With its long and rich history Hvar has become a favourite holiday destination in which intertwine relaxed Mediterranean lifestyle and rich cultural heritage. Agave lace is the most recognizable product of this gorgeous island, made exclusively by Benedictine nuns in town of Hvar. The coast of so-called Sunny Hvar is illuminated by sunshine for more than 2800 hours per year and is full of indented bays. Hvar’s beaches are crowned with relaxing greenery of almost untouched nature. Its port, in summer months swarming with boats and ships, keeps a long history of sailors and fisherman who there sought shelter. The name of the island comes from the Greek word Pharos (lighthouse) that Romans changed into Pharia, and later Dalmatian Romans later into Fara.
