The intricately carved Venetian architecture and wide, welcoming seaside promenade of Hvar town has helped make Hvar island the chicest and most visited of southern Dalmatian islands. It's a top sight in Croatia and one of the country's most romantic spots. The island’s hub and busiest destination, Hvar town is estimated to draw around 20,000 people a day in the high season. It’s odd that they can all fit in the small bay town, where 13th-century walls surround beautifully ornamented Gothic palaces and traffic-free marble streets, but fit they do. Visitors wander along the main square, explore the sights on the winding stone streets, swim on the numerous beaches or pop off to the Pakleni Islands which are surrouded by crystal blue Adriatic sea. When the sun is about to sink into the horizon, bars, restaurants and cafes along the harbor swing into action, providing excellent wine, delicious food, tropical drinks and ambient music throughout the night.
A word of warning: Hvar is hot now and we don't mean the temperature (even though it is the sunniest spot in Europe with over 2715 hours of sunlight in an average year). From yachties to movie stars, everyone comes to Hvar. It is really sensational town and in the height of the summer season it is a real scene. You won't be bored!
