  STS081-747-34 Brac And Hvar Islands, Croatia January 1997
Extending from the upper right of the image, the long, narrow Hvar Island is visible in this southwest-looking view. The mountainous island covers an area of 111 square miles (288 square kilometers) and is forested. Grapes, olives, figs, and dates are grown in the island valleys. Marble is quarried. Fishing and tourism round out the economy of the island. North of Hvar Island in the upper right portion of the image is Brac Island (reference STS81-747-33). The rugged Dinaric Alps and the Dalmation Coast cover the bottom portion of the image. The Dinaric Alps, with its barren karst formations, divide the Dalmation Coast from the Bosnia-Herzegovina interior. With a moderate climate, the coastal regions are tourist areas. The coastal area is both rocky and sandy and the water is crystal clear to great depths. The Dalmation Coast has many bays and inlets. Snow covers the higher peaks of the Dinaric Alps.
