Stari Grad Hvar – Happy 2400th birthday

The picturesque Stari Grad on the isle of Hvar is a lovely little tourist town with long and layered history. This typical Mediterranean small town founded in 384 b.C. is this year celebrating its 2400thh birthday and throwing the largest party in the Med. This important anniversary will through culture, sport and entertainment events celebrate the history and ring in the future of Stari Grad. Since 2008 the city core has been on the UNESCO World Heritage list, as have the Stari Grad Plain and the island’s klapa a cappella music. The music is part of everyday life on the island, so don’t be surprised if you encounter singers in the street, singing for apparently no reason. The Stari Grad city orchestra is also celebrating a big anniversary this year – their 140th, which they will observe with summer-long concerts.

Children and young adults can learn how to play instruments during the Gitarastra summer school (until July 22). The island will turn into one giant diner on July 19, when the wine and bread days begins. The stage will move to Petar Hektorović’s summer villa on July 30, with the chakavian poetess recital, cellist Ana Rucner will hold a concert on the city promenade on August 5. The town’s favorite party, St. Rocco’s procession will take place on August 16, followed by the Stari Grad day celebration. The summer will end with the 41st Faros marathon, international open water swimming championship attracting numerous local European and international swimmers.
