Day trip to Trogir, Croatia: A photo essay

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:
