Trogir

Trogir one of the jewels of the Adriatic coast, surrounded by the sea, full of interlocking streets, mazes, historical temples and palaces. This “city – museum” is a city which everyone who sees it once wants to see it again. In the third century BC, a small island located between the mainland and the island Ciovo was named Tragurion by the Greek colonists. This place developed into the city.

Trogir has a wealth of monuments from different periods: palaces of the nobility, town loggia, the Duke’s Palace, fortress and the remains of the city walls that surrounded the city and defended its citizens from the invaders’ attacks. Among all the monuments undoubtedly the most prominent is the Cathedral of St. Lawrence, which is located on the square, in the heart of the city and which, together with the beautiful Portal of Master Radovan, is one of the most important symbols of the city. Trogir is a unique place where different cultures collide but they are so perfectly matched together. Because of this the city was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
