Widely regarded as one of the ten most beautiful places on earth, Hvar – the Queen of the Dalmatian Islands – has beautiful sandy beaches, untouched lagoons and a rich history of Mediterranean tradition, history and architecture.
With mild winters, pleasant summers and a host of historic monuments and buildings to admire, Hvar is a joy to explore. The 14th century cathedral, located on the eastern side of Pjaca – the town square – is built on the site of an early 6th century Christian church and is well worth a visit as it houses many late Renaissance paintings for visitors to look at. Away from the town centre there are plenty of beach hikes and walking trails to enjoy. A trip to the nearby Pakleni archipelago is highly recommended. Here you will find secluded white sand beaches and many pine groves to explore.
