Croatia: A Day Wandering in Trogir

Croatia: A Day Wandering in Trogir, Trogir, Croatia (B)

Trogir must have been one of the easiest day trips I have ever done on the fly. Literally, because we managed to fit in a day in Trogir en route between Split and the airport. The buses were very easy to coordinate and it is a lovely little old town to explore.

Trogir is just 20 kilometres west down the coast from Split. It has been designated a Unesco World Heritage Site due to its being an example of urban continuity. It started out as a Greek settlement and the street plan dates from the Hellenistic period. It also has a number of beautiful Romanesque churches and stunning Venetian architecture from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

From Split we turned up in the morning and caught a bus from the station just across from the ferry terminal (we arrived from the gorgeous island of Hvar). It was a bus heading northwards to Rijeka and cost only 24 Kroner each plus another 8K for putting a case in the hold.

On the way back we caught the local number 37 bus from Trogir to Split that stops at the airport and runs every 20 minutes. This only cost 15K each. Note that the bus stops on the road outside the airport – it is not far to walk but don’t wait for the bus to pull into the airport itself! You could also catch this bus to get to Trogir but from the central Split bus station rather than down by the ferry terminal. ......
