The sunniest, the biggest, the oldest. Three most common superlatives used when describing island and town Hvar. Every real Foranin (person originally from Hvar) and the one that recently moved to the island will know that and will tell you about it with great pride.
We will start our tour with a car transfer to the Fortress for the best view (and Instagram photo) of the town and Pakleni islands. Then we will return to the town center to really get to know Hvar.
These are some of the highlights: Sv. Stephen’s square or Piazza, The Place where locals meet, living room of Hvar. Theatre in the Arsenal building, after being closed for renovation for over 20 years, this year it finally opened its doors for visitors, audience and actors. Elegant city Loggia and the old Palace hotel, once Austrian Empress Sissi’s spa hotel, now being renovated into its old glory as Palace Elisabeth heritage hotel, Hvar’s first 5 star hotel! Old streets and Benedictine nunnery, where nuns keep the secret of their unique handicraft which is now a part of UNESCO Cultural Heritage of Humanity - lace making of agave threads. Renaissance nobility, poets like Hanibal Lucic and Petar Hektorovic left their marks not only in Croatian literature but also in town’s architecture. Ivan Vucetic, Hvar born father of dactyloscopy and many more interesting facts. Who would say that Hvar, the “party island” as many like to call it nowadays, has such a rich history.
Play a little game with us and connect the words from the beginning (and many more) with stories and facts behind it with help of our expert guides who turn history into present in an interesting and easy way.
