Trogir

Tourist destination info Trogir

Trogir is a town situated on the Kaštela Bay coast between the island of Čiovo and the mainland. This is a historic town in the truest sense of the word. Rich in cultural and historical monuments, authentic architecture and beautiful streets are the reason it is called "Little Venice" and added to the UNESCO list of world heritage. Trogir offers you the opportunity to explore its richly layered heritage: the northern gate, Garagnin (City Museum), the main town square (city hall, the Rector's Palace, the church of St. John the Baptist, the church of St. Sebastian), Radovan's portal, the Ćipiko place, the cathedral of St. Lawrence, a monastery and church of St. Dominic and many other cultural monuments. The old town center lies on an island situated between the island of Čiovo and the mainland: it is connected to the mainland by a stone bridge and to the island of Čiovo by a drawbridge. Trogir is surrounded by lush green vegetation, the islands and rocky and sandy beaches of which the most famous are the Pantan beach, the Okrug beach (Okrug) & the Coffee beach (Slatina). Sports lovers can try their hand at tennis, bowling, surfing and diving school. Fishing nights, folklore performances and concerts of classical music are organized during the summer. The town has its own marina, Marina ACI Trogir, which has 200 berths and 80 boat places on land.

Did you know? Trogir is named after the goats. Tragos is a Greek word for goat. When the Greeks arrived in the 3rd and 4th century they saw a herd of goats on the hills surrounding the town and so the name Tragos remained.

Be sure to visit

City gates and walls: a great part of the wall remains on the coastal side of Trogir, along with two towers dating from the 13th century. Between the two towers is a door leading to the sea coast and it is assumed that they are the work of Trifun Bokanić. Next to the doors is the lodge – porch, used today as a souvenir market, built in the early 16th century. The north gate was built around the year1656 in the Baroque style. Perched above the door is a Gothic statue from the 15th century, which depicts the patron saint of Trogir, the blessed bishop John.

Ćipiko palace: there are two Ćipiko palaces, a large and a small, which were created by linking several Romanesque buildings. The facade of the larger palace is decorated with a  Gothic triforium window, the work of Andrija Aleši and a door carved by John Duknović.

Cathedral of St. Lawrence: This is a building which mixes the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles. It contains valuable works of art such as: the lobby and the baptistery from the 15th century, Radovan's portal from the year 1240, the bell tower (a mixture of Gothic and mannerism), the chapel of Blessed John and carved wooden choir stalls from the 15th century and the sacristy of the cathedral-treasury.

Garagnin - Fanfogna Palace/ Town Museum: a mix of Romanesque to Baroque styles. Once a residential-economic complex, today it houses a Garagnin – Fanfogna library from the 18/19 century, a Lapidary (a collection of stone fragments and sculptures from Antiquity to the Baroque) and a photo gallery Cate Dujšin - Ribar.

Main square: there are many historical landmarks in this square, such as the City Hall (Dukes Palace), St. John the Baptist’s church, St. Mary’s church, church of St. Sebastian and church of St. Barbara (St. Martin).

      Trogir & Ciovo
      We just returned from a three week visit to Croatia and stayed our last week near Trogir in Ciovo. This is an island that is connected by a bridge to Trogir and easily accessible to walkers. Trogir is such a beautiful town that does not have cars in the main area and has cobble stone streets with hidden gems around every corner. There are many restaurants and cafes available with shops and a market. The town is wakable in under 10 minutes from one side to the other. We chose to stay in Ciovo that is just over the small bridge and walked into Trogir daily, as it was only a 5 minute walk from our apartment. I would recommend looking at options on Ciovo but check the distance to the main town. Many housing options are up hill on Ciovo so be sure to check that too. One year we were up a steep hill that took us 25 minutes to get to and in the summer heat it was not fun. Amfora was one of our favorite restaurants in Trogir by the water. Stop for gelato at any of the many shops, they are all good. If you are looking for souvenirs then I would suggest going to the market just in front of the Old Town of Trogir. They have good prices and offer many options.
      The town of Trogir has become more popular so there are more people than in the past. Also, now that Croatia is using the Euro for currency, it is expensive for Americans visiting there. Prices, in general, have increased too with its popularity.
