this is how i imagine the cote d'azure in the 60ies. apart from the music in the night clubs, one might think that you have time travelled back in time to a beatiful place with wooden boats and stone villas

The island of Hvar is one of top spots to visit in Croatia. An exciting island, some 50 kilometres long, offers various joyfull places to visit. Visiting Hektorovic castle in Stari Grad or Franciscan monastery in town of Hvar is a good choice when looking for cultural sites out of the season. Don't miss to taste wines from southern site...

Hvar island was a very nice day trip. You could stay here a few days if you want to just kick back by the beach, but otherwise it's easily do-able in one day. We arrived early in the AM, hiked up to the fortress first thing. It was hot and the hike wasn't 'short'. Lots of uphill, but getting it... More

Hvar is a beautiful place, but we made the mistake of visiting on a Sunday during the offseason. Many shops and restaurants were closed, and in general many attractions were not open during this time of year. I can imagine in the summer this is one of the top places to visit in Croatia.
