Hvar Island (Croatia)

With total population around 11,000, Hvar is ranked Croatia's 4th most populated island. It has been inhabited since pre-historic times - first by Neolithic people and later by the Illyrians. In 384 BC, Ancient Greeks founded here their Pharos colony (current Stari Grad / Old Town - a UNESCO World Heritage Site).

During medieval times (Venetian Republic, 8th-18th century), Hvar City became an important naval base. The port's prosperity brought culture and arts. Then was built one of Europe's first public theatres.
