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.
Above is the view from above Trogir, before we went down into the town. In the distance you can see Split.
