The island Hvar is distinguished as one of the most richly historical islands off the coast of Central and Southern Dalmatia in Croatia. Hvar accommodation is varied with sea views, self catering villas Hvar with pools and Hvar apartments. Close to Hvar lie the popular holiday islands Korcula and Brac. A great place to stay and relax in your Hvar holidays. The main city Stari Grad dates back to 400 years B.C. and gracefully hosted Venice’s navy as an Adriatic outpost during the height of the Renaissance. This brought with it a cultural richness that is evident to visitors to this day. Yet strangely, constant rebuilding seems to have done Hvar accommodation a good turn. It’s low-storied buildings of white adobe shine brilliantly for tourists ferrying in, and it's well worn yet smooth and brilliant marble-made cobblestones breathe history and culture at every step. Pacing through this relic of the past, the intrepid traveler will be delighted to hear an occasional sound of the cello being played, as many of Hvar’s institutions offer intensive music lessons during the summer to locals and holiday makers – and some throughout the year. The teacher will give a demonstration and the students set in on their string instruments, the Hvar pedestrian will do best to move on.
