  • Inside St Lawrence Cathedral

    Classified as UNESCO heritage, I think that this magnificent church, specially the chapel of Blessed John of Trogir, really deserves your careful attention, and a detailed look.

  • St Lawrence cathedral

    This was, in my humble opinion, the most remarkable cathedral I saw in Croatia. The main door, dating from the 13th century is precious. No more wars, and let it last! Please.

    The restaurant is in an unusual position. It is through a door in an alley which opens out into a courtyard. The setting is nice and is respite from the heat in the hot weather.

Trogir Nightlife

  • Drinking on the Riva

    There's not a great deal to do in Trogir at night in the way of clubbing, but everyone heads down to the Riva (the waterfront) to hang out at the bars there, such as the popular Big Daddy bar. I wouldn't bother changing from your flip flops for anything in Croatia.

  • Take a walk

    This is the tradition; when you come to Trogir in the evening, the first thing to be done is to take a walk around city. It starts with Riva, where you can see all kinds of new and big yachts (and people on them having dinner), street shops wits souvenirs,jewlery and food, street artists... Everything goes

Trogir Transportation

  • Parking CAn be Crunching

    There is basically only one place for tourist parking of vehicles, unless you may find something on the roadside-good luck on that. It is right by the secondary bridge over to the island, and right off the main road E65 that runs through the town. The way they park and wedge themselves in is everyday life; but I have to say, what a way to live. I...

  • Scooters transportation

    The best way for exploring trogir and island Ciovo is rent a motorcycle. Daily price for renting is 30 Euro a day or for seven days 165 Euro. Usually they are making a free delivery at your accommodation. At the summer season the traffic is so busy and driving the motorcycle you are saving your time.

    When strolling around, in particularly around the market place, you'll see a certain number of stands offering "souvenirs from Trogir".

Trogir Local Customs

  • A Spanish look

    Iron is used, her and there, providing a Mediterranean look, but nowhere in Croatia I saw a courtyard so clearly marrying Greek and Spanish look as in Trogir. The world is really small!

However, it is a custom and tradition all around the Mediterranean area, be it a village or town.Once the clothes was washed in the rainwater and with soap, and the starch was added only when women laundered linen and white...

Trogir Warnings and Dangers

  • Boat Jam

    Despite being accessible by car, the boat traffic in the port was very intense. This forced the boats to line waiting for their turn to dock. The commercial lines have priority, so when you think it's your turn, a ferry approaches and everyone stops waiting for the exit and entrance of hundreds of backpackers. This meant to us a long wait in the...

  • Trash is All Over

    They need to clean up the trash containers and empty them more often. There was nearly everyone full to the brim and overflowing. It was a distasteful site for what they present as such a nice island resort.

    I collect photos of "Warning, School" road signs in every country. Of course, that is especially interesting when these signs are of different styles. I have seen the first one several times in Croatia and it represent well children bursting out of school !The second is more special and I have picked it on a school bus that was parked at the bus...

Trogir Tourist Traps

  • by croatia2004 Updated Jul 5, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hello,

    I visited Croatia this June and I found Trogir very disappointing. Apart from the old town, which by the way didn't impress us much more than, say, Sibenik, for example, I found the place rather loud, dirty and full of crazy traffic. There are no decent places to bathe, there is a naval yard and an airport in the neighborhood, and most of the roads have no sidewalks. In one area we saw sewers dumping dirty water directly into the sea, in another place, garbage containers were very near the water. It may be interesting for culture tourism, but it' s definitely not worth spending more than one day there. Seafood is outrageously expensive there too!

  • Sailing

    Along the Trogir Channel side and particularly along the northern channel side of Trogir's Old Town, you'll see hundreds of boats. It's like a big boat parking lot. Some of them are simple fishing vessels and others are true pleasure crafts. With so many amazing islands and villages along the Adriatic coast, it's not a bad place to go for a sail.

    Walls and doorways of old houses are full of stories and signs about former tenants, all depends on whether the observer will notice and recognize them or not.
