Trogir (86)
photo by Janos Korom Dr.

Trogir is a city in Croatia, close to Split and very close to Split airport. It is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as it is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe. It is a fascinating place to just wander and also contains a range of accommodation. At present the town is undergoing considerably redevelopment, but it far from fully developed and you will still find run down or even abandoned houses. It is definitely worth the day trip from Split

Getting there

Trogir is 10 minutes from the Split airport and about 30 minutes from down town Split. From the airport take the regular 37 bus (runs every 20 minutes during the day and every 30 minutes in the evening and on Sundays, cost 20 Kuna). The 37 bus is the regular Split -Trogir service and you can use this bus to get to Trogir from Split (or vice versa). It is also relatively cheap to catch a taxi from the airport to Trogir.

Traveling around

The old part of Trogir occupies an island which you can walk around in about 20 minutes.


Stunning beaches, spectacular islands with lavender-covered hills, small medieval and renaissance towns and Roman ruins characterize the intriguing strip of land that comprises Central Dalmatia. Warm Dalmatian hospitality and cheer is sure to capture your soul as you explore the quaint towns and old fishing ports.

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 around 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 sand beaches and secluded coves. Stretching out from the main land of Trogir to either side is an infinite number of beautiful beaches as well. A pleasing blend of Romanesque and Renaissance architecture, Trogir boasts a spectacular Venetian Cathedral of St. Lovro, a 15th-century town hall, the Church of St. John the Baptist with its gorgeous carved portal. Trogir is a delightful little town that is conveniently located to explore Central Dalmatia.

Just a short drive away, visitors may explore the intriguing city of Split with its busy commercial port, residential houses, shops and restaurants all rising from the incredible ruins of Diocletian’s Palace. The ancient ruins of the Roman city of Solin are also just a short drive away from Trogir and make an extraordinary day trip.
