Hey there Hvar


After Split, we took a ferry over to Hvar to check out the city and spend some more time soaking up the sun. When we went to get on the Ferry, we saw a huge yacht which it turns out is owned by the guy who owns Kingfisher Airlines.

Renting a boat

While we were there, per the recommendation of the people we were renting the apartment from, we decided to spent the day renting a little boat. There’s an archipelago nearby, so you can see the islands. It was AMAZING, and I wish we could have done this everyday we were there.

Hvar Fortress

This fortress as it stands now, was rebuilt in the 1500’s after the originally one burned down after a gunpowder explosion. It’s a great place to get a view of the city, but we ended up driving because it’s quite the hike up there.

Overall, Hvar was a really cool place to visit. In fact, croatia as a whole was a really cool place to spend some time relaxing, and do outdoor activities. Would definitely go back again.
