rogir is one of those cities that you truly must explore and for which you need to take time. You will assure yourself of that after the first minute you spend in this city in central Dalmatia, on the Adriatic coast. Trogir is mostly located on a little island that is connected to the mainland

with a bridge. Greek colonialists from the island of Vis, who established the island community in the 3rd century B.C., defined its appearance, recognizable for its orthogonal street plan. Leaders who later governed continued to embellish various buildings and fortresses, Romanesque churches and Renaissance

Due to its extremely well preserved condition of the old city center, UNESCO has protected Trogir, added to its list of World Heritage Sites and awarded it the status of the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic city in Central Europe.
