The town of Trogir is literally a museum, its historic town centre having been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997. Listing all the astonishing sites in this medieval town, which took its current shape between the 13th and 15th century, would take an inordinate amount of time. However, pride of place certainly goes to the Cathedral of St. Lawrence, with its famous portal by Master Radovan, located in the narrow main street lined with Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque palace fronts.
The oldest symbol of Trogir would be Kairos, the ancient Greek god of the right or opportune moment, the 3rd-century BC relief of whom is preserved in the Benedictine convent, partly open for visitors during the summer season.
A bridge allowing the passage of boats of up to 2.80 metres in height connects the old town centre with the island of Čiovo where ACI Marina Trogir is located. The marina is open all year round and offers a fabulous view of the charming promenade of Trogir and of St. Lawrence’s Cathedral bell tower. Visitors may think that time stands still in this town, but the energy of its citizens who live in happy symbiosis with the ever-inquisitive tourists will soon convince them otherwise.
Did you know…?
…that 1.5 km east of Trogir there is a 500-metre shingle and sand beach backed by a pine forest, and nearby is Komarac (“Mosquito”) beach, very popular with young people. The most popular and most beautiful beach on the Trogir Riviera is the Okrug Gornji beach on the western coast of the island of Čiovo, 2 km from Trogir town centre.
…that bird-watching tourism is developing rapidly in Pantan Nature Park, the site appearing on the radar of many bird-watchers from all over the world in recent years. The park is easily reached because of its proximity to the town centre – it is a mere 2km away.
…that Trogir is considered to be the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic town in all of Central Europe.
