Tourist destination info Vrboska - island Hvar

Vrboska is a small resort on the north shore of the island of Hvar. The town is located in the bottom of a deep fiord which is the cause of several bridges built on a small area. This is why Vrboska was named “Little Venice”. It was created in the 145th century as a port of the village Vrbanjani, when the locals decided to enrich their economy with fishing which was, until recently, the main economic activity of Vrboska. Typical Mediterranean architecture, old town houses with gothic, renaissance and baroque features, sacral spirit of ancient church buildings, as well as the luxurious contemporary villas gives the place a special charm. Be sure to visit historical sites such as St. Petar church (first mentioned in 1331, one of the oldest preserved churches on the island of Hvar), St. Lovrinac church (built in the 15th century, contains numerous images of famous renaissance and baroque artists), St. Mary church-fort (built by the first inhabitants, became a fort in 1575, which protected the place from the Turkish invasions), St. Roko church (built in 1577 in a gothic baroque style as a vow against plague) and Kastilac (watchtower from the 16th century). The “Fishing museum” is particularly interesting because it represents the long fishing tradition and the tough life the Vrboska locals have had in the past. Vrboska is famous for nice pebble and sandy beaches, clean air, crystal clear water and intact nature. The most beautiful beaches are located on the Soline peninsula (mostly pebble beaches), Maslinica cove (pebble beach) and the Zecevo island (nudist beach). Countless festivities and manifestations are organized in Vrboska during summer. Relax and enjoy the St. Lovre festivity, the summer carnival, mad vessels race and numerous other summer shows in Vrboska. Those in search of a more active vacation can enjoy cycling, tennis, basketball, handball, table tennis, mini golf, beach volleyball and many other activities. If you would like to savor the specialties of the island of Hvar as well as the Dalmatian cuisine, visit restaurants or taverns in Vrboska, such as the restaurant “Gardelin”, taverns “Bonaca” and “Lem”.

    Quiet town for beach holiday
    Vrboska is ideally located for beaches in the area. The town is rather quiet but has some good options for restaurants and bars. Despite its size it has a lively atmosphere and provides most services e.g. bank, shop, petrol, bakery. Highly recommend for affordable accommodation and quiet atmosphere but not too far from Stari Grad and Hvar either.
