Stari Grad is a popular location that is a gateway to the Paklenica National Park and lies around 45 km to the north east of Zadar. The city is situated on the northern side of the island of Hvar in the Dalmatia region of Croatia and lies at the east of a long protected bay and is thought to be one of the oldest towns in Europe. Buses make the town easy to reach, stopping in the centre, as well as outside of the Hotel Alan on the Dr. Franje Tudmana. Many people come to Stari Grad to take advantage of the plentiful camp sites there, especially since the adjacent National Park does not permit camping.
By wandering around Stari Grad's centre, along its narrow streets and through small squares, it is not hard to appreciate its historic past and perhaps its most popular attraction is Tvrdalj, which is a large a well preserved castle that once belonged to the 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.
