What to see in Trogir Old City?

By vovidi

Trogir  is one of the most beautiful cities of Dalmatia. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997. Split airport is the closest airport to Trogir (actually Split airport is closer to Trogir than Split!). In order to travel to Trogir, you can take public bus from the airport. It takes only 10 minutes to arrive at bus station of Trogir.

The old town is set within medieval walls on a tiny island located between the main land and Čiovo Island.

In the video you’ll see the most popular historical buildings of the city: Town hall (Gradska uprava Trogir), St Sebastian’s Church, The Town Loggia and St Lawrence’s Cathedral (Crkva Sv. Lovre).  You can climb the tower of St Lawrence’s Cathedral for 25 kn.

The Town Loggia of Trogir was first recorded in documents of the 13th century. It served as a furnished gathering space and today local Dalmatian music groups give concerts.

The St Sebastian’s Church was built in 1476 as a votive church. Above this church you can see the Town Clock Tower.

Around the city walls, you can find plenty of dalmatian restaurants, bars, cafes, ice cream shops. Inside the city walls, you’ll feel yourself as if you are in a labyrinth. Don’t be afraid to get lost in this labyrinth, the tiny streets of the old town will take you to one of the city gates or sea side eventually.

If you’d like to swim, sea doesn’t look very clear in the center unfortunately. The best thing you can do is to take a boat and go to Medena Beach. Every half an hour or so boats takes off to the beach and return until very late.
