Trogir, Croatia

November 23, 2008

While we were in Split, we took a day trip to the walled town of Trogir.  We grabbed a city bus and were there in about 45 minutes.

It’s a small town, probably not more than a mile on a side.  There’s been a town on the same spot for the past 2300 years, inhabited at various times by Greeks, Romans, Venetians and Croats.  It ‘s on a small island between the mainland and the much larger island of Ciovo and is surrounded by calm waters.  There were some amazing yachts from all over the world tied up along the promenade outside the city walls.

It’s a gem of a town with narrow streets that wind among it’s beautiful buildings.  The centerpiece of the town is the Cathedral of St Lovro (Lawrence) with its 150 ft bell tower.  From the top you can see out across the city and beyond but but be prepared for some narrow steps.  Add in a lively breeze and you have a hair-raising climb.

Anyway, here are our better pictures.
