Nakon što se u nedjelju 22. travnja obilježio „Dan hrvatske knjige“, u ponedjeljak, 23. travnja u cijelom svijetu se održala manifestacija „Noć knjige 2012.“
Svjetski dan knjige i autorskih prava, proglašen je 1995. godine na Glavnoj skupštini UNESCO-a, kao simbolični datum u svjetskoj književnosti jer su tog dana 1616.

Laxness, Vladimir Nabokov, Joseph Pla i manuel Mejia Vallejo. U SAD-u, Velikoj Britaniji, Njemačkoj itd. na ovaj datum se afirmira ljubav prema knjizi i čitanju, za koju se tiskaju posebne besplatne knjige i dijele svima željnima čitanja.

Svirče – Kokošora: peace, love and the good old rock’n’roll!

Besides the terrible war Croatia was struck by another adversity in the 90s. The popular CRO DANCE was dominating the Croatian music scene so we witnessed many one hit ‘’singers’’. It must have been a miracle that Hvar at the time listened mostly to Bob Marley and reggae music in general. Of course, there were always those fascinated by different Senna Ms and IBs (Cro dance performers) but luckily those obsessions were pretty short.
Reggae movement took stride on Hvar in the 90s, mostly thanks to our Porin winning Stjepan Barišić (GEGO), enjoyed by the ‘natives’ as well as our guests who visited even in those times of war. We should mention the bands that performed and played live on Hvar in the 90s: Band Zvir, Aloha Big Band, Tranfostation Band, Piranha Band and other smaller bands.

Palagruža – Diomedes’ island

Branko Kirigin really needs no special introduction to the people of Hvar: this famous archeologist is so intertwined with the island it would be very difficult to separate the two, even using scientific methods.

Today we would like to present a family agricultural business (OPG) Sv. Ivan Krstitelj (St. John the Baptist) from the central part of Hvar. In June of 2011 a few enthusiasts started making a product currently unique in the offer of the island.

Hvar as a wedding destination

João Miguel Simões, a famous Portuguese journalist who specializes in travel and lifestyle got a very difficult task while writing his first article for the Zankyou Magazine.
As Simões himself admits he hesitated whether to do it, but not because of a lack of theme or inspiration but on the contrary, the choice was just too big.
Keeping in mind the theme ‘’a wedding destination’’ or ‘’honeymoon destination’’ with an emphasis on romance he set himself some criteria which state that ‘’the destination needs to be close enough but still far away to ensure the feeling of ‘’getting away’’, sophisticated enough without being pretentious, with a diverse offer that would satisfy desires as well as budget. And finally, it is just as important that it is able to combine in balanced doses relaxation and excitement, the sea and blue sky, some history and the profane’’. Even though he was facing a large number of destinations, without too much effort he chose as you may have guessed already: Hvar.
