Nowhere does the best of Croatia come together as it does on Hvar. Its natural beauty is undeniable… pristine sea (some say the cleanest in Europe), dramatic slopes of vineyard terraces, pre-historic caves, narrow stone streets, historic churches, castles, ruins, a UNESCO site, a multitude of outdoor sports and activities—all in a setting of grapes, olives, lavender, and breath-taking hills and coastline.
But Hvar also boasts an attractive modern side, offering vibrant nightlife, trendy cafés, restaurants, and hotels. The Dalmatian culture in all its culinary, musical, and lifestyle glory is ubiquitous here, as everywhere in Croatia. Life on Hvar is an interesting study in contrast: tranquility versus partying, solitude versus celebrity renown.
