Medieval Croatian Town Trogir

Trogir Harbor

Yesterday I took a day trip to Trogir, a historic old Croatian town and harbor on the Adriatic coast. Trogir is another example of a place where word and photo descriptions are inadequate.

It took longer than expected to get to Trogir from Split – over an hour each way via bus – but it was worth the time. Trogir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best preserved small medieval towns in Europe. Part of Trogir occupies an island and has beautiful beaches surrounded by hills covered in lavender.

Trogir is a jewel of a town encased in 15th-century walls.



“Tiny medieval streets wind through the enchanting town revealing hidden restaurants and eye-catching galleries. A wide seaside promenade snakes through the town, culminating in a charming port full of sailboats waiting to take you to the islands of Drvenik Mali and Drvenik Veli with their pristine beaches and secluded coves.” The town has a blend of Romanesque and Renaissance architecture including:

Trogir doesn’t disappoint. It produces one captivating site after another – especially the  Venetian Cathedral of St. Lovro!

Dinner at a favorite café and a slow walk along the promenade on the way back to my apartment watching the harbor and listening to a mix of European accents ended a  beautiful and satisfying day.
