Trogir, Small Town of Great Beauty
Trogir is usually next on list of sightseeing after Split for all tourists staying in its wider surroundings. This „island town“ located between two bridges can be walked around in almost 30 minutes. Although it sounds small, so much fits within that small scope of the old town and historic center. In 1997, UNESCO recognized the beauty and importance of this charming little town and included its old town on its list of cultural heritage.
The city walls date back to the 15th century within which are some of the most important sites for sightseeing. The first on the list is certainly the Cathedral of St. Lawrence which was built on the site of an ancient church destroyed by Sacarcen. Construction was completed around 1500. The most famous is actually the entrance, i.e. the portal of the cathedral carved by Master Radovan and the 47 m high bell tower. Immediately opposite the main entrance to the cathedral is the Ćipiko Palace, named after the famous Ćipiko family who lived in it and who had it thoroughly renovated in the 15th century. It is best known for its southern façade, designed by Nikola Firentinac, and for its Renaissance courtyard with galleries. When you make your way to the sea and walk across the waterfront promenade, so called Riva, you arrive in front of Kamerlengo Tower, which was used to defend the sea channel and the access to the port. Next to the tower is the playground of the local football club.
Wandering the streets of the old town you can taste local Dalmatian seafood specialties that will smell at every turn or you can book a trip to the nearby islands. Trogir is an ideal starting point for visiting the nearby Krknjaši, Šolta, Brač or Čiovo. If you want to feel the local atmosphere be sure to visit the local market.
