In the heart of Dalmatia, 20 km from Split, lies Trogir, a city with over two thousand years of history that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the impressive number of Baroque and Renaissance buildings.

The old town centre is very special, enclosed in a small island protected by a wall and connected by two bridges to the mainland and another island to the south, the island of Čiovo.

Its narrow streets are lined with beautiful Romanesque and Renaissance buildings from the city’s heyday. The promenade is a popular meeting place for citizens and tourists, who come here to stroll, have a drink and a chat.

Most tourists visit Trogir on a day trip from Split, but why not choose it as your base for exploring Dalmatia instead? With its old-world charm and beautiful beaches nearby, it’s a great alternative to more famous, crowded and expensive resorts.

Things to do in Trogir

The main access point to the old town is the Renaissance-era North Gate, which bears a statue of Blessed Giovanni Orsini, the town’s patron saint.

From the gate, you can access the main street, Ulica Kohl-Genscher, whose name is a tribute to the German chancellor and foreign minister who first pushed for international recognition of independent Croatia.

Churches

The Church of St Sebastian

Trogir’s architectural jewel is the splendid Cathedral of St. Lawrence, built between the 13th and 15th centuries by the Venetians.

Admire the 13th century Romanesque portal, with statues of Adam and Eve resting on Venetian lions on either side. Once inside, don’t miss the richly decorated Chapel of St John and the cathedral treasury, which includes an ivory triptych and several illuminated manuscripts.

You can climb the 47-metre high bell tower to enjoy a beautiful view of the city and nearby islands.

Palaces

Kamerlengo Castle in Trogir

The centre of Trogir abounds with elegant palaces, including the 15th-century Town Hall, the Cipiko Palace with a splendid sculpted triple lancet window and the Lucic Palace with a Renaissance portal and courtyard.

Impressive is the view of Kamerlengo Castle, a typical example of a medieval fortress. It was built in the 15th century by the Venetians as part of the city’s defence system; today it hosts film and theatre festivals in the summer months.

Museums

Curious about the city’s history? Visit the Trogir Municipal Museum, housed in an elegant historical building. On display are drawings, books, documents and period clothing.

If you have some time, also check out the small but interesting Museum of Sacred Art, which exhibits a collection of medieval manuscripts, fragments of an icon that once adorned the altar of the Cathedral and a painting by Bellini.

Beaches in and around Trogir

The most popular beach around Trogir is Okrug Gornji, on the island of Čiovo. This 2 km long pebble beach, often called Copacabana by the locals, can be reached on foot thanks to the bridge connecting it to the old town. Here you will find a wide choice of bars and restaurants.

The closest beach to the centre of Trogir is Pantun, a sand and pebble shoreline on the estuary of the Pantan river, 1.5 km from the old town bridge. It is surrounded by a nature reserve.

Four kilometres west of the old town is Medina beach, with a pleasant seaside promenade and numerous bars, ice-cream parlours, tennis and mini-golf courts and rental shops for sports equipment. It is located on the site of a megaresort but is open to the public and has parking facilities.

If you are looking for a more idyllic setting, move on to the nearby islands of Drvenik Mali and Drvenik Veli, which are easily reached by boat. In addition to lovely beaches, sheltered bays and coves, you can enjoy the beautiful landscape, dominated by olive groves, and some interesting historical buildings such as the Church of St George and the unfinished Church of St Nicholas.
