As one of the oldest towns in the Mediterranean Trogir has more than enough to offer.
The city traces back to the year 2000 BC, but the official "birth" is quoted at year 3 AC, when the city was under Greek domination and was named Tragurium.
Many stories through the ages reviewing Trogir as "Tragurium Marmore Notum" which means "city famous for marble," or simply "Marble City".
Trogir is located in the middle of Dalmatia, only 5 minutes' drive from Split airport.
The approach to the airport is basically right over your head when you´re walking around town.
Within the thick walls you´ll find an atmosphere rarely found other places.
Even in such a small area, you can spend hours in Trogir without tracing your own footsteps.
In the countless narrow streets, you will find cafes, shops, restaurants, apartments and small hotels.
Take a minute to enjoy these beautiful streets!
I have often been thinking that it could be really cool to live in Trogir. Deep in the narrow alleys, at the top of the many buildings, you will actually find apartments for sale or rent.
What a life!
Strolling on the pier, watching the boats or drinking coffee on the promenade.
Walking between the sights inside the city or quietly enjoy the square and see other people do the same.
Seek refuge in shady streets on hot days.
I could certainly live like that.
Trogir is quite simply gorgeous and a good alternative to more famous Dubrovnik.
The pulse is slow, people are welcoming and reserved at the same time.
I have counted. You can actually spend 25 days in Trogir and eat at a new place every day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Pretty impressive.
Inside the walls of Trogir, there are 73 restaurants. If you walk for a few minutes in each direction, you will find just as many in the surrounding area.
The quality of the food is consistently high.
Mid-summer Trogir is flowing with people, naturally affecting the efficiency of the restaurants. Just sit back and relax. You´re not in a hurry, are you? It´s vacation, after all.
Mid-summer it is also very hot in Croatia, many times well over 40 degrees at midday.
On such days Trogir is a good place to seek some refuge.
Narrow streets and tall buildings creates much sought for shade, while the breeze is flowing through the city making life a lot easier for overheated people.
Trogir has a lot of sights that are worth writing down on your checklist. The Kamerlengo Castle and the church tower are two.
But most of all,Trogir is an attraction in itself.
A summer night in Trogir is something on it´s own. Take a stroll out onto the pier, and you are guaranteed a peek at the most amazing luxury yachts.
There is a lot of stuff going on in Trogir. Large and small events, festivals and spontaneous performances.
Croatia has an amazing choir tradition, and if you sit in the square and wait for a while, there is a good chance that a chorus will line up and sing for you.
A FEW FAVORITES
The large square
A focal point, with several cafes and lots of people.
Here you can sit peacefully under the big umbrellas, leaving city life to whiz past.
Located by the big church, it is easy to find.
The small square, also known as “The Ice Cream Square."
With four different ice cream parlors, and a large supply of shadow this is a great gathering place for the family.
The best pizza in town, a family restaurant, friendly staff, situated with a number of other restaurants on The Obrov Square.
