Economy is based on tourism, farming, vineculture, olive growing and especially on cultivation of rosemary and lavender; fishing is an additional occupation of the rural population.

Though representing a part of the diverse southern Croatian archipelago, formed by numerous islands, since the earliest days Hvar has been the subject of special recognition, distinguished by both its natural beauty and its cultural strata.
It was chosen by the earliest prehistoric inhabitants because of it's pleasant climate and convenient havens and its arable land well-suited for cultivation, as well as for the defence and construction possibilities it offered.

Due to its mild climate, the scent of lavender and other aromatic herbs which fills the air, the island of Hvar has been known as a health resort since 1868.

Besides health benefits and natural beauties, the city of Hvar is famous for its cultural heritage. The biggest main square in Dalmatia (an area of 4500m2), with many renaissance and baroque palaces, dominates the city which is surrounded by fortification walls dating from the 7th century.
