Since Hvar lies in the center of most of the sea routes, history has left here a lot of traces, maybe more than on any other Adriatic island. This fact made Hvar rich with cultural and historic monuments.

The discoveries from the caves of Grapce and Marko made possible for the archeologists to identify the Croatian culture (from around 3500 to 2500 B.C.).

The hand painted pottery with spiral motifs is among the most decorative artifacts that come from the pre-Illyrian times. It is a part of the Aegean culture that continued its development on the island Hvar.

Hvar is the island of heather, joy and crickets, the island of lavender, wisdom and wine, the island of rosemary and hidden little bays.

It is equally attractive in winter as it is during summer, with a pleasant Mediterranean climate, rich vegetation of palm trees, aloe, pines, laurel, vineyards, olive groves, magical and calm bays, pebbly beaches and islands filled with pleasant smells. With all these qualities Hvar attracts tourists all year round. If you want to get to know the island better and find out more about its history, you can join one of the guided excursions.
