Island Hvar

The island of Hvar is the longest and the sunniest island and one of the most beautiful islands in the world 
According to the most famous American tourist magazine “Travel + Leisure”, Hvar was included in the top 10 list of most favorable island destinations in the world and was proclaimed the most glamorous Adriatic island. Hvar is a unique combination of rich cultural and historic heritage, Mediterranean nature and modern tourist facilities.
The town of Hvar is the island’s main center. It is situated on the southern, sunny side of island, and can boast of having 150 year old tourist tradition. The beginnings of tourism on the island of Hvar are truly mythical, from Ancient Greek visitors to medieval scientists from Austria and Germany. Back in 1868, the Hygienist Society was founded in Hvar, with the aim of building a contemporary health resort.
This marked the beginning of organized tourism on the Mediterranean.
The island of Hvar is the longest and the sunniest island and one of the most beautiful islands in the world with numerous crystal clear beaches especially at the Devil’s islands.
The British newspaper The Guardian has selected the top Croatian islands for your Dream Holiday and one of them is Hvar.
Hvar is also one of the main destinations for celebrities like Beyonce Knowles, Jay Z, Solange Knowles, prince Harry, Bernie Ecclestone, Bill Gates, Roman Abramovich and many others world famous people.
The name Hvar derives from the Greek name for the island and town, that was located where today’s Stari Grad (Hvar became the island’s center in 13th century in its place) is located – PHAROS. Hvar gained its glory and power during the Middle Ages as an important port within the Venetian Empire. Thanks to its position on an
ancient sea route, history has left many traces on Hvar, more than on any other Adriatic island. Constant battles for the island only confirm its importance and the value of its territory.
The history of the island goes back to prehistoric times, proving the existence of life on the island even 6000 years ago. After the fall of Syracuse in the middle of the 4th century BC, Pharos remained unprotected and was taken over by the Illyrians. In 219 BC, the Romans conquered Pharos and renamed it Pharia. During Roman times,
numerous villae rusticae were built all over the island, mainly in Hvar, Stari Grad and around present-day Jelsa.
Some historians assume that, at that time, the Greek polis Heraclea was located on the spot of today’s town of Hvar.
In the early Middle Ages, Croats came to the island of Hvar, adding to the culture of the island. The Venetians conquered Hvar in 1420 and remained there until the fall of the Venetian Republic in 1797. At that time, Hvar became the main Venetian port on the eastern coast of the Adriatic
The Austrians came in 1797 and the French in 1806. In the second half of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, Hvar underwent a new revival, after being re-conquered by the Austrians. At that time, all of the ports on the island were renovated. Hvar became very important in nautical and tourism terms, thus already at that time there were four consulates in the town of Hvar: Greek, Parmesan, Papal, and Napolitan.
In 1858, the first meteorological station in Croatia was opened in Sv. Veneranda Monastery in Hvar. Getting to know the climate conditions facilitated the promotion of Hvar’s tourism. As a result, the first tourism association in Europe was founded in 1868.
In 1918, the island once again fell under the control of the Italians, all the way till 1921 when Hvar, along with the rest of Croatia became a part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, and after World War II, the Republic of Yugoslavia.
With the recognition of the independent Republic of Croatia (1992), Hvar acquired its new role in independent Croatia.
Outstanding palaces and churches, valuable paintings and sculptures, important literary and musical works that have been created since prehistoric time to the present are the result of the inexhaustible inspiration of the island of Hvar. Hvar is one of the cultural centers of Croatian Renaissance literature and belongs to one of four literature circles. Hanibal Lucić, Petar Hektorović, Vinko Pribojević, Mikša Pelegrinović… are only some of the protagonists of Croatian culture who lived and worked on the island.
The climate of Hvar is characterized by mild winters and warm summers. The yearly average air temperature is 16 °C (61 °F), 686 mm (27.0 in) of precipitation fall on the town of Hvar on average every year and the town has a total of 2800 sunshine hours per year. For comparison Hvar has an average of 7.7 sunshine hours per day while Dubrovnik has 7.2.
The sea temperatures average from the lowest readings in February of 14 °C (57 °F) to their warmest during summer, when the sea temperatures usually stay between 23 °C (73 °F) to 27 °C (81 °F).
