Trogir is technically an island, but so well-connected to the coast that even the locals do not consider it as one. It is situated 27km west of the city of Split, protected by the coast and the island of Čiovo. Trogir is a very old town, founded by Greek colonists, but today is best known for its Venetian architecture.
While strolling around this small town, through the labyrinth of narrow alleys, keep in mind that you are in the best-preserved Romanesque Gothic complex of Central Europe. The Old Town has around 10 churches where the cathedral of St. Lawrence is the most important one. It has also a castle, tower, a Fortress called Kamerlengo. Trogir attracted many artists throughout history from Master Radovan who made the west portal of the cathedral to Ivan Meštrović, a very famous Croatian and international sculptor and architect. Since it is an island, surrounded by another island, the cuisine is predominantly Mediterranean, and fish and seafood based. We recommend trying anything from their delicious menu and we guarantee you won’t make a mistake.
