Just behind Split airport, Trogir offers intricate medieval architecture, Dalmatian waterside dining and a busy market, from the mainland across two interlinked islands. Occupying the middle one of Trogir itself, the entire historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site, a testament to its heavyweight cultural importance. Two yacht marinas accommodate higher-spending visitors while a younger crowd hits the seafront nightspots of adjoining Čiovo island. Don’t expect the manic bustle of nearby Split – nor overbearing hordes in summer.
RECOMMENDED: where to sleep, eat and drink in Trogir.
