Trogir is a harbour town not far from the city of Split. The historic centre is positioned on a little island between the island of Čiovo and the Croatian mainland. The historic centre has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.



Sights and Activities

The main sites, which are all included on the UNESCO site include:

  • City gates and city walls
  • The core centre with many churches and the oldest buildings dating back to the 13th century
  • Fortress Kamerlengo
  • Duke's Palace
  • Cathedral of St. Lawrence

Outside of the city, there are a number of excellent beaches, including Okrug beach just 5 kilometres south of Trogir which is the best and most popular beach in the area, and is even nicknamed 'Copacabana' by the locals.

As one of the key parts of a fast developing sail-tourism market in Croatia, Trogir is also the home-base for a number of yacht companies or the starting point for sailing holidays - it is possible to charter a yacht bareboat (if you have qualifications) or with a skipper (if you don't) to enable you to explore the local islands like Hvar, Vis and Brac.




Trogir has a typical Meditarranean climate with warm and dry summers and relatively wet but mild winters. Temperatures from June to early September mostly are around the 30 °C mark, while days in winter (December to February) are mostly in the 10-15 °C range. Nights are typically about 10 °C cooler.

Bus station is located just opposite ofthe airport and bus runs every twenty minutes.

Regular buses connect Trogir with smaller towns along the coast and inland, but also with Split and Zadar. The buses to Split go every 20 minutes or so, stop at the airport of Split, and take about 45 minutes to reach Trogir.

Once a week there is ferry from Split to Trogir, but it's hardly an alternative.

If you have your own boat or yacht, there are three different yacht marinas in Trogir, including a government sponsored ACI marina just north of the city (about a fifteen minute walk away from the centre) and is of a good standard, with wifi and a swimming pool.

Trogir can easily be explored on foot in half a day or so. The bus station is just across the bridge to the old town.

Hrvatska Posta is the national postal service of Croatia and has pretty fast and reliable service throughout the country and internationally. It takes several days by airmail to other countries in Europe, but over a week to the US for example. They have a direct link to the pricelist, where you can see the prices of sending postcards, letters and parcels both domestically as well as to other countries. Post boxes are yellow in Croatia and the times of collections are indicated on the box. The opening times of post offices vary, but mostly they are open from 8:00am to 7:00pm Monday to Friday and until 2:00pm on Saturdays, though some might keep shorter or even a longer hours, just ask around. You can buy stamps here, or at newsstands. Prices start at around 10Kn for sending a letter or postcard to neighbouring countries, a few more further away. If you want to send packages internationally, it might be better to check companies like FedEx, TNT, DHL or UPS. They are reliable, fast and usually not much more expensive than Croatia's postal service.
