Every year, over 1,500 calendars are distributed, which are the work of Hvar artists. For this year, students from the Hvar Primary School and the Jelsa Primary School – Sveta Nedjelja Regional School were selected as artists from the Hvar Tourist Board, reports HrTurizam.hr.

The Tourist Board of the City of Hvar would like to thank all the Hvar and Jelsa Primary school students and teachers of the Elementary School Hvar with the principal Mrs. Nada Jeličić, as well as the students of the Sveta Nedjelja Regional School with their teacher Mrs. Katija Balić, who made a great contribution to the creation of calendars with their paintings. Many thanks also go to Ivan Zaninović – Grande Design, who managed to combine all the paintings into a beautiful whole, and the town of Hvar. 

This year the idea was to create something special, so we chose students from the Hvar Elementary School and the Jelsa Elementary School – Sveta Nedjelja Regional School as artists. Through children’s imagination and their view of the town of Hvar and Holy Sunday, a “top work of art” was created that will decorate a large number of walls in 2022 after the first reactions of Hvar residents, says Petar Razović, director of the Hvar Tourist Board.

Nada Jeličić, director of Hvar Elementary School, said she was especially pleased with another successful collaboration between the Hvar Tourist Board and Hvar Elementary School, where they want to include all students in the tourist promotion of Hvar, and show how the youngest Hvar residents see the beauties of their city.

The Tourist Board of the town of Hvar ends this year’s promotion of the destination and the tourist year by making a calendar, which was certainly one of the “special” and we can say successful because a total of 70% of tourist traffic from 2019, ie. 116,000 arrivals and 520,000 overnight stays were realized in the area of ​​the town of Hvar. 

For all who want to enjoy the work of the youngest Hvar artists, the calendar is available in the office of the Tourist Board of the town of Hvar, and is also available in digital form here.
