Saturday night at FOR 2013 sees Croatian label Burek light the island of Hvar up with their very own party. In light of this and to get the fans and the uninitiated ready, Pytzek, label co-owner and deck legend in his own right, mixed up this monster Modcast with a special all-Burek edition.
The other half of the Burek ownership and Hvar local, Mislav, also put together a bit of a guide for those visiting Hvar for the first time or looking to explore the place a little deeper. Full details after the jump, as well as the full Modcast tracklist.
Mislav coincidentally DJ'd the maiden night at FOR 2013 venue and Hvar staple Veneranda around 20 years ago. He continues "Believe it or not, I was the DJ on the opening night of Veneranda and the DJ booth was then in that chapel. The club was owned by my dad's very good friend. The big shot DJ from Zagreb's major club failed to show up and I had some cd's in my car. so, this is an interesting twist so to say."
His top 5 tips on the local surrounds are as follows:
1. Total Hvar
Great blog for english speakers covering a wide range of topics on the island's life. Easy way to understand more about local people and way of life on Hvar.
2. Konoba Vrisnik
There are so many 'konobas' (taverns) on island of Hvar but, somehow I always go back to these guys. Family run place serving great and consistent quality food year after year in fantastic picturesque setting.
3. Hvar Adventure
All you 'active' people looking for thrill and sweat, this is a place to check.
4. Otok Vina
Wines on hvar can be truly fantastic. For easier navigation through whats being offered and to find the good ones, look here for best winemakers on the island
5. Around the Island
Town of Hvar being such beautiful place is not the only thing Island of Hvar has to offer. There are many more smaller towns and villages waiting to charm you. Rent a car or a scooter and go discovering. Towns like Starigrad, Jelsa, Vrobska and villages such as Brusje, Vrbanj, Svirce, Vrisnik, Pitve and so on are all within 45 mins drive from town of Hvar.
