Travel Tips for Trogir
Just walk around the streets
The whole city is like one big open museum.
Trogir is a remarkable example of urban continuity. The orthogonal street plan of this island settlement dates back to the Hellenistic period and it was embellished by successive rulers with many fine public and domestic buildings and fortifications. Its beautiful Romanesque churches are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period.
Where ever you decide to go be sure that you can no miss anythig. Every street is interesting and what I like the most about it is that people still live and work there like it was an everyday thing!
"Glorijet", the round colonnade of clasicist form was built in 1809, honouring the French marshal Marmont.
The town of Trogir was shortly occupied by the French army, it had happened at the end of the 17th century.
There is an old palace and a new palace. This one, under renovation is the new palace and does not look too new. It still looks well worn and there is nothing inside to view if it was open. The Cipiko family ruled the reign around here for over 300 years and revered for their contribution to Trogir. Triple balustraded triple windowed effect is Venetian Gothic style from 1500's. The new and old palaces were connected by a walkway, that does no longer exist. The more famous was the Venetian admiral called Koriolan Cipiko who won a large sea battle in 1476 and built monuments as part of his spoils of war and creating his legacy.
Convent of St. Nikola
The Convent of St. Nikola is situated next to the south city walls, right behind the Viturri Tower. You cannot see much of it out of the narrow street, where it is located, except htis beautifuly made portal. The bell-tower of the convent is particularly interesting because it is of unique type in whole Croatia. As the metter of fact, it was built in the style you can noticed in Italian region of Veneto, in particularly in the provinces of Verona and Vicenza.
