Night Sky tour of Hvar - truly outstanding !
Aug 2019
A less well known side of Hvar, is how well suited it is to star gazing. The skies are stunningly clear, which lends itself to some out of this world star gazing on the hills above. Because of these clear skies, Hvar has its own Observatory ( which you can’t visit as a tourist) and so we came by this company who organise stargazing evenings.

It is run by a very knowledgeable Astro physicist called Yasha who just happens to work at the observatory and on occasion undertakes some advisory work with NASA!

One of Yasha’s charming team took us to the hill top, which has panoramic views of Hvar from the other, non touristic side where we caught the sunset. Yasha then gave us a very informative and easy-to-follow presentation about Astronomy, before we headed to the telescope - a marvellous modern piece of machinery which linked to a software to point exactly towards what we wanted to see. We were very lucky to have Jupiter and Saturn within our sight and Yasha went on to show us stars and constellations together with far flung galaxies which were as far as 2.5 million light years away. Truly remarkable.

It was such an enjoyable and informal evening where we were given the opportunity to literally see what was going on above us in real time, by a team of enthusiasts who supported a very knowledgeable, highly regarded scientist. I would highly recommend anyone to experience this !

Thank you team!

Super!
A night to remember! We had a lovely and welcoming evening with Jasa and his team, giving our teenager and us a great experience! We had a great view of a lot of planets, stars, constellations and even galaxies we didn’t know existed.
Jasa obviously knows a lot, Hvar is a lovely place to relax and this is a great thing to do!

Absolutely exciting!

We had Night Sky Tour during our vacation on Hvar. It was absolutely great experience. First we were greeted by Tibor and Josko. They told us about the plan of the tour and told interesting stories about Hvar and nearby islands. Than we watched the sunset from the restaurant Panorama which is one of the best places to watch it. The next thing in the plan was the supper with super delicious Dalmatian delicacies, had super tasty octopus salad and cheese + prsut platter, great local olive oil. I was a driver that day, but my girlfriend especially praised white wine. Once we were full we were ready for stargazing. Tibor and Josko are super friendly, they explained how the telescope works and aligned it. I'm an amateur astronomer and I must say I was impressed with the quality of the optics to say the least. Never seen the Jupiter with so much detail. Absolutely fantastic! This Night Sky Tour was one of the best moments in our vacation on Hvar. Even if you're not experienced astronomer it's a great fun to observe the planets of our solar system, the stars and even the deep sky objects such as M57 (look that up!) and you'll hear the background about the objects you see. If you ever have a chance don't even hesitate for a moment. To observe the objects with your own eyes is not only exciting but very inspiring. To think that you can see nebula's or clusters which are millions of light years away from Earth is a great experience. If we will ever visit Hvar again we'll definitely repeat it! If you're an amateur astronomer or even interested in Sci-Fi and Space, Night Sky Tour is a MUST! :)
