Croatian holiday spot to fine tourists €700 for some very odd reasons

Doesn't sound like much of a holiday...

Croatia is fast becoming one of the top holiday spots in Europe - its bustling cities and stunning lakes and beaches make it a must-visit destination.

But officials on one of the country's most popular tourist islands, Hvar, will be clamping down on 'anti-social behaviour' with some very harsh new rules.

Tourists could be fined up to €700 for bad behaviour, thanks to the island's new mayor Ricardo Novak.

According to The Daily Mail, anyone walking around in swimsuits in the island's  centre could be hit with a €600 fine.

Meanwhile, you could be made to pay €500 for walking around without a t-shirt.

The steepest fine of €700 is reserved for public drinking, eating or sleeping - so better not nod off on the beach!

Signs baring the warning 'Save your money and enjoy Hvar' have been erected around the island.

The new rules are an attempt to clean up island antics.

"They are vomiting in town, urinating on every corner, walking without T-shirts... crawling around, unconscious," the new mayor said last month of some of the island's visitors.
