Trogir - n.a. photo

“I expected a little more from Trogir, based on the online travel opinions and information I had read before we set off. We spent one June day in Rovinj and the next in Dubrovnik, and compared to these two picturesque cities Trogir seemed more modest, yet somehow still expensive, at least compared to Rovinj. Of course, probably only by comparison. We took a stroll along the palm-lined promenade leading from the castle, followed by the main square and the sights mentioned below. I think the town can be fully explored in an hour and a half or two hours. We gathered the following information before our visit: ‘As is often the case in Central Dalmatia, the small medieval town of Trogir was built at the junction between an island – Ciovo – and the mainland, and lies in the western corner of the bay of Split.” Sometimes referred to as “little Venice”, Trogir is a veritable memory book of medieval Mediterranean culture. Its old town, which bears witness to a rich past, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.’”

 “The narrow streets typical of small Croatian towns are taken to a new level here: you can almost only walk single file down the labyrinthine alleys. In one doorway a group of people is handing out, while another may house a cozy restaurant. And the kitsch factor is only increased by the ships arriving at the port one after the other. Trogir really is like the set of a medieval movie, and if you’re nearby (or even not so nearby) it’s worth paying a visit.” (2017)

“The old town of Trogir seemed, if possible, even smaller than Zadar, but there were about the same number of people in the narrow streets, so the crowd was pretty big (and that's nothing compared to Split). You enter the old town through the mainland gate, and there is also a nice pedestrian bridge. At first glance, Trogir differed from what we had seen so far in that a fortress and a tower were visible. The tower was occupied – not by the Turks, but by restaurateurs: nowadays there is a restaurant in it...” (2017)
 
“Trogir is a beautiful place, the people are wonderful, and the coast and sea are beautiful! Visit the old town, because it's great! Also, the market is fantastic – I used to start my day there! If you like to run, I recommend a run along the beach at dawn. I did it every day. In addition, there are excellent cruises.” (2021)

“The old town is beautiful, with lots of sights. In the evening, the port is a great attraction with lots of boats and street performers... There is a market that is open until late at night, a fish market, and several shops. Split can be easily reached by boat, which is fantastic – it can even be a one-day trip. If you are looking for accommodation in Okrug, it should be on the side facing the old town, because otherwise, you have to climb the mountain. No thanks. Parking can be difficult.”

“I was captivated by Trogir and its surroundings. One of the most beautiful places I know. It is close to Primosten, Rogoznica, Vranijca Belvedere, Ciovo Island, the Valley of the Seven Castles, Split, and plenty more besides. We always travel to this part of the world at the end of July or in August. The weather is wonderful and the water is warm.” (2022)
