In this challenging tourist year, when the Croatian tourism sector's goal was to promote Croatia as a safe destination and the desire to achieve the best tourist results, the prestigious American monthly Travel + Leisure
magazine (more than 3 milion monthly readers) ranked the island of Hvar in the TOP 20 best European islands
Hvar has earned a prominent position in the society of the islands of Mílos, Folegandros and Santorini (Greece), Madeira (Portugal), Sicily (Italy), and others.
The editorial board of Travel + Leisure magazine which, along with National Geographic Traveler and Conde Nast Traveler, is one of the most influential travel magazines in the world, decided to compile this list of 20 islands, emphasizing that on Hvar is possible to meet a rich history and culture, taste the famous Hvar wines and stay in top accommodation.
There were almost as many Americans on Hvar as in pre-pandemic 2019.
, director of the Hvar Tourist Board, emphasizes that:
- "Hvar is again recognized as a destination by the breadth of its offer and the highest tourist criteria it offers to visitors."
He adds that this recognition was greatly helped by the Safe stay in Croatia project of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, and that tourists from the United States in July and August in the overall structure of arrivals and overnight stays recorded results similar to 2019.
