About Trogir

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The old town of Trogir occupies a small island that is connected to the mainland by one bridge, and to the island of Ciovo by another.  The Greeks settled here in the 3rd century BC.  The Romans took over in 48 BC.  It was also under the rule of Hungary, the Venetians and other rulers, and this is reflected in the architecture and structure of the buildings.  This picturesque town has mostly white stone buildings, cobbled streets that shine like gold and look polished.  It is encircled by a wall that has two gates.  It is almost empty, except for a few locals and out of season tourists during the fall, winter and spring months, and most of the stores and restaurants close during this time.

In the summer, the streets become filled with tourists, as this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a popular summer destination.
