Trogir and Ciovo

Walking through the magical streets of Trogir is a wonderful experience. It is an ancient town, laid down according to classical architectural rules from Greek and Roman times. Trogir is a UNESCO world heritage site and regarded as the best preserved Romanesque-Gothic town in Central Europe. In the middle age period Renaissance palaces and houses were built by the Venetian rulers of this area, and they are still there. As you walk through beautiful narrow cobbled streets you can glimpse medieval churches with stone carved doorways, shaded piazzas, Juliet balconies, arched medieval windows with exquisite carved pillars and rosettes. The towns fortifications were established in the 13th and 14th centuries and the principal forts on the seaward side of the town still stand.

Today Trogir is a lively tourist destination. Restaurants, simple and sophisticated, cafes and bars are located along a splendid harbour front that is busy day and night as well as in the quiet alleyways and narrow passages of the old town. The waterfront is a constant source of activity with sailing and motor yachts that are cruising the Adriatic passing through.


The old town is linked by a small bridge to the island of Ciovo. Ciovo offers the best swimming with, excellent beaches, some very busy, and some wild and deserted. The most popular is Saldun Bay overlooking the Trogir marina. The beach has cafes and restaurants, water sports and diving. Another good beach is Mavarscica, a pebbly bay lined with pine trees. On two small nearby islands, Drvenik Veli and Drvenik Mali, which are easily reached by a boat you can enjoy peaceful sandy beaches.



Split, the main port for travel to the Adriatic islands, is also home to the Diocletian Palace, built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian at the end of the third century AD. The Palace forms the core of the old town and has been adapted and remodelled throughout the ages so that it displays a breath-taking mix of architecture from the Roman through to the later Venetian period.

Louise Reddon writing in The Daily Telegraph captured the atmosphere of Split perfectly: When Emperor Diocletian was considering retirement from governing the Roman Empire, he shopped around, found no decent rest homes and decided to build his own. And so Split was born. This magnificent walled city palace was built to Diocletian's exacting standards, and today retains enough original charms to attract visitors by the thousands. Amid the remnants of his grand residences, there is a pleasingly workaday town. Pavement cafès, cosy bars and plenty of shops mix with two lively markets and chic apartments built from the very barracks where Diocletian's soldiers once lived. Visit this 1700-year-old living museum during Split‘s Summer Festival in which cultural events are often staged in the open air. Drinking cocktails with the posing parade along the ritzy palm-lined ‘Riva‘ promenade. Afterwards, head to house-music haunt, Caffe Bar Fluid, and sit outside on steps that lead to the little-known second tier of the palace. Bacvice beach, a 15-minute stroll east, has buzzy nightclubs.
