A Day in Trogir, Croatia

Trogir, about an hour north of Split in Croatia, is a quintessential medieval town sitting on a small island in the Adriatic Sea. Connected by short bridges from the mainland, it almost feels as if Trogir sits on the banks of a large river, and not as an island.

Trogir can be visited leisurely in roughly half a day, and is an easy drive from big city Split. Just like Sibenik, we were impressed by it’s network of arches and narrow alley ways – the frequency and number of which we hadn’t seen anywhere in our travels to medieval towns in Europe.

It was as if the entire down had been dug up from sandstone by an army of moles in beautiful aesthetic proportions. This gallery is an homage to the archway city of Trogir.
