With a wine heritage dating back 2,400 years to the Ancient Greeks who founded the oldest town in Croatia in Stari Grad, to Hvar’s wonderfully recuperative climate, which helped establish the oldest organised tourism in Europe in 1868, Hvar has the natural resources to provide the very best in a holiday experience. Add to that some of the world’s best beaches and cleanest sea (CNN voted Jerolim its number one naturist beach in 2011), some of the best nightlife on the Adriatic, a strong activity programme and a fascinating cultural and heritage offer, and is it not hard to see understand why Lonely Planet named Hvar its number 5 destination for 2012.
