About Stari Grad
In Croatian language, Stari Grad literally means „The Old City“. The name suits well, as this urban settlement notes 2500 years of history, being founded by Greek explorers. Ever since then, the vivid cove of Hvar was a place of culture, trade and celebration of life.
In addition to lovely beaches and coastal localities, Stari Grad is known for a fort of nobleman Petar Hektorovic, a passionate writer and nature admirer, who even constructed a fish pond on his estate. The town’s historical core is a part of UNESCO’s World Heritage Site List, as well as central plain of the Island.
Visitors are invited to scuba-dive for pearls, enjoy local wine cellars and explore Hvar’s remarkable food offer.
