Founded in the 15th century, the Vrboska we know today is a picturesque little town situated in a fjord – It is known as “Little Venice” due to its many little bridges and it is a very pleasant place to sit for a drink and watch the world go by! Vrboska has been inhabited since Roman times and there are roman ruins in its vicinity. There are also old town houses from the Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque periods to add to its historic and cultural interest.
Like much of Hvar, the bay is surounded by wonderful smelling pine forests and much of the local cooking is characterised by the local herbs, olive oil and wine produced on the island.
There are some beautiful beaches in this area too, a 5 minute drive away there are wonderful, calm bays sweeping around the coastline. Pine trees provide ample shade and lazy, book reading days are easy to find here!
