The Island of Hvar is one of a group of central Dalmatian islands and is the longest Croatian island, populated from early historic times. Other important settlements on the island are: Hvar, Stari Grad, Jelsa and Vrbovska. Economy are based on tourism, fishing and agriculture. The island is well known for its mild Mediterranean climate and record number of sunny hours. The summers are dry, warm and long, and the winters are mild and short so the temperatures below 0°C are very rare.
