Croatia’s Sunniest Island

Situated on the quieter side of the Croatian island of Hvar, nestled along the Maslinica Bay, Stari grad is a quaint town that is quite literally one of the oldest in Europe. Originally named Pharos by the ancient Greeks when it was founded in 384 BC, Stari Grad boasts a charming waterside promenade with shops and restaurants, as well as multiple historic sites. Enveloped in rich historical culture, Stari Grad will delight your senses and leave you feeling well-rested and at peace with visits to the 16th-century fortress home of a poet. (And if you’d like to see the livelier side of the island, the town of Hvar has you covered, too.)

Destination Highlights

    The promenade along the riva is filled with charming shops, cafes, and restaurants. Take an evening stroll to watch the boats, listen to waves lapping on the stone walls, and soak in the magical feel.

  • Tvrdalj Fortress

    Enjoy some peace and quiet at Tvrdalj. Originally the summer home of Croatian poet, Petar Hektoroić, this fortress boasts a fish pond and lovely garden—all surrounded by beautiful stone archways.

  • Stari Grad Plain

    Inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, this unique agricultural landscape was initially begun by the ancient Greek colonists in the 4th century BC. Meander the plain to take in the stone walls, citrus and olive trees, and grapevines.



  • Forecasting your Stari Grad Vacation
