Trogir, Croatia

We arrived and anchored a short distance away from the island of Trogir, Croatia about 9 am. We did not schedule any tours, just a slow day wandering around the small old town. The island city of Trogir dates back over 4,000 years and is one of the oldest cities in the Mediterranean. If you've never been to Croatia, then a tour to Split and Diocletian's palace would be in order. It's a short way across the bay. We had the chance to visit Split last year.

Trogir is a very small place with narrow streets. We walked through the town and enjoyed a few drinks at a local cafe by the water, and purchased a few handmade souvenirs. The rest of the day and evening was spent visiting with new friends, who engaged us in the team trivia contests .

Pre-cruise Posts

On our last cruise we visited Dubrovnik and Split in Croatia. Both cities were beautiful and unique. Dubrovnik and its ancient walls and history of revolution in the 1990s; Split and Diocletian's Palace.

Trogir is described on the Silversea site as " The island-city of Trogir dates back 4,000 years, and is among the oldest cities on the Mediterranean. Situated between the mainland and Ciovo Island on the western entrance of the bay where Salona once stood, Trogir is believed to be the main town of the Roman Illyricum. It is highlighted by a Medieval townscape with classical foundations that has survived nearly intact to this day.

Trogir is defined as one of the most beautiful and artistically-inspired islands in the world. ‘Historia Naturalis’, an ancient work by Plinije, defines its place and destiny in the history of urbanism, architecture and sculpture. ‘Tragurium marmore noturn’ reveals that Trogir was famous by its artists; marble masters during Roman times. "

Wikipedia describes it as " Trogir has 2300 years of continuous urban tradition. Its culture was created under the influence of the ancient Greeks, and then the Romans, and Venetians. Trogir has a high concentration of palaces, churches, and towers, as well as a fortress on a small island, and in 1997 was inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List. "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", says the UNESCO report.

Trogir is the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex not only in the Adriatic, but in all of Central Europe. Trogir's medieval core, surrounded by walls, comprises a preserved castle and tower and a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Trogir's grandest building is the church of St. Lawrence, whose main west portal is a masterpiece by Radovan, and the most significant work of the Romanesque-Gothic style in Croatia."



What we plan to do:

There are no planned ship excursions in Trogir so we will do our own research and develop a walking plan to visit the Old Town area. It's a short walk from where we will dock so it should be easy to do our own exploration.
