About Hvar


Hvar is an island in Croatia, in front of the eastern Adriatic coast. It belongs to the Central Dalmatian islands.

Due to the large number of sunny days, it is often called Sunny Hvar.

The name of the island today is of Greek origin. From this name the Romans formed the name Pharia. Dalmatian Romans turned it into Fara, and in the early Middle Ages, the immigrant Croats replaced the consonant f with the consonant group hv, and changed its name to Hvar.

The locals call it "Hvor" (in Stari Grad), "For", and the standard form "Hvar" occurs in the eastern part of the island, where locusts from the continent subsequently settled.
