Hvar is a Croatian island located in the Adriatic Sea, off the Dalmatian coast, lying between Brac, Korcula and Vis islands. Approximately 68 km (42.25 miles) long, with high east-west ridge of Mesozoic dolomite and limestone, Hvar Island is unusual in the region for having fresh water springs and a vast fertile coastal plain. Island's hillsides feature pine forests, vineyards, fruit orchards, lavender fields and olive groves in the agricultural areas. Hvar's climate is characterized by warm summers with a lot of hours of sunshine, and mild winters. The population is around 11,100 residents, making it Croatia's 4th most populated island.
The location of Hvar Island at the center of Adriatic sailing routes has made it a major base for commanding trade across to Italy and throughout the Mediterranean. Hvar has been inhabited since pre-historic times, at first by Neolithic people whose distinctive pottery gave rise to Hvar culture, and later by Illyrians. Ancient Greeks founded the Pharos colony in 384 BC on the site of Stari Grad, making it one of the oldest European towns. They were responsible for setting out agricultural field divisions of Stari Grad Plain, currently a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Hvar city rose in medieval times to importance within Venetian Empire as a naval base of great importance. Prosperity brought culture and arts, with one of Europe's first public theatres, nobles’ palaces and fine communal buildings.
