Historic Trogir

Trogir's history stretches over many years of continuous urban tradition. Its culture was created first under the influence of the ancient Greeks, and then further shaped by the Romans and Venetians.


Trogir's medieval core, surrounded by walls, comprises a preserved castle and tower as well as a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. It was due to this extensive history and stunning Venetian architecture that in 1997 Trogir was included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.  

One of Trogir's grandest buildings is the church of St Lawerence whose main west portal is considered the most significant work of the Romanesque-Gothic style in Croatia.

  • Historical city core, with about 10 churches and numerous buildings from the 13th century
