Zadar to Split via Trogir

 

Zadar to TrogirWe stopped in Trogir en route to Split. The town was highly recommended by Tony at Villa Diana and it was a stop well worth it. We spent about two hours wandering within the walled the orthogonal street plan of the old town and stopped for a very delicious lunch of grilled Grouper, Squid, Sardines and Mussels.

Trogir sits on the Adriatic coast and its old town is known for its mix of Renaissance, Boroque and Romanesque buildings. In the 3rd century BC, Tragurion was founded by Greek colonists from the island of Vis and it developed into a major port until the Roman period. In 1997, the historic centre of Trogir has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites for its Venetian architecture. Needless to say, very interesting and full of remarkable and well-preserved history.
