Hvar Dalmatian Island, Croatia (6/22-24/2009)

Hvar is one of the greenest Croatian Dalmatian Islands with patches of lavender, rosemary, and heather. 

Hvar Island boosts to have the most sunshine days in Croatia. Well, not so much for us. We had two days of rain before an absolutely beautiful sunny day.

Built in the 13th century, Hvar town is very nice with a fortress above the old town. The town square (Trg Sveti Stjepana – see photo) is one of the largest in Croatia and the first night we rocked out at a concert of a local band that is now well known across Croatia.

We took a small boat to Palmizana (sounds like the cheese you put on spaghetti) on the Pakleni Islands (see photo). What a wonderful place! 

Hvar Island and especially Hvar town is one of the most popular destinations in the Adriatic. During the season (May to September) it can be very busy, especially during August when large numbers of Italians visit. 

Hvar was relatively cheap, without an extensive tourist infrastructure, and it attracted a lot of young people. However, this is changing as large five star hotels are being built and the standard of living in Croatia is rising.

The food in Croatia’s Dalmatian Islands and Coast can be summed up by two main choices - meat or fish or if you want something different... fish or meat. Italian influence from centuries of Venetian rule is also present with pastas and get this: some of the best restaurant pizza Pat and I have ever had.

On this trip, we island hopped the Croatia Dalmatian Islands. We took a ferry from Brac to Hvar Island.
