, patron of dioceses and Hvar town.
Fortica (Spanjola) fortress - built above old city in the mid 16th century. Its architecture and military history will thrill you as much as the view of the city of Hvar and surrounding islands.
Arsenal – one of the first municipal theatres in Europe, founded in 1612., erected on the ancient Arsenal (a space used for repairing of galleons, and a storage of various seafaring tools). The theatre’s exterior is mostly preserved in its original form.
The Franciscan monastery - built in 15th century as a retreat for sailors. Within the monastery there are the artifacts exhibited in the monastery collection which is also the oldest on the island. It consists of paintings, manuscripts, old coins and incunabula.
Pakleni islands- Pakleni Islands are our last stop, just 15 minutes away by speed boat. After enjoying and absorbing the history of Hvar you can enjoy swimming.
Often mistakenly called Hell’s Islands, the name Pakleni is taking from a type of resin used in ship building.
