I missed this when it came out a month ago, but what a treat to start the day.
The island of Hvar is on of Croatia’s most elite destinations, with tourists coming for the beaches, the nighlife, the view, the lavender, the food, and the wine.
Few leave the island knowing what a rich cultural destination it is, with millennia of fascinating history. An island which has more UNESCO heritage than any other in the world.
But now, in just 6 minutes, you can learn so much in this brilliant animation fo the history of Hvar, which was posted on the official Hvar Town page on August 12.
I don’t know all the people involved, but when there is a cultural project about Hvar that has the involvement of legends such as Zorka Bibic and Sime Fio, you know it is worth watching.
And it took me a while to realise who was the owner of the voice with the excellent narration – none other than TCN sport editor, Daniela Rogulj.
