Tourism in Croatia 2011: Ten Things Not to Miss on the Island of Hvar
As Croatia's premier island, Hvar is one of the most popular places on the Adriatic for a holiday, with tourists drawn to the party atmosphere of Hvar Town, its excellent sailing and beaches, as well as its historic old towns such as Vrboska, Jelsa and Stari Grad on the north coast.
