How to Reach Hvar 


http://www.tzhvar.hr/en/how/



* If you decide to take the ferry from Split instead of the catamaran, the ferry will take you to Stari Grad on the island of Hvar from where you will need to reach the town of Hvar; you will find the bus schedule on the above link. There is a simplified boat schedule there as well.



Boat Schedule

* There are two ways to reach Hvar from Split; ferry and catamaran.


The ferry travels longer and takes you to Stari Grad on the island of Hvar, while the catamaran is faster and takes you directly to the town of Hvar, which is of course a more convenient option. 


Depending on what suits you better pick one of the two options in the Jadrolinija search engine: Split – Stari Grad will give you the ferry schedule while Split – Hvar will give you the catamaran schedule.

Currency


The unit of Croatian currency is the Kuna (HRK). Croatian banknotes come in denominations of 1,000 (rare), 500, 200, 100, 50, 20 and 10. 1 kuna = 100 lipa. There are coins of 1, 2 and 5 kuna plus coins of 50, 20, 10, 2 and 1 lipa. Try to avoid banknotes of 500 as they can be difficult to change.

1 Euro = 7.43 HRK
