Text size Aa Aa

The Croatian island of Hvar has had enough of rowdy tourist turning the classy destination into a “boozed-up free-for-all.”

Hvar’s new mayor has introduced a raft of fines to encourage visitors to behave more appropriately.

Not wearing a top could cost you 500 euros. Wandering around in a swimsuit: 600 euros. Drinking in public: 700 euros.

Croatia’s tourism industry accounts for 18 percent of the country’s gross domestic product.

Hvar’s mayor said young people who know how to behave are welcome.
