Since 1997 Trogir has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
Trogir is located just thirty minutes west of Split by car. The old town is located on an island, accessible by bridges from the mainland. Trogir is a unique example of a well preserved Romanesque island town, founded by Greeks from Vis in the third century BC. The name comes from the Greek ´tragos´ (male goat).
Numerous churches, towers and palace witness to the remarkably interesting and significant past of Trogir.
Let us illustrate you just a little…
In 1271, Trogir had the first pharmacy in Europe close to the main city square.
Between St.Marko and Fortress Kamerlengo is an interesting circular colonnade of the Glorijet, built in honour of Marmont, the Napoleon Marshall in 1809.
The amount of beauty and sights in such a small place is astonishing.
Watching the old town and its beautiful historic buildings is a real treat for most of the year!
