Hvar ♥ the lovely little pearl!
This is one of the many islands that lie outside Split, it's a beautiful place. With beautiful scenery, nature, views, buildings, and so much more. It is worth to visit!
Lived here for 2 weeks and it is absolutely amazing! The people are nice, the food is good and everything is really quite good, apart from shopping.
Things to do: visit the fortress, there's an amazing view. Visit the small Ouen on the outside of Hvar, here is the incredible scenery, which is protected. The benefit day at the beach. Or maybe you would see around you in the wonderful city of Hvar!
Carpe Diem beach club is a fantastic place, well worth a visit! Wonder something more, at my side of Hvar!
HVAR - Hvar is the fourth...
HVAR - Hvar is the fourth largest island at 182 square miles (300 square km). It is even sunnier than Brac. However, there is enough rain to keep the island green and to maintain the beautiful fields of lavender, rosemary, sage, marjoram and thyme and carefully cultivated vineyards. When in Hvar, you must purchase some lavender oil the major export of the island.
Of historical interest is that the oldest (prehistoric) relief of a ship in Europe was found here. Also, the oldest community theater was founded here in 1612. Other architectural and historic attractions include the Renaissance cathedral with its original tower, treasury and paintings by old masters, the unfinished palace of the poet Petar Hektorovic, and many other 'must-see' buildings.
The town of Stari Grad on Hvar was founded in 385 BC under the name of Pharos as a Greek colony. Attractions definitively include the remains of the Greek fortifications and the fortified castle of Petar Hektorovic with its ponds and arcades. The unique Fishing Museum and architectural harmony of Vrboska is also something that will attract visitors' attention. Hvar is, no doubt, an exceptional island, both in summer and winter. Due to its mild winter climate and rich subtropical vegetation, it has also been called the Croatian Madeira.
When in town Hvar you must visit: the town’s main square, the cathedral of St. Sephan, the Franciscan monastery, the Hektorovic palace, the summer residence of Hanibal Lucic ….
