10 Things that Amaze about Hvar's Oldest Town, Stari Grad, Croatia

By 11 April 2023

April 11, 2023 - Continuing our video journey through the magical land of Croatia, 10 things that amaze about Hvar's oldest town of Stari Grad.

It was the first capital of Croatia's Premier Island.

It has its very own UNESCO World Heritage Site.

And SO much more...

I have been watching Stari Grad and its development since 2002 after I bought a house on Hvar. The slow transition to high-quality tourism has taken time, and the investments have been significant, but the results are there.

If you are looking for a destination reachable from Split which is actively shunning party tourism in favour of families, foodies, activities and sailors, Stari Grad on Hvar should be on your radar.

Find out why in this video on what I think make Stari Grad so special.

This video was made in paid partnership with the Stari Grad Tourist Board - find out more about this destination on the official website -
