New York Times Reports on the Hvar Party

By 8 August 2017

After its visit to the island of Hvar last month, The New York Times reports on the Hvar party on August 8, 2017. 

HVAR, Croatia — The bucolic island of Hvar has a new, slightly threatening message to welcome this year’s tourist throng: Behave, or else.

Men, keep your shirts on in town, warn posters on prominent public display around the sun-swept island’s main town — or risk a fine of 500 euros (nearly $600). No drinking, eating or sleeping in public spaces (700 euros, about $825). Similar messages are embedded in the informational video shown on the ferry from the mainland, and featured in leaflets distributed along the pier.
