Stari Grad is the oldest city in Croatia, a peer of Aristotle. It is situated at the end of a bay 4 nm deep, along the northwest coast of Hvar. Due to its central position, it has been a seamen's sanctuary for centuries; today, the Stari Grad cove is an obligatory stop for sailors cruising the Adriatic. The city is surrounded by vineyards, olive tree orchards and pine woods. Its population's main occupations are wine making, olive oil production, pomiculture, fishing and especially tourism. Various options for accomodation; taverns and restaurants serving domestic specialties and traditionally fine island wines; cultural landmarks, as well as the variety of sports and recreational activity options, attract numerous visitors. The sea around Stari Grad is renowned for its rich flora and fauna. Underwater fishing is possible along the southern coast of Kabel peninsula, which closes around the bay. Stari Grad is not protected against northern winds. Within the Stari Grad bay, the coves Zavala and Tiha offer shelter from these northern winds; the coves Gračište, St. Ante and Maslinica offer shelter from the southern winds.
Hvar is one of the most desired and most visited destinations on the Dalmatian riviera. It is characterized by a warm, pleasant climate with lots of sun, a picturesque natural environment, various options for quality accomodation, Mediterranean cordiality and hospitality, numerous restaurants and taverns offering exquisite domestic specialties and wines, sports and recreation possibilities, an active night life... Thanks to its position along the ancient maritime route, Hvar has a far richer history than any other island on the Adriatic. Representative palaces and churches, valuable paintings and statues, as well as literary and musical works of art created on the island, are a result of the inexhaustible inspiration the island provides. The city port has low protection against stronger winds.
