Trogir, small historic town on the Adriatic coast, only half an hour driving from Split is an ideal place for a day trip if you are on a vacation in Split.

The heart of Trogir is small islet, which you can walk around in about 20 minutes, laying between the gentle hills on the mainland and the coast of the Island of Čiovo. In the past, the town was one of the cultural centers of Dalmatia, it has a 2300 years of continuous urban tradition. Its culture was created under the influence of the ancient Greeks, and then the Romans, and Venetians. Trogir has a high concentration of palaces, churches, and towers, as well as a fortress on a small island, and in 1997 was inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List as it is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe.

Trogir is a jewel encased in 15th-century walls. Tiny medieval streets wind through the enchanting town revealing hidden restaurants and eye-catching galleries. A wide seaside promenade snakes around the town, culminating in a charming port full of sailboats waiting to take you to the islands of Drvenik Mali and Drvenik Veli with their pristine sand beaches and secluded coves. Trogir also offers a lot of sights that are worth visiting. Must-see sights are: Cathedral of Saint Lawrence with its remarkable portal by Master Radovan, the Kamerlengo Fortress, the Town Gate, the Čipiko Palace, the Town Hall, the Church of Saint Nicholas, the city museum, the picture gallery and the ‘Kairos’ art collection.

You can reach Trogir very easily, 30 minutes with your car or a taxi, but also you can take a bus number 37 which runs every 20 minutes on workdays and every half an hour on weekends. Bus station for this line is located less than 5 minutes walking from the Hotel Globo Split. So don’t miss this opportunity for a great day trip after which you can just take a good night rest in our cozy hotel rooms.
