A Walking Tour of Trogir, Croatia

trogir, croatia

Last week, I talked about how we spent our first day around Split, Croatia. Today, I wanted to share how we ended the day after exploring Krka Falls. Our tour guide was from a small town in Croatia, one that happened to be on our ride home from the falls…so of corse we wanted to stop and hear about his town!

I had heard about Trogir, Croatia in my research prior to our honeymoon, but I hadn’t looked into it very much because I knew we would have a busy day once we arrived in Split. I’m really happy we were able to stop, and explore the area. There is so much history and personal stories that we heard, it was quite an experience.

Trogir is still a running town, with about 10,000 people in total, it is also considered a UNESO protected location. In the past, the town belonged to Venice, and eventually became a part of Croatia. The island portion of Trogir is the most well-preserved gothic complex is all of southern Europe, which can easily be noticed in the church in the square. It was amazing how much of the architecture looked untouched and finished. Croatia truly knows how to keep the beauty in their culture.

    THAT WATER. So so so beautiful. And the architecture is to die for! The more I read your honeymoon posts, the more I’m like, “Croatia is on my travel list?” and I’m still confused cause I never thought I’d say that, but it just looks so beautiful!

    That’s so awesome that y’all had time to stop during your trip back from Split, and it’s even more amazing that the town was able to preserve it’s history! Everything about Trogir looks absolutely stunning!

      I was so amazed by the quality of everything and how they were able to keep each detail intact. It really must take work and amazing people living in that area.

    We stopped off in Trogir on our way back to Split airport, because we didn’t have time to make it all the way into Split. I was a bit disappointed because didn’t think Trogir was going to be up to much, but oh man was I wrong. I was completely blown away by the place. It was stunning! Now I’d go back in a heartbeat. Definitely an unsung hero.
