There is quite a walk to the top but it is definitely worth the sweat. It is a small hike up an very clear and easy path to follow. You can go up to the top of the fortress which has a fee, however I...More

The walk up to this hilltop fort is something to do on a nice day. Once you climb some initial steps, the trail turns into a shaded, paved trail that winds its way up the hillside. When I arrived at the top, the fort was...More

Visited Hvar for a wedding and I was not disappointed. A friend of mine and I hiked up through the fortress making our way to the very top where you can look out across the Adriatic Sea. Easily one of the most beautiful places I've...More

Be warned, the walk is quite steep and it's really high up, but once you're up there, you can chill out at a nice little restaurant. The view of course, is definitely worth it. I think we ended up staying for an hour just checking...More

The fortress offers fantastic views of Hvar Town. The walk up the mountain is not very strenuous. There's even a cafe at the top. I wish there had been more literature, but there's a pamphlet that gives you some idea of its history. If you...More

Well worth the climb through the lovely gardens for the view alone! Entrance fee is reasonable and worth a mooch around. The best views to be had are after you've paid the entrance fee and look out from the fortress.

The fortress looks intimidating in its height and distance from the town, but it is actually an easy uphill walk and not too far. The trail winds back-and-forth along the hillside, so the slope is gentle and can be walked by visitors of all ages....More

After a long day sailing, an exploratory walk through the tiny, medieval and wonderfully dreamy streets of Hvar and the 20 minute hike through the park uphill to the fortress to watch the sun set over the Croatian Sea was the perfect highlight of the...More

You could easily do it in 1/2 a day. I would say 3 hours would be enough and it would allow you to explore more. Sunsets are beautiful for the fortress and I think the early morning would give great light for photos. Enjoy... More
