Medieval Town Trogir

Yesterday I took a day trip to Trogir, a historic old 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 I thought 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 lavender-covered hills.

“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:

  • The Venetian Cathedral of St. Lovro
  • A 15th-century Town Hall
  • The Church of St. John the Baptist”

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

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