As much as we loved seeing sights in Split, Croatia, we decided to split town for a day trip. We hopped a bus at the main bus station, traveled about 15 miles west and landed in yet another UNESCO Heritage Site, Trogir. The historic town blankets the small island that is a stone’s throw from the mainland and accessible via a short bridge. We walked the circumference in about 30 minutes, but spent longer aimlessly wandering the narrow alleyways of the town center. Here’s a look at the picturesque town during our day trip to Trogir:
Welcome to Trogir! An UNESCO Heritage Site, the historic town sits on a small island.
This waterway is all that separates the island of Trogir from the mainland,.
The Cathedral of St. Lawrence bell tower took more than 200 years to build and incorporates Gothic, Venetian Gothic and Renaissance architecture.
The Cathedral of St. Lawrence is on Trogir’s main square.
Trogir’s main square filled with historic buildings and the cathedral is expansive in comparison to the narrow alleyways.
We walked the cobblestone streets of Trogir’s town center – finding evidence of daily life along the way.
Sveti Kriz translates to Holy Cross, not Saint Kris, as we first thought. Good photo op, nonetheless!
We were looking forward to views from the lookout tower at the Kamerlengo Fortress, but encountered locked gates. So it goes in the off-season!
The harbor is lined with boats and the promenade has a bevy of inviting cafes for visitors, but in the off-season, there were serving more locals than tourists.
