Founded by Greek settlers in 3rd century BC, the town of Trogir is one of the oldest urban areas on Adriatic shore. Today a part of Croatia, it is regarded to be the best preserved Roman-Gothic settlement on European continent. But you don’t need to be an expert of historical cores in order to recognize Trogir’s fascinating beauty and centuries-long existence. No visitor of this site leaves without a positive impression. Especially if one leaves through the gates of Trogir.
With a clear view of Ciovo Island, the gates of Trogir are a testimony of centuries which passed in Dalmatian region. Who knows which historical persons passed below their old stones? Does anyone care to take a guess?
