Trogir is one of the oldest and most exciting cities on the coast!
Contrary to popular opinion, history is not a past lost in the pages of neglected and dusty archives but is something that can be captured in a beautiful relic such as this old town.
For many tourists and travelers fascinated by Greek, Roman, and Venetian antiquity, this city is an exceptional destination.
Located in the heart of Dalmatia, just sitting by the eastern coastline of the Adriatic Sea, Trogir, prospers from a heavy traffic of tourists in search for an experience of history that they can bring home with them and share during coffee table conversations with friends and family.
