Trogir Vacation Packages & Tours

The medieval town of Trogir, located less than 30 minutes from Split, sits on a small island that’s linked by a bridge to the mainland. It boasts a long, rich history with its roots going back to the 3rd century BC when Doric Greeks founded a trading port here and is widely regarded as the most well-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex in not only the Adriatic but throughout Central Europe. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s enjoyable just to wander the maze of small stone streets and the wide seaside promenade overlooking Kamerlengo, a Venetian castle, and fortress dating back to the 15th century. Within the walls, you’ll find many other impressive historic landmarks and the walls themselves can even be climbed for spectacular views over the Old Town, the waterfront promenade, and the sea.

Where to Stay in Trogir

The finest properties in Trogir are concentrated in the Old Town, a location that will put you in the heart of it all, steps from the historic attractions, shopping, dining, and more. Of course, this is the busiest part of the city and it’s also the most expensive. Still, there are budget, mid-range, and luxury options, just expect them to be priced higher than what you might find elsewhere. Villages nearby provide a good alternative, such as the seafront village of Seget Donji and Arbanija, a village on Ciovo Island which is also connected by a bridge.

When to visit Trogir

Trogir is best visited between May and September, with the weather warmest in July and August. Avoid the peak heat and the peak crowds by coming at either end of the popular tourist season, in May or September. Early September is one of the best times, with the water having warmed up all summer making it wonderful for a refreshing dip while many of the season’s visitors will have returned home. If you plan on a peak summer visit, be sure to make your hotel reservations well in advance.

How many days do you need in Trogir?

With its prime location on the coast, Trogir makes an ideal base for exploring neighboring Split as well as enjoying day trips to the islands, while offering plenty to do on its own. With three days you’ll have time to explore the medieval Old Town along with other highlands, spend time on the beach and perhaps visit an island or two. Bisevo with its famous Blue Cave, Hvar, and Brac are all popular day trips from here.

What is the best time to visit Trogir without the crowds?

This is also when you’ll enjoy some of the most ideal sightseeing weather with temperatures averaging in the upper 60s to the mid-70s or slightly above.

What are the essential sites to see in Trogir?

In addition to the 15th-century Kamerlengo castle/fortress, there are many other must-see sites. The imposing Cathedral of St. Lawrence is part of the historic core and the most distinctive building in Trogir with its construction starting in the 12th century and was not completed for more than 300 years. As such, it illustrates all styles found in Dalmatia, though it was primarily built in Romanesque style with the vault inside gothic, built during the 15th century. Other sites include the Central Square, Town Hotel, Town Gate, and Small Loggia.

 

Is Trogir worth visiting?

As one of Croatia’s most awe-inspiring UNESCO-listed sites, Old Town Trogir is well worth your time. It offers a unique and magnificent blend of Hellenistic, Romanesque, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture. No “Game of Thrones” fan should miss it as some very memorable scenes were shot right here. The main part was used as Qarth’s trading harbor. Of course, it has an incredible castle/fortress, breathtaking views that can be enjoyed from atop medieval walls, and many beautiful beaches nearby too.
