Trogir, today a part of the Split metropolitan area, is a peaceful harbour town in Southern Croatia. Trogir is famous especially for its historical old town, which is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List for being one of the most-preserved medieval towns in Europe.
Even though Trogir is often visited as a side trip from Split, its extremely convenient location makes it a good base to explore the Croatian coast. It is well worth an overnight visit as the old town of Trogir gets even more pleasant by night as the day trippers take the bus #37 (every twenty to thirty minutes) back to Split and let you wander on the narrow cobbled streets at your own pace. In addition, the view from the nearby hill is breathtaking at night.
A wide range of accommodation is offered, including hostels in Trogir, five-star hotels, and plushy apartments and simple rooms in the private houseowners’ homes -- follow the “sobe” signs to find the most suitable option for you. If desperate, ladies offering accommodation in private rooms will be found around the bus station.
In case you want to stay in a specific Trogir hostel or guesthouse, an advance booking is highly recommended. The most popular places are likely to be fully booked well in advance in high season from mid-June to late August, though you can always find a bed somewhere if not too choosy. Hotels and hostels in Trogir usually provide Wi-Fi and breakfast, the latter possibly for an extra cost.
Apart from touring in the old town, a visit to Trogir is not complete without a trip to the island of Čiovo, a beach bummer’s paradise located some three kilometers from Trogir. In addition, consider a day trip to beautiful Šibenik, a town hosting Saint James Cathedral, another UNESCO World Heritage Site.
