The oldest and largest place on the island has always been just as it is now the economic and administrative center of the island, although the inhabitants were mostly limestone, farmers and fishermen. The center of the place consists of narrow irregular streets that enclose cottages, in partially fortified units with inner courtyards and taverns, and as such give off a rustic, old Mediterranean charm as you walk through these same cobbled streets. These valuable old examples of architecture contribute to the experience of an authentic island ambience, which is why it strives to be restored with the aim of preserving traditional island architectural values. The way of life on the island throughout history has been authentically presented in some scenes of the famous Croatian television series Velo misto, most of which was filmed in Grohote.

We walked along the cobbled streets as we took in breathtaking gasps of the fresh air around. As an architect lover, i loved the medieval architecture of buildings , they offered a good spot for us to take pictures. We watched the way of life on the Island throughout history in the famous Croatian television series.

We had a lot of fun on this island the architecture of the buildings was so beautiful. This place has a cool old atmosphere and there are cute cottages.
We walked along the cobbled streets as we gasped fresh air in the charming Mediterranean atmosphere. The cottages had inner courtyards that were spacious and had a good view, relaxing to the body, mind and soul. It was a magical place to spend my holiday.
The taverns offered us with wines of different flavours, the beer were served both warm and cold. My film students were fascinated by the acting skills and the mastery of filming skills depicted in the Croatian Television Series Velo mistro. It gave us ideas on places to shoot our film the next time we tour this location.
