Fodor's Review

As its name suggests, Stari Grad, or Old Town, is one of the oldest towns in Europe, founded in 384 BC. The site of the original Greek settlement on Hvar, called Pharos by the Greeks, it is a conglomeration of smaller communities. While the theme of many of the main attractions in Stari Grad focus on its ancient history, the city is still very much a living city throughout the whole year and offers a refreshing alternative to Hvar Town. It is also the entry-point to the island for bus transportation from the mainland, as well as the car ferry terminal. The town is 10 km (6 miles) east of Hvar Town.
