August 22, 2012 - Croatia
Zrce - Novalja on Pag Island
The biggest Pag's bay is surrounded by 20 km of pebbly beaches. The City of Novalja is full with restaurants and other catering establishments and it offers numerous one-day excursions, different activities and adventures. One of the best places on the Adriatic for summer night life. Novalja is an ideal place for night life.
Hvar on Hvar Island
Hvar is an island of sun and crickets, an island of lavander, palms, agaves, pine trees, laurel, sage and wine, an island of rosemary and lonely lagoons.
Hvar Theatre which is also one of the oldest Europen theatres, Fortress, Arsenal, City lodge, Cathedral, Franciscan monastery, are just some of the monuments that will enchant you with their beauty and take you back in time when Hvar was governed by Venice, Austria or Napoleon...
Summer night life in Hvar is by many said to be «the richest on the Adriatic». Parties literally last all night long, and guests can visit numerous cultural events: plays, exhibitions, concerts - from the offer of Hvar's summer manifestations. Classical music lovers can assist many musical nights in the Franciscan monastery or Illyrian and organ musical nights in the Cathedral. Open air cinema in Veneranda is also very popular. There are a lot of different musical and folklore events going on all over the town . The town has many original shops that offer souvenires made by local craftsmen, like lavender and rosemary oil that represents a real tradition of this island that, ever since the ancient times, has been called the island of lavander and rosemary. In the old part of the town there are traditional taverns where you can taste domestic wine and Dalmatian smoked ham.
Later in the night, people are gathering around many bars such as "Archie's bar", "Atelier", "Loco bar", "Kofein", "Hula-Hula"... If you are into some "harder" partying do not miss to visit "Nautica" and "Kiva" (party is guaranteed!), and don't forget the best cocktail bar in Croatia Carpe Diem, or "seize the day", who's round the clock programme will surely satisfy you...and if you want to see the dawn and the most beautiful sunrise on the Adriatic you can pay a visit to the discotheque "Veneranda"...
More romantic types can follow the old road to Brusje until they reach a path that almost imperceptibly turns right and climbs to the astronomical observatory with the best position in Europe. You'll be able to watch the sun rising from the open sea replacing the stars, while peaks of little Hvar's archipelago islands emerge from the clouds. By far famous Pakleni Islands are situated just a couple of nautical miles away. Pakleni Islands are one of the most beautiful parts of the Croatian coast - playfull string of wooded islands dipped into the clear, azure sea, a couple of beaches, excursion centers and myriad of little hidden shores, sunny stone terraces and gorgeous lonely lagoons.
Bol on Brac Island
The third biggest island in the Adriatic sea, the Island of Brac is situated opposite of Hvar. You should visit Bol and it's Dominican monastery. Later, take a couple of relaxing hours and visit ''Zlatni rat'', a 600 meter long pebbly peninsula suitable for water sports and swimming with fun. Walking by the sea at night, you can visit some of the exhibitions of Croatian artists, see a fashion show, some fun competitions on Bol's main square or see a theatre play in people of Bol own production. And that's not all.
As the most popular surfing center in Croatia, with a rich offer of other sport activities, Bol is full of young people during the summer - always in the mood for a rich and joyfull night life. We recommend bars, night clubs and cocktail bars, most of them with quality dance floors. The most popular are cocktail bar „Varadero" and „Aquarius" (a favourite meeting place for surfers). After the bars - night life moves to the discotheque "Faces". Faces has a terrace with a big dance floor for 2000 people - attractive programme during the summer - lot's of performances by famous musicians, DJs and fashion shows.
Night life is very rich and diverse, specially during the summer season, when different cultural-entertaining programmes take place under the name of "Vodicko ljeto". On those days the restaurants, hotels, night clubs, city squares and streets are full of life, every step has a different thing going on. Concerts, plays, exhibitions, performances of folklore groups, Dalmatian ensambles take turns day by day, night by night. "Beauty boats" often come to port of Vodice during the summer; these are entertaining boats that are hosted by many musicians and celebrities.
As not so many places on the Adriatic, Vodice is an exciting place by day and by night. Rich in spirit it always offers something new and out of the ordinary. The traditional " Vodicka festa" takes place in August and it represents a good time and fun for everybody, without exceptions and limitations. Holiday Lady of Karmela (July 16) is specially celebrated. Discotheques „Hacienda" and „Mirakul" are opened during the season.
A unique mediterranean atmosphere of medieval architecture of compact stone houses and numerous of narrow streets, fragrant and transparent sea, crickets chirping, pine shadows and sunny beaches are the natural potentials that are long since cherished by people of Primosten. Night life in Primosten is filled with diverse entertaining and cultural events. With many concerts of local bands and Primosten's brass band, not far away from Primosten you can find the discotheque "Aurora", one of the nicest and biggest on the Adriatic.
