We are in Trogir, just few kilometers from Split, our hometown. We have several friends who live there (remember Maja & Milan from Drvenik Mali story?), but still we don’t visit it enough and we need to change that, because it is gorgeous seaside city!
Let me tell you why we think you should put Trogir on your “bucket list”.
Trogir is UNESCO heritage city which, I heard, people call “little Venice”, “Museum-city” and many other names. I call it “Medieval charmer” :).
It is 30 minute car drive from Split city (please note, in summer there are huge traffic jams towards Trogir, so sometimes it takes 1 hour or more to reach city). Town is located on island, but bridges connect it to mainland.
It is small city, so it can be included even in the fastest schedule. You can literally walk it in 30 minutes, but don’t. If you are planing to stay in town over night, you can easily find affordable accommodation.
START at The Land Gate (Kopnena Vrata) and get lost in “street maze“! While walking trough alleys you will bump into most unexpected beauty of stone arches & walls, colorful doors and charming Mediterranean courtyards.
Find your way to Trogir Cathedral (Katedrala Sv. Lovre). Apparently, the best views of the city are from tower of St. Lawrence Cathedral. We didn’t get a to chance to see it, but if you did, let us know (in comments below) if that is true!
Instead, we hung out with our friend Marina on Main Square. It was Christmas time, therefore it was accordingly decorated.
You exit city walls trough “porta civitatis” to waterfront promenade. You will find most spectacular boats and yachts docked at the promenade. In summer time, plenty family-owned restaurants and taverns open their doors for most amazing gastronomical experience. You can walk promenade in 5 minutes, from one end to other. At the end, rises beautiful Kamerlengo castle which was, unfortunately, closed.
If you have car & time, go to the Trogir Marina, from where you can get perfect city landscape photos. Aim to get there in “golden hour” 🙂
We rated Trogir as a perfect town for Instagramers. What do you think?
