Shopping in Hvar Island - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

Hvar harbor The first and most popular purchase in Hvar is a bag of lavender. Perhaps, the island is one of the largest suppliers of lavender not only in Croatia but all over the world. The linen bags are multifunctional. Put under the pillow, they improve the quality of sleep and reduce the irritability, if left among the linens – they give a soft fresh fragrance to the clothes. Herbal collections with lavender and lavender oil, widely used in cosmetology, are also popular. Many believe that oil from lavender can help with a number of diseases. Lavender soap will become a good souvenir, which will remind you of a trip to the island.
According to the archeologists, Hvar was inhabited three thousand years before our era. If you do not believe it, then go to the Grapceva cave. This was the place where the remains of a … Open
Such island souvenirs, as flavored sea salt in a beautiful package and all sorts of crafts from the corals, are very popular among the tourists. A very authentic, truly Croatian souvenir is the Morčić jewelry. They are sold in large quantities in the form of pendants, trinkets, earrings. Unchanged is only the form – the head of the Moor in the turban. Previously, such decorations were made from wood and presented to sailors and fishermen as a symbol of luck. Now also precious metals, semiprecious stones, and ceramics can be used.
Another truly Croatian souvenir is the Vuchedol pigeon. This is an unusual form of a cult vessel, associated with a large number of local rituals and traditions, many of which have already become history. A miniature copy of the Istarski kažun also refers to the past. Kazun was called a shed, built right in the field, where the farmers kept inventory and waited until the rain would stop. A product from white limestone from the neighboring Brac island can also become a good souvenir. The local people believe that the things made of it can protect the owner from the evil spirits.

The fountain pen "Nalivpero" can be considered another truly Croatian thing. It was invented by an engineer from Zagreb – Slavoljub Penkala. Such a thing can be presented to anyone! You can find a fountain pen in any souvenir shop. If you want to buy a souvenir for your friend or a loved one, then take a closer look at the local ties. A tie is an unchanged part of the national costume for the Croats. Previously, this accessory was even a part of the military uniform. Local lace will be a great gift for a woman. Local paintings can become an interesting souvenir for the art connoisseurs.
View of Hvar from Fortica If you want to do something nice for your loved one, then get them a Licitar heart. A cake, very similar in composition to honey gingerbread, has a heart shape for a reason. Traditionally, the Croats give it to the one they propose to become their wife. Other local sweets are not less tasty – gingerbread, chocolate with chili, and jam from dry figs. Not sweet delicacies, which you should bring from the island, are prsut, kulen, and local cheese.

Among alcoholic beverages, first of all, it is worth paying attention to wine. Here it is sold in abundance, and when choosing, you should be guided only by your own taste. Many people advise buying Croatian light beer. From strong drinks, do not bypass the Maraschino liquor and Lozovac vodka. Slivovica and Travarica, infused on herbs, are also very nice.
Hvar Port There are no large shopping centers on the island. It is better to buy clothes and accessories from the world's leading brands in the mainland of Croatia. Moreover, if you want to arrange a day of real shopping, then the journey won’t take much time, while the prices on the mainland are lower and the choice is much greater. Hvar is famous for its own craftsmen and local goods. For example, wine from the winery Zlatan Otok. Remember that here in any souvenir shops and small stores you can and should bargain.
