Hvar is also known as Croatian Madeira, offering a diverse and captivating experience both above and below the water. The name of the island is without doubt Greek in origin, from Pharos (lighthouse). From it the Romans derived the name Pharia. The Dalmatian Romans then derived from this Fara, and the newly settled Croats in the early Middle Ages changed this to Hvar.
It is situated in picturesque nature, facing the southern, side of the world that has given it all Mediterranean attraction and cheerfulness; facing sea and having the unique nautical position, that gave it amazing and unforgettable history, Hvar is an inexhaustible treasury of the scenery, atmosphere and adventure. Hvar is a unique fusion of luxurious Mediterranean nature, rich cultural and historical heritage, and mundane, tourist present.
