Croatia is expecting a record tourist season this year, and promotion in leading media across the world will not harm those expectations…

Recently some of the world’s most read media, such as The New York Times, Huffington Post, The Telegraph and Business Insider have featured Croatia on ‘best-of’ lists. Now it is the turn of media a bit further a field to promote Croatia as a destination. One of the leading publications in Australia – The Australian – has included Hvar, off Croatia’s coast, on its Europe’s 10 Best Small Towns list.

Hvar Island seduces with Mediterranean waters as blue as a tropical cocktail, red-roofed villages and lavender-scented hillsides; its eponymous town combines a long history with a chic, contemporary yachting and bar scene that has made it the so-called St Tropez of Croatia. Explore marble-paved streets, monasteries, an overhanging fortress and medieval, coffee-scented St Stephen’s Square. Then plunder fashion boutiques and upmarket crafts stores, and stroll the promenades (preferably in gold necklaces and nautically themed designer duds if you want to blend in). Evenings are spent lolling in waterfront restaurants, nibbling on octopus salads or swordfish stuffed with fresh tomatoes, and mingling with beautiful people and suntanned yachties over cocktails at starlit rooftop bars. For island chic with a Renaissance backdrop, there’s no better spot – writes The Australian
