Hvar City Theatre Days, a scientific conference established in 1974 through the initiative of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts, present day Književni krug from Split, The Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Zadar, and the city of Hvar, is a unique national manifestation within which Croatian literature and theatre have been systematically studied.
Under the trademark on the building of the Hvar theatre, which was opened in 1612 as the first communal theater in Europe, every May Croatian and European literature historians and specialists in theatre studies bring out new knowledge from wide areas of their specific fields.
The first twelve scientific and theatre conferences were exclusively dedicated to themes from theatre studies; later on, for several years, conferences were focused on monographic interpretations of individual authors from older Croatian literature, while more recently, the authors approached systematic analysis of stylistic periods within the development of the national literature and theatre.
Scientific presentations and discussions follow theatre plays which, in compliance with their possibilities, completely supplement literary-historical, as well as theatrological research.
Collections of papers from the conferences of Hvar City Theatre Days which bring integral texts of studies presented at these scientific meetings, today represent an unavoidable, and therefore frequently and thoroughly quoted treasury of materials, studies, and discussions for the study of Croatian literature and theater.
