Things to do in  Hvar

Welcome to Hvar

An island haven in the midst of the glittering Adriatic Sea, there are lots of things to do in Hvar, Croatia’s coastal crown jewel. The 17th-century cathedral reigns over a smooth, sandstone plaza, while charming restaurants serve local staples such as black truffle, octopus, and prosciutto. By day, island hop on a private yacht or catamaran, stopping to swim and snorkel at some of the 17 islands that make up the Pakleni archipelago; by night, Hvar’s clifftop Spanish Fortress affords panoramic views of the Dalmatian Coast, while beachfront bars offer a slice of Croatia's renowned nightlife.

As you glide into Hvar’s port, you cannot miss the imposing Spanish Fortress that crowns the island’s main settlement.

Cathedral of St. Stephen (Hvar Cathedral)

Cathedral of St. Stephen (Hvar Cathedral)

star-52,346
There’s no better place to take in the essence of Hvar than in its main plaza while admiring the Cathedral of St. Stephen also known as the Hvar Cathedral. Set upon a backdrop of green hillside, the church you see today was built between the 16th and 17th centuries, with elements of an even older church still preserved inside.Though the cathedral boasts a relatively humble interior, it is noted for its attractive altars, late Renaissance paintings, and 15th-century wooden choir stalls. For most, though, it’s the exterior that really leaves the biggest impression, with its scalloped rooftop and four-story, 17th-century bell tower that both grandly watch over the expansive limestone plaza that rolls out to the Adriatic Sea.More

Malo Grablje

Malo Grablje

star-536
In the 1950s, the last remaining residents of Malo Grablje left their village behind for better opportunities on the coast. Today, the Hvar village stands abandoned, tucked in a valley surrounded by terraced fields and steep hills. Nature has been reclaiming the village for decades — trees grow through walls, shafts of sunlight pour through holes in the roofs and wildflowers grow freely.While most of Malo Grablje’s former residents now live on the coast in Milna, one resident, Mr. Berti Tudor, moved back and restored his family home where he now operates a traditional Hvar restaurant.More
