Location of Stomorska
This idyllic Croatian settlement lies on the eastern part of the Šolta island in a narrow bay. It is, in fact, 16 km from Split on the south-west. The vessel traffic between the two towns ensures the touristic development of Stomorska.
History of Stomorska
As a matter of fact, the settlement was first mentioned in the 14th century as a bay belonging to Gornje Selo. Its name derives from the Gospe od Stomorije Church dedicated to the Virgin Mary as the town lies below this church. The main reason for this is that during the Turkish invasion many preferred the safe Šolta island to the nearby lands. For instance, the Bučić family in Hvar founded a small ship-building factory here. The Cindro family in Split and the Novaković family in Tugar had a summer residence built in the bay.
After the Venetian Republic had ceased to exist in 1797, Stomorska became part of the Habsburg Empire. In 1806 it was occupied by Napoleon and remained under French reign until 1813. Although after the Emperor’s fall until the end of the First World War it belonged to the Habsburgs. The promenade by the shore was built in the 19th century. The Saint Nicholas’ Church and the old building of the school were erected in 1870. The town was famous for its talented boatmen transporting crops, lime and other stuff. After the First World War, Stomorska was under the regime of the Italian Kingdom, then the Serbian-Croatian-Slovenian Kingdom and finally became part of Yugoslavia. During the Second World War again Italian troops entered into the region.
