  • Worth a visit without a doubt. With all of it's history, amazing architecture, small charming pool and a beautiful, peaceful garden.  more »
  • Worth visiting no matter when. Amazing architecture, lovely building with pool which is full of fish. Nive break during city walk.  more »
  • Tvrdalj Castle contains the beautiful fish pond, as many travelers probably have seen on the net before they visit the Stari Grad. The entrance costs 30 kn and is right in the over the edge because there is not much more to see than just the dam. But it's still worth a look, when you are in the city-which incidentally is incredibly charming. The building was built by and belonged to the Croatian poet Petar Hektorović. At the entrance you will get a folder with, so you can read a little about him and the inscriptions in the walls.

  • Tvrdalj Hektorović
  • Beautiful and serene place...
  • Cool museum with a big fish pool from the Riva. a guided tour would make sense(history of town ect) because its a central place
  • The garden is nice, but overall there's not much more to see. It's a 15 minute experience, and the entry fee though not expensive is still unjustified.
  • For the fairly high price of admission, I was expecting a larger castle. The courtyard here is quite serene and pretty with the fish pond, but that's about all there is. A nice place to escape the heat a bit on a hot day, but it won't take up a big portion of your day.
