Fortress of St. Marc
Defending fortress of St. Marc is situated on north-west end of Trogir islet, built by Venetians in the 15th century for defense from Turks. It was the part of the west defense line together with fortress Kamerlengo, connected with it by the walls which disappeared after numerous battles. This picture was taken from the Fortress of Kamerlengo and as you can see in between there is a footbal stadium, no such exist in whole the world.
When you come to Trogir, the first thing you'll see is this entrance; it's the one of two entranes in the old town. Inside you'll find a little square with different artists selling their paintings . For me it's a special place 'cause that pictures show all beauty of Cropatian coast and you can always have an interesting chat with these painters.
Tower of the Town Clock
Situated between the church of St. Mary and Town Loggia, on the church of St. Sebastijan is getting up the Tower of Town Clock. The church of St. Sebastijan, from 1477, was built as the vow for the salvation from the plague.
A tower called "Torre delle Catene" (tower of the chains) was built in 1380 by the Genovese. The Venetian took the city in 1420, enhanced the tower and added the small Kamerlengo fortress (1420-1437, by Master Marin Radoj). The name comes from "camerarius", the name of the officer that was in charge of the budget at the court ("camera") of the Prince.

Trogir - General Impressions
This is a beautiful, but very small old city. You can easily see all there is to see within 1-2 hours. However, it *is* a must-see if visiting Croatia, as its main square, and some of the buildings next to it, are uniquely beautiful. It is very close to Split and easy to get to from there. If coming by car, there is a convenient parking lot within a 200 meter walk of the old city. If coming from the north (Sibenik), you'll see it on the right just before the main approach road to the old city. If coming from the east (Split), it is on the left, just past the bus station and the main approach road to the old city
