A Visit to the Old Town of Trogir, Croatia

There are many cities and towns dotted along the Adriatic Coast of Croatia, and one of the most memorable for me is Trogir. This town has 2300 years of continuous urban tradition. Its culture was created under the influence of the ancient Greeks, and then the Romans, and Venetians. But regardless of its impressive history, this town will charm you immediately upon arrival. It's not big and pompous, but its modest appearance utterly benigns its lasting charm.

In this post I want to share some impressions from the old town core and harbor of Trogir.

Arrival to Trogir

Trogir has a high concentration of palaces, churches, and towers in the town center, as well as a fortress on a small island, and in 1997 was inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List. You arrive by car or bus, and there is the Split Airport which is very close by. Parking is in front of the old town, and I had no trouble finding it. After you are set in, you can immediately walk into the old town core and start exploring.



Behind the Town

The history of Trogir starts in the 3rd century BC when the, then called settlement Tragurion was founded by Greek colonists. The town reached powerful economic prosperity in the 12th and the 13th centuries. Walking through the old town, you can certainly experience the many facets of Trogir and marks that were left behind here by the many rulers. On the fall of Venice in 1797, Trogir became a part of the Habsburg Empire which ruled over the city until 1918. After World War I, Trogir, together with Croatia, became a part of the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs and subsequently, the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Trogir was occupied by Italy and subsequently liberated in 1944. Since then it belonged to the second Yugoslavia, and from 1991 to Croatia.


Fortress Kamerlengo

The fortress was built in the mid-15th century. Today it is used as a location for performances during the summer months, which you can see better in the image after the next one. The word kamerlengo (Italian: camerlengo) refers to the title of a Venetian administrative official (a chamberlain).


Next up: A Soccer Field, right next to the Fortress.

Architecture and Sights

Trogir's medieval core, surrounded by walls, comprises a preserved castle and tower and a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Trogir's grandest building is the church of St. Lawrence and the most significant work of the Romanesque-Gothic style in Croatia. When I crossed through the old town, I arrived on the other side in the old town harbor. Here you will find the main walking lane, restaurants, boats and yachts.




I hope you enjoyed these sights from the Adriatic Sea.

I clicked on "Add a Comment", but nothing came up for me to type in (until now, lol). Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Anyway, if I haven't been commenting on your posts, that's why. Most of the time I can't find the spot to do it, or it doesn't appear. But I love your photos as always, and thank you for the wonderful tour!
