Trogir is one of the oldest and most exciting cities you may choose as your holiday destination on the Croatian coast.


Trogir is a small town of 12.000 inhabitants in Central Dalmatia, on the Eastern coastline of the Adriatic Sea, and its  heart is an islet between the hills on the mainland and the Island of Čiovo.


The climate is typical Mediterranean with 2.700 sunny hours per year, its average yearly temperature is above 15°C, reaching more than 30°C in summer when the sea temperature is well above 25°C.


Tourism is the largest industry in the Trogir area with a total daily accommodation capacity of more than 20.000 guests.


The gulf of Trogir Saldun is surrounded by islands in a crystal clear sea: people from all around the world come here to experience the town and its people and many are those who anchor their boat under the town walls to enjoy its unique beauty, but summer time Trogir Waterfront is only for yachts longer than 25 metres, so it is much easier to get to anchorages and small ports in the gulf and on the neighboring islands such as Drvenik, Solta and Čiovo.


Trogir is very easily reachable by air from major European cities with Split Airport only 3 km away, by car from Zagreb through Karlovac-Gracac-Knin and from Italy  through Rijeka-Zadar-Šibenik, by boat from the Italian Cities of Venezia, Ancona, Pescara, Bari.


The most popular public beaches of the Trogir Riviera are Pantan Beach,  1,5 km East of Trogir, Okrug Beach (Okrug Gornji)  most popular and 5 km from town's Centre,
Kava Beach (Slatine) 12 km from Trogir - both on the Island of Čiovo - and Medena Beach (Seget) 4 km from Trogir Centre.


Also thanks to an exceptionally long touristic tradition Trogir will charm you with its friendly people and warm hospitality: in over 100 restaurants and bars you will be able to enjoy Dalmatian fish dishes and other light and healthy specialties all prepared with natural ingredents as well as classic continental food.


All payments and prices are in Croatian Kuna but you can also pay in Euro in almost every shop and restaurant all of them also accepting all major credit cards: four bank offices and several automatic cash machines are at your service in Trogir Centre.


The ongoing integration process in the European Union starts in 1997 with the acknowledgement by UNESCO of Trogir as part of World Cultural Heritage:


"Trogir is a remarkable example of urban continuity."


This small island has a 2.300 years rich culture and tradition created by the Greeks, who settled Tragurion in IV-III Century BC, the Romans, who made Tragurium a municipality joined to Salona, Centre of the Roman Province of Dalmatia, and the Venetians, whos Traů  lasted for almost four centuries: Venice left here palaces, churches, towers and a fortress that make today's Trogir "The Stone Beauty" of the Croatian Adriatic Sea.


After the fall of Roman Empire in Fifth century Trogir developed as an independent town, later the Croats came and during the Tenth century it was renewed the formal  independent Roman "oppidum", struggling for centuries on Hungary's side against the Venetians.


But at the end the town was taken by Venice in 1420, devastated and rebuilt - very much as we can see it today - during an occupation lasted almost four centuries, until 1797.


After few years of freedom, Trogir falls under Napoleon's and then a one century long Austro-Hungarian domination, until 1914, regardless of a very short Croatian self-ruling in 1877: after First World War Trogir becomes with Croatia a part of State of South Slovenes and after World War II of the Yugoslavian Federation.


The real modernization of Trogir starts as late as the Seventies with the ship industry and tourism, interrupted in 1991 by the latest Balcan war: today life is back to normal and Trogir an even more popular tourist attraction than ever before.


Not to mention all what you can reach from Trogir: Split Diocletian's Palace, Salona, Šibenik, its Renaissance Cathedral of St James and the Krka National Park
