Trg sv. Stjepana


Središnji hvarski trg ili Pjaca, najveći je trg u cijeloj Dalmaciji. lzvorno duboka uvala, a kasnije prostor između dva utvrđena grada, Grode na sjeveru i Burga na jugu, kroz stoljeća je zasipavana dok nije poprimila današnje dimenzije. Pjaca je do 15. st. već formirana, s katedralom na istoku i morem na zapadu. U početku je bila šira od današnje, ali zbog manjka prostora unutar utvrđenog grada, izgrađuju kuće na sjevernom dijelu Pjace, ispred gradskih zidina. U središtu Pjace je komunalni bunar iz 1520. godine. Pjaca je u potpunosti popločana 1780. godine.

very good!!!
This square is right next to St. Stephen's cathedral, it is a perfect spot to sit and watch people. It is quite busy and it has restaurants, cafes and shops. I sat here while I was waiting for the church to open, it was a nice chill spot and meeting point.
At night the place is well lit with different colors and it looks superb. A place worth the visit.
The time we spent here with my family is a precious memory to us. My kids loved feeding the pigeons and crows. My wife on the other hand was delighted by the arrangement of the trees and benches around. My brother who is a design lover was fascinated by the exterior design of the Square especially the Concrete bricks. Myself i was amazed by the beautiful buildings around this wonderful place and the vast square.
We visited many famous sites such as St. Stephen Square, Karlskirche, and Schoenbrunn Palace. We also took night tours to explore the city, and do some shopping. There are many great restaurants in the city center and good transportation systems. The time we spent here is a precious memory to us and we wish to visit again someday.
The square offers great sights of the buildings around, it is also less crowded and the pool in the middle is lit in the night.
Stunning place with a beautiful church that dominated the square. We enjoyed our visit to the place and had some photos taken.
