The Month of Lavender Has Started: Watch Hvar Bloom!

Written by Paul Bradbury Sunday, 01.06.2014. 10:24:10 Posted in: What's On This Month?, Island News

June on the island of Hvar.

Head to the fields and the hills and look out for the first signs of lavender in bloom.

Take in the aromatic scents and the spectacular views of the world's most beautiful island, a natural paradise like no other. 

At the end of the month will be the annual Lavender Festival in Velo Grablje, which was once the centre of lavender production for all Dalmatia.

It is a glorious time to visit the island of Hvar and to experience its natural beauty at its very best.

And of course, there is the unofficial anthem of Hvar - Eyes the Colour of Lavender. Listen to it below, and follow the very helpful translation from our friends at Go Hvar
