From Stari Grad to Hvar Town

Besides being rightfully proud for being the sunniest island in the Adriatic, the island of Hvar is famous for having the second oldest town in Croatia, Stari Grad. Evidence of this is the name that derives from the ancient name of Pharos, according to settlers from the island of Paros in the Aegean Sea. In addition to the embossed markings of the living culture of the ancient Greeks, the native Illyrians also left traces of their culture. Come and hear about the war stories of these two nations, the great Dionysius of Syracuse, and the love story of Demetrius of Pharos and the Illyrian Queen Teuta, and about his later betrayal. Next are stories and monuments from the Middle Ages on the arrival of the Croats and their migration to the southwestern part of the island Novi Grad, today’s Hvar, whose history dates back to Illyrian and Roman times (settlement of Heraclea). You will have the chance to see with your own eyes the cultural heritage they have left us.
