The island, which has almost all and will not leave anyone indifferent, is the island of Hvar, which is the clash of modern and luxury, high style and rich historical heritage. The landscape full of Mediterranean flowers, lavender, and vineyards hide a beautiful Palmizana and other small islands, which are located not far from the Hvar.
