Vrboska

Along a narrow and curving fjord, unusual only as wonders are on Hvar island, there lies Vrboska – the smallest town on the island.

But evenifit is the smallest, Vrboska is the treasure of the island. Founded in the 15th century, it is often reffered to as "LittleVenice" due to numerous small bridge.

The Vrboska area was inhabited even in ancient times, to which ruins of Roman building testify. It grew from a fishermen's village and harbour to a place called Vrbanj (hence its own name Vrboska) in 15th century into a small town which out shine seven the bigger and better known places on the island by its beauty.
