The magical island of Hvar


There are many beautiful places and towns in Croatia that I want to introduce you to. This time I decided to show you the sunniest and very attractive island Hvar. This island belongs to the Middle-Dalmatian island group and it is located near Split which a ferry line connects to the lovely island.

The length of the island is 68 kilometres and its whole surface is 300 square kilometres. The island’s biggest centre is the City of Hvar and after that Jelsa, Stari Grad, Sucuraj and other small places.

Last summer I spent a few days at Hvar with my family and friends and I can say that it was one of the most beautiful vacations ever.

My friend’s parents are the owners of a house in Vrboska, close to Jelsa where we were staying. Almost every day we made small car tours around the island to experience its beauty.

Every town and village on the island has its own charm and beauty. Each one of the stone houses, churches, streets and plazas tell their own stories and showcase the soul of every place we visited. We enjoyed the delicious Mediterranean food in restaurants by the shore and those in the narrow streets.

Tourism is the main activity of the locals and besides that, the residents of Hvar do viticulture, aquaculture and olive production. There, like in many other Mediterranean places, rosemary and lavender fields are very common.
