At the beach; Near water
Hvar is a Croatian island not far from the coastal town of Split, an island with lush greenery, hills and a rugged coastline that hosts some of the most scenic beaches in the country.
On the south coast of the island there is the Hvar town, with historic sites, with amazing beaches as well and a most vibrant nightlife.
If you however feel at some point that it's just "wine o'clock", you should not deny yourself the chance of visiting the famous vineyards of the island, with the Plavac Mali grape for red wine and the Bogdanjuša for white wine. This way, you also get to see the historic towns of Jelsa and the beach side town of Zavala.
In the town of Hvar per se, it's surely a good idea to take a walk in the St. Stephen’s Square, sided by many shops and restaurants, and to visit the bell tower of the Cathedral of St. Stephen. The Hvar Public Theater is actually the first public theater opened in Europe, and has a historical significance. The same goes for the massive fortress of Fortica, overlooking the town of Hvar and offering a most stunning viewpoint that has you feeling like you literally stepped into a postcard.
Croatia is a jewel of the Old Continent, there is no doubt about that, and Hvar is a most beautiful gem that furthermore proves this to be true.
