Vrboska is an old village situated in the central part of the island of Hvar, which lies at the bottom of a long cove. Established in the 14th century, its Renaissance stone and Baroque houses seem to be coming from the sea giving it special charm. Sometimes it seems as if the whole town is a big museum.


Stone bridges connect the two halves, which are dominated by the fortified 16th century church of Saint Mary, built after the Turks destroyed the place in 1571. The Saint Lawrence’s church guards the greatest works of art by Paolo Veronese, Titian, Bassano, Alabardi and Medovic. The fishing museum which is unique on the whole Dalmatian coast guards the memories of the fishing and agricultural history of the village.
