“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Loved Trogir Old Town - great food, lovely people and wonderful architecture. Would recommend an afternoon sat by the harbour watching the world go by.

“Charming historic town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Trogir is a cute little port town with lots of alleys, restaurants, shops and charm. The promenade is beautiful with many ships and yachts docked along the water. If you're in Split I would recommend taking a few hours to check out Trogir. It's about a 30 minute ride by car or bus.

“UNESCO World Heritage Site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Trogir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and deservingly so. Walking through this charming city you can experience it's history through the diversity of architecture, people and cuisine. St. Ivan Orsini's statue on top of the north gate greets you into the city.The orthogonal street patterns dates back to the Hellenistic period when Trogir was a Greek settlement called Tragurion (island of goats). Extensive Roman cemeteries tell of it's early occupation.Later came 9th century Byzantine occupation, 10th and 15th century Venetian dominance can be seen in the Cathedral of St. Lovro (the lion at the entrance is a symbol of Venice, 12th century Hungarian rule and by 1797 it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 1918 Trogir was briefly under French rule. .Scattered throughout the town are examples of Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance architecture .Highlights of the city include: Loggia doorway, town square, Cathedral of St. Lovro, bell tower, Cipiko palace and the Kamerlengo fortress.The cuisine is fabulous and I enjoyed the homemade sausages, wine and strudel. I met some wonderful friendly people as a bonus to my visit to Trogir, who helped me enjoy the beaches, nightlife and restaurants.

“Worth a half day visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We arrived at Slit airport early morning, collected our hire car to drive south to Makarska and decided to visit Trogir before heading off as it is only about a 10 minute drive from the airport (the airport is located some 20 kilometres out of Split). It was a Saturday but there was plenty of parking in the car park just before the bridge. Driving over the bridge into Trogir is not recommended during the busy summer months but I would avoid driving in at all - the traffic was heavy even in October. We enjoyed our walk around the town, especially through the little alleyways but the main areas around the Cathedral, etc. were extremely busy with tourists as our visit coincided with the arrival of númerous cruise ship groups!

“Beautiful seaside village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We drove from Split to Trogir as it was recommended to us to visit. Easy drive, (28k) parking not an issue. There is a market to wonder through and of course the town centre. Worth a visit. Although similar to other old cities, we enjoyed a seaside lunch, wondering the various alley ways. We found a few artisan shops that offered more than your typical souvenirs.
