What you will experience
Go through the old manuscripts and naval maps, as witnesses of the site’s cultural past. Look through the telescope in one of the most important historical observatories in the country. Maybe you will also be amazed by the collection of arms or the old printing press. Be aware that here was one of the most important observatories in Croatia, which cooperated even with the observatory in Greenwich, London.
Imagine travelling through past when you enter the intact historical buildings of Stari Grad. You can only appreciate the amazing work the Greeks left behind when they divided the Stari Grad Plain, making it a beautiful example of the way their genius touched the land.
In the Dominican Monastery find “The Mourning of Christ,” a famous painting by the Venetian artist Jacopo Tintoretto. Also, look for the tomb of the Croatian poet Petar Hektorović and a great collection of incunabuli (the first printings of books).
Taste some delicious food at the local restaurant “Jurin podrum.” Its host Silvija will prepare your dishes according to Croatian tradition, but enriched by her experience from living in London. Taste wonderful domestic food, which will only round off this beautiful experience
