What are your interests and where else will you be before you are in either Hvar or Zadar? With only one night I would say Zadar because with Hvar you would have to worry about transit from Split to Hvar and back. With Zadar you are right there enjoying the city without any transit time.

2. Re: Which is better for a 2-day, 1-night stay - Hvar or Zadar?

Thanks Barry. Here's what my itinerary looks like for now:

It's a 8-day trip to Croatia.

Sat evening - Reach Zagreb

Sun - Zagreb

Mon - start from Zagreb, drive to Split via Zadar (stopover to see Sea organ)

Tue - Split

Wed - Split - Hvar

Thu - Hvar

Fri - Dubrovnik

Sat - Dubrovnik

Sun early morning - fly out from DBV

I was reading some guidebooks and it seems to me that Zadar has more things to do & see than Hvar. Any thoughts?

Thank you.

I would also do the Zagreb-Zadar-Split- Dubrovnik itinerary in the short time that you have and save the islands for next trip!
