The beautiful village of Starigrad on the island of Hvar in Croatia. It literally means 'old town' and was founded by ancient Greek colonists. It has a wonderful collection of museums and fascinating buildings. A great place to explore on holiday.

A butterfly and a medieval church in Škrip on the island of Brač off Croatia's Dalmatian Coast. According to tradition, the charming village is the birthplace of Helena, mother of the Roman emperor Constantine (the Great). We visit it on our brand-new cruise in Southern Dalmatia.  http://www.petersommer.com/croatia/tours/

Ancient Greek fortification tower - Tor - near Jelsa on the island of Hvar in Croatia, today. A lovely though steep walk to reach it affording stupendous views.

Looking out from the fortress over Hvar town on the island of Hvar in Croatia a few days ago. A perfect spot for a cultural holiday.

This morning: a view of the town of Pučišća on the island of Brač in Croatia. Pučišća is famous for the numerous quarries in the vicinity and for its school of stonemasons. Brač produces a beautiful white marble and very finely grained limestone. They were used for the Palace of Diocletian at nearby Split, but also for the Reichstag in Berlin and - rumour has it - for the White House in Washington, DC.
