Stari Grad Guide

The Croatian town of Stari Grad is located on the northern side of the island of Hvar in the Dalmatia region of Croatia. It lies at the end of a long protected bay and is thought to be one of the oldest towns in Europe. The ancient parts of the town were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Because of Stari Grad's position in the middle of the Hvar island, it has been a safe haven to sailors for centuries. Stari Grad bay is still regularly visited by most people travelling by boat through middle Dalmatia. A stroll through Stari Grad's centre, characterised by narrow streets and small squares, evokes a sense of the past. The most outstanding building in Stari Grad is Tvrdalj, a large and well preserved fortified castle once belonging to the noted Croatian poet, Petar Hektorovic. Notice the Latin and Croatian inscriptions in the walls and the statue of Petar Hektorovic in front of the castle.

From the town's port, ferry services operate to Pescara, Ancona, Rijeka, Korcula, Dubrovnik and Mljet.
