KORČULA - VIS (breakfast, lunch and tasting)
Continue to the island of Vis, once, in the 4th century BC, one of the main Greek colonies. Vis is relatively under the radar for tourists. For a long time, it was in use as a Yugoslavian army base – until 1991. As a result, the culture and architecture are extremely well preserved. Rosemary, capers and sage grow wild around the island. Try some exquisite local wines. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, City museum or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful Villae Rusticae situated along the waterfront.

Early in the morning, cruising resumes towards the small island of Biševo to visit the Blue Cave, a magnificent natural phenomenon (entrances to be paid on the spot – approx. 10-15 EUR).

Continue towards the jet-set island of Hvar with a swimming stop and lunch on board at the Pakleni Islands. Hvar, the longest and sunniest island in the Adriatic is known for glorious lavender fields and breath-taking beauty. Arrive in the afternoon for the guided tour of Hvar - visit the Renaissance cathedral with its original tower, and the oldest community theatre in Europe founded in 1612. Hike up the zig-zag path to the town fort overlooking the harbour for lovely scenic views of the vessel and the Paklinski Islands.

HVAR – (BOL) SPLIT (breakfast and lunch)
Morning departure to Brač island where swimming is planned at the most famous beach in Dalmatia – Zlatni Rat near Bol – whose shingle promontory shifts from side to side as the wind and waves constantly cause the shape to change.

Dubrovnik - a popular film destination
Popularity of Dubrovnik greatly helped Hollywood movies filmed on its historical streets. The last such project was the series "Game of Thrones" that Dubrovnik lifted high on Hollywood sets. There is no doubt that this popular series has opened many doors for this small town on the Adriatic. Tourism and film industry go hand in hand to each other, so that the future of this city certainly can only further flourish. Fans of this popular series travel miles and miles to see and feel all the locations where their favorite series were filmed to experience the scene from a small screen.
Dubrovnik is a city in southern Croatia, administrative center of Dubrovnik-Neretva County and one of the most historic Croatian tourist destination. It is 25 km distant from the international airport of Dubrovnik, regularly connected with most of European cities, and the 90 km distant from the highway, which connects Croatia with Europe. In addition to a very good air and land connections, Dubrovnik boasts excellent maritime connection. Dubrovnik port is one of the most visited in the Mediterranean. It is the first point maritime route from east to west on entering in the Adriatic Sea, it is protected with islands and the Neretva valley is the fastest communication with the interior. Recent archaeological research found that a settlement on the site of the city existed in the 6th century, and probably before. Dubrovnik expanded with the arrival of the Croats after the ancient Epidaurus (today's Cavtat) in the 7th century.
Of the many manifestations of Dubrovnik, one should emphasize the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, which was founded in 1949. The unique ambience of the closed and open stages of the Renaissance and Baroque city of Dubrovnik in the period from 10 July to 25 August held numerous music, drama and dance performances. The backbone of the festival are works of Marin Držić, Gundulić Ivan, Ivo Vojnovic, William Shakespeare, Carlo Goldoni, the Greek tragedians and others. The musical part of the program presents the best local composers, soloists and orchestras, and their foreign guests. Display even operas, particularly comic. Libertas Film Festival started in 2005 with the idea that the festival cultural offer should be expanded with the film offer. The festival takes place during the summer and on a repertory are films and documentary films from independent productions dedicated to the promotion of freedom in countries around the world. Movies rated best by the audience receives a special audience award.
