Trogir

Trogir is situated in Central Dalmatia, along the Adriatic coast. The nearness to the Split Airport (5 kilometres) and a fast connection to the motorway (only 15 kilometres) make Trogir with its surrounding ports and islands an inevitable stop during your visit to Dalmatia.

Its naturally protected harbour has become very popular among the yachtsmen from all over the world. There are numerous sights which can be visited within the distance of only hundred kilometres from Trogir, e.g. the towns of Dubrovnik, Šibenik and Zadar, as well as some of the Croatia’s most beautiful national parks.

Trogir was founded by the Greek colonists in the 3rd century BC. Throughout the history it was occupied by the Romans, the Byzantines, the Hungarians, the Venetians and Napoleon. Culture, humanism and architecture flourished here in the Middle Ages; bulwarks and a tower which were built at that time within the ancient town nucleus defined its outlines. Trogir is today on the UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage as the best preserved Romanesque-Gothic town in Central Europe.
