The village of Stomorska, with 240 souls, is located on the eastern side of the Solta Island on the northern coast. Solta is just a few nautical miles away from the neighboring Island of Brac and from the mainland by Split. Stomorska is the oldest settlement on the Island of Solta and, therefore, heavily developed. There are several restaurants, pizzerias and restaurants that offer a good mix of local and international cuisine. In most of the restaurants you can enjoy beautiful views of the harbor. Larger sailing ships responsible for taking tourists on cruises also anchor in this harbor.

The construction of sailing ships has had a long tradition in Stomorska because the ships once delivered the island products of wood, lime, almonds and other specialties to the mainland. The merchant ships were manufactured in a small yard, which was run by the Bucic Family from Hvar. The limestone was processed in the lime kiln before being transported to the mainland. On the west bank of Stomorska, you can still admire parts of the building dating back to 1916.

Those who want to experience more history and culture should join a tour of Stomorska at the Church of St. Nicholas. The sacred building has a small, threefold bell tower which was built in 1870. The old school building also dates back to this time, which is used today as a venue for various events and exhibitions.
