Croatia Cruising Companion and Trogir

Trogir's Kamerlengo Castle

Readers please note today’s posting on sister blog Croatia Cruising Companion with details on a new marina in Trogir to come.

Trogir has a special place in our hearts as not only is it one of the most popular Croatian cruising destinations but it was also our first home in Croatia. This lovely UNESCO protected medieval walled town, with its cobbled streets, intriguing squares, bustling Riva (seaside promenade), stunning cathedral and elegant castle has a life all year round and just about everything you could wish for – a wide choice of hotels (old and new), a vast variety of cafés, bars, restaurants, tourist offers and shops, a vibrant summer festival, a fish market, a fruit and vegetable market and, of course, a rich history told by the many ancient buildings. What’s more it’s just a 15 minute drive from Split airport, half an hour by car to Split itself and only an hour and a half’s drive away from Zadar Airport. Inter city coaches to Dubrovnik or Zadar, for example, pick up and drop off in Trogir and there are ferries from Trogir to the nearby islands of Veli and Mali Drvenik as well as between Trogir, Slatine on Čiovo island and Split though the latter only run in the season.

For the best swimming you’ll need to walk or drive across the bridge to Čiovo island or take the seasonal ferry to Slatine.

Today’s photo shows Trogir’s Kamerlengo Castle and, beyond that, in the distance, the location of the new marina.
