Welcome to the site of the Tourist Board of Jelsa
An eccentric example of the creative spirit at work in the magical little town of Jelsa!
One of Hvar’s unusual treasures, an ancient olive tree set in beautiful countryside.
Jelsa’s Cultural-Artistic Society plays an active part in the community, especially keeping folklore traditions alive.
Folk tales are an interesting and colourful part of local history and beliefs everywhere in the world, not least on Hvar.
The incessant mating call of Hvar’s cicadas on hot summer afternoons is surprisingly relaxing.
Films on a big screen have a charm of their own. In summer, watching a film under the night sky is a special delight.
