Vrh Sveti Nikola - Hvar

Saint Nicholas

Saint Nicholas is the highest peak of the island of Hvar (626m). Svirče is located to the north of the peak, and Sveta Nedjelja is located to the south.

At the very peak, there is the church of St. Nicholas, which was built by Matija Ivanić (leader of Hvar insurrection) in 1487, and a large stone cross set up in 1998 to commemorate the founding of the Diocese of Hvar-Brač-Vis.
