Worth the long walk up the hill to explore the fort. The walk took us through so pretty streets in Hvar that we would not otherwise have explored. We were very pleased to find a cafe at the fortress though, as we hadn't taken water with us! Great panoramic view for holiday snaps. Interesting to explore the fortress, don't miss... More

The fortress has magnificent views of the surround Hvar town, islands and hills. Some interesting historical discoveries but nothing that makes this fort any different to those thorough Europe.

My daughter and I thought we would get up early and see the sunrise, as it turns out Hvar isn't the best place for sunrise. I didn't check and the fort doesn't open until 08:30, (sr-05:00) as it was it didn't matter as there is a dirty great mountain behind the fort anyway.

It's worth it tot climb up there, and the fort looks nice but the museum is not interesting at all. Better spend your Money on something else

The walk to the top didn't take long (though there are quite a few stairs which some may find difficult). The views from the top of the fortress are amazing! The entry fee is about 30 kuna, but it's totally worth it for the view.

The ticket is around 4/5 euro. Amazing views for pictures and you better go at sunset ! You can go there by car or walk from the old city around 10 minutes.There is a small room with old vases discovered in the sea.

Well worth the walk up the hill - it took us about 20 minutes, it's a long uphill but is a path rather than steps straight up. Entry was 30 kuna into the fortress - there are great views on the way up but make sure you go in for the best way to see hvar harbour. The bar inside... More

Up high at the Hvar Fortress indeed you do get the best view of the beautiful Hvar Island. This was definitely one of the best moments in Hvar where you can glimpse over the harbor and its neighboring islands. Up there you can sit and relax at a very nice and cozy lounge style cafe which offers a pretty decent... More
