The name of the little town originates from the greek denomination Tragurion (settlement on the goat hill). Trogir is located 25 km west of Split and since the venetian time in the 15. century, where the picturesque old town with many monuments was shaped, it is called Trau.
Since 1997 the historic city of Trogir has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
Trogir’s rich culture was created under the influence of old Greeks, Romans, and Venetians. It is the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex not only in the Adriatic, but in all of Central Europe. Trogir’s medieval core, surrounded by walls, comprises a preserved castle and tower and a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods.
As an atrificial island Trogir is connected by little bridges to both the main land and the island Ciovo.
The big daily fish, fruits and vegetables market at the gate to the old town is where the “Trogirani” buy their daily fresh food from the local area.
Trogir was the coulisse for many movies, e.g. Dr. Who and Winnetou, to name just a few.
