You can enjoy a delicious seafood dinner and other Dalmatian specialties in some local tavern, surrounded by beautiful monuments, Romanesque churches, the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque chapels and patricians’ palaces. Sculptural masterpieces of famous masters Radovan, Andrea Alessi, Nicolò di Giovanni da Firenze, Iohannes Dalmata, to name just a few, are everywhere: on the buildings facades, church entrances, bell towers, above doorways, inside chapels…

When we say that Trogir is “town-museum” it is no mere figure of poetry. Trogir is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe.

Trogir monuments, buildings and work of Art are selected between very few cities in the World to represent world's culture and art treasure. Great honour for the small city.
