This relic by a bygone day of Dalmatia being under the yolk of foreign domination is just a shell with nothing much to look at. When I visited Trogir I was expecting something interesting (no tourist guide that I have read had much to say about this fortress). I was disappointed to find that there wasn't much to see, and...

I enjoyed looking around this fortress, but there was not much information about what it actuallt was or had been used for. You can climb up one of the towers but due to the old creaky wood I stayed on the ground! My husband did climb up and thought the views were lovely. I think if you are in Trogir... More

I loved this visit but the fact there is what looks like a huge oil platform being built across the bay just ruins the look. Trogir needs to make up its mind...either it will be historic or manufacturing.

Also worth seeing if you are in Trogir, though all you are seeing is the walls and the view from the top

The old fortress has a nice, slightly difficult to climb, platform where you can see the city and the bay with the different kinds of blue water. A nice afternoon exercise for a very good view, but slightly too little history, if that is what you are after.

Don't expect too much from the fortress itself, but the walls let you go up and see the town (mainly the riva with the palm trees and the harbour) from a special point of view. You can also have a short walk around the walls inside. Worth a half an hour visit after paying the entry fee.

Entrance to the fortress was 10 or 20 Kuna, something minimal. You walk up stairs on the side to get to the wall level of the castle, then you go up a ladder into one of the turrets right to the top. The sheer magnitude of the castle walls and how they must have built it is quite overwhelming. The... More

Fortress is great and it has great potential but I didn't like couple of things. 1. When you enter inside of one of the towers, it is full of pigeons that are destroying everything. I saw there is one or two small windows through which pigeons are getting inside. If they only put protective nets on these windows everything would... More

Fantastic historic site. I would like to see a better upkeep of it though - I understand it is a UNESCO protected site but some parts of the fortress are being allowed to crumble away. It's a really pity for such a historic Croatian town.
