20 kilometers north of Split is Trogir, founded in the 3rd century BC. e. This is another place in Croatia that can rightfully be called a museum city. The historic old town is located on a small island, separated by a narrow channel from the mainland and a wider channel from the large island of Ciovo. The main part of the population of Trogir lives in the mainland of the city and on Ciovo.
The historical part of Trogir impresses with a unique set of palaces, temples, towers and ancient buildings, and the streets of the “old town” intertwined into a labyrinth make Trogir completely different from any other city on the Croatian coast.

There are no beaches within the city: there is a port that accepts all kinds of ships and boats, luxury yachts and motorboats. Therefore, for swimming, you need to get there – on foot, by taxi / bus or by water. In the season, from the center of Trogir, from the port, every half an hour or an hour, small ships (20-25 people) depart, which deliver tourists to the beaches: the first stop is the Meden Hotel (20-25 HRK, 10 minutes on the way); and so on. The fare depends on the distance. Starting from Medena and further north there are excellent pebble beaches with developed infrastructure – bars, ice cream parlors, mini-golf, table tennis.
All beaches in Trogir are pebbly; often come across sea urchins, so you need either slippers to enter the water, or a sharp eye to look out for “fluffy” dangerous lumps in the water.
The cost of renting two sun loungers and an umbrella for the whole day is ~ 25-70 HRK.
Shopping: Trogir shops
In the historical part of the city, on the island, there are many souvenir shops that are located on the street leading from the pedestrian bridge, as well as in the vicinity of the main square with the cathedral. There you can buy magnets, plates (from 40 HRK), sea sponges for the body (the cost depends on the size, from 50 HRK), beach bags and towels, cosmetics, T-shirts and so on. Notable is the Aqua store, which sells good quality products in a marine theme: towels, bags, cups, T-shirts and all kinds of home accessories in fashionable white and blue stripes.
For fresh vegetables and fruits, as well as slippers for entering the sea and a pareo, you should take a walk to the market. It is located between the pedestrian and vehicle bridges that connect the island to the mainland of the city. Olive oil, wine, tincture “Slivovitz” or “Travaritsa” is better to look for in nearby supermarkets: more choice, reasonable prices, quality.
