When you come to the center of Trogir, you will think that you have somehow found yourself in a fairy tale about knights and kings, because this is what one of the best preserved Romanesque-Gothic cities in Central Europe looks like - the city of Trogir. This list of world cultural heritage monuments is a frequent tourist destination for many curious people.
By the way, Trogir is located 25 kilometers west of Split and the proximity of a large center offers it many benefits. The total area of Trogir is 39.19 km², of which 7.52 km² falls on the city itself. There are about 13,000 permanent inhabitants in this area. The monumental heritage in the old town is lush, because the history from which it arose is turbulent, and the very foundation of Trogir dates back to the 3rd century BC when Greek colonists from Vis settled there. Of the sights, it is important to single out the miraculous Cathedral of St. Lovre, whose portal was made by the famous master Radovan, and which is located on the town square together with the City Hall and the Rector's Palace, the church of Sv. John the Baptist, the remains of the church of St. Marija, the votive church of Sv. Sebastian with the city clock tower, the loggia (old town courtroom) and the three-nave church of St. Barbara. On the waterfront we can find the church of St. Dominica and Nicholas and the beautiful Kamerlengo Fortress, and at the very entrance to the city we will be greeted and amazed by the Garagnin-Fanfogna Palace, which is also the city museum, and the Northern City Gate from the 7th and 8th centuries. It is interesting that the first pharmacy in Europe was opened in Trogir in 1271, which is just one more reason for Trogir to become your next holiday destination. Stay in one of the picturesque apartments, enjoy Dalmatian cuisine and visit Ciovo, an island in front of Trogir, embraced by the endless blue of the warm summer sea.
