Photographer's Note

Hvar, the island in Adriatic Sea, is the longest and the sunniest Croatian island and one of the most beautiful islands in the world. It is a part of the central Dalmatian archipelago with the area of 299.6 sq km (length 68.2 km, width up to 10.5 km) and population of 10,648 inhabitants (2011). Hvar Island is administratively part of the Split-Dalmatia county in Dalmatia, Croatia.
The island Hvar is famous for its pleasant Mediterranean climate. The island is characterized by gentle winters, warm summers and many hours of sunshine (2,718 hours a year). Maximum temperatures are never too high to render agriculture impossible (the highest recorded temperature of 37°C was reached in 1935). An average air temperature in the winter months is 9.1°C (in January 8.4°C, in July 24.8°C). Snow occurs very rarely; in January there are three snowy days in ten years and in February only one.
Friendly people, well-indented coast, numerous picturesque and intact beaches and bays, virgin nature, very rich historical and cultural inheritance, the scents of lavender, olive trees and wine are the reasons that island Hvar welcomes more and more tourists each year.
