“A hidden gem...”
Reviewed August 21, 2010

A short drive away from Split, lies this tiny town of Trogir. The only access is a small bridge, and it is virtually impossible to get lost in the few narrow streets. Though the beautifully decorated church, old fortress, and ancient buildings add plenty of charm, the true beauty of this town is the relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere that emanates from everywhere. People are sitting in cafes relaxed and happy, chatting and taking their time, enjoying a glass of wine or a heaping portion of gelato. It is simply an easily overlooked, but not easily forgotten little gem.

“Wonderfull town near Split, Croatia”
Reviewed August 4, 2010

This summer I spend in Croatia, and been to Trogir for one day... I think It's Wonderful mediteranean town with special old architecture and friendly people...
Position is great because is only few miles to Split Airport and only 15 miles to Split (second largest city in Croatia). Also there is small island of Ciovo which is connected to Trogir by little bridge where you can enjoy on the exellent beaches and autocamps...

When you enter in the old town there is a lot of small street with cute restaurants and souvenir shops. The prices are acceptible (let's say around 1 EUR for coffe)...

In the heart of the old town there is a huge and beautifull cathedral from the roman period and a lot's of cafe-bars around it...

I reccomend this place, and I'm planing to spend my summer again there :)

Things to do: Walk around the old town of Trogir and relax in little restaurants and cafe-bars, enjoy in wonderfull beaches on Ciovo Island and take one day tour to Split (around 20 min. by car)

“Just beautiful!”
Reviewed July 31, 2010

Stayed in a villa (Masha) just along the coast - half an hour on Filip's Glass bottomed boat! - and went into Trogir every night for wonderful cocktails, good food and very nice surroundings. The buildings and cobbled streets are quaint; the waterfront is lovely to wander along and view the boats. Well worth a visit during the day too, to stroll around the market and stock up on fresh fruit, veg, cheese and breads....

“Favourite place in Croatia Trogir”
Reviewed July 18, 2010

For those with a taste for the good life,Trogir is the place to go,with Split airport only three mile up the road its a super spot to relax with good food /wine, at a good price,surrounded by water its easy excess to the sea,we stayed in the slanada apartments on the island of ciovo, we were well look after, You can go to the Trogir diving school on the island of ciovo and the local shops and bars are as cheap as one euro a beer,Its more of a family place and doesnt have a late drinking culture,you would often see the children with there parents late at night , with the locals speaking alot of english and taking euros as payment its all made easy.The old town has much history behide it and is a UNESCO world heritage site but you should be well informed about the history before you go,also you can visit Split by bus or boat the cost is the same.enjoy

“Third trip and still a wonderful place to visit”
Reviewed June 8, 2010

We have stayed in Seget Donji, just to the West of Trogir for three years, the last two at the excellent Apartmenti-G. We have already been to Krka twice and therefore did not visit there again although it is always worth a visit. This time we went to Omis, which is an attractive town, and also an interesting drive up into the mountains above - not for the faint hearted! We didn't go rafting as there are limited trips at this time of year but it looked like something to try another time. Another day we drove inland and took the northern road aroung Peruca Lake. A road in name only much is gravel, but great views and well off the beaten track (the woods are still mined from the Homelands War)- that took us to Knin. Wonderfull fortress and superb views of the Krka gorge.

Costs have certainly gone up in Croatia and it is not as cheap as it was two years ago but it is still good value. We found Trogir to be busier than we have found it in the past and the locals have caught on, you used to be able to park over the bridge from Trogir for free, but this year they charge 10 Kuna per day. It isn't much but after you haven't paid at all..! Parking at the car parks on the mainland is 6 kn per hour, and for a short stay - a quick shop - are better value.

There is a new Lidl near the airport, and if you have a car, and are self-catering a good place to go, with plenty of parking. The fish market and fruit market are as good as ever.

We intend to return, but unless the exchange rate between sterling/Kuna improves then we will have to be a bit more careful with the budget! Two years ago lunch for 2 was about £10-12, this year £15+
