Plan your Travels to Trogir
The medieval town of Trogir, located less than 30 minutes from Split, sits on a small island that’s linked by a bridge to the mainland. It boasts a long, rich history with its roots going back to the 3rd century BC when Doric Greeks founded a trading port here and is widely regarded as the most well-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex in not only the Adriatic but throughout Central Europe.

Trip to Trogir FAQs
When to visit Trogir
Trogir is best visited between May and September, with the weather warmest in July and August. Avoid the peak heat and the peak crowds by coming at either end of the popular tourist season, in May or September. Early September is one of the best times, with the water having warmed up all summer making it wonderful for a refreshing dip while many of the season’s visitors will have returned home. If you plan on a peak summer visit, be sure to make your hotel reservations well in advance.
What is the best time to visit Trogir without the crowds?
The best time of year to visit Trogir without big crowds is in the months of May or October. This is also when you’ll enjoy some of the most ideal sightseeing weather with temperatures averaging in the upper 60s to the mid-70s or slightly above. If you’re here during a busier month, plan to go early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
What are the essential sites to see in Trogir?
In addition to the 15th-century Kamerlengo castle/fortress, there are many other must-see sites. The imposing Cathedral of St. Lawrence is part of the historic core and the most distinctive building in Trogir with its construction starting in the 12th century and was not completed for more than 300 years. As such, it illustrates all styles found in Dalmatia, though it was primarily built in Romanesque style with the vault inside gothic, built during the 15th century. Other sites include the Central Square, Town Hotel, Town Gate, and Small Loggia.
