This week Marinanow invites you to Croatia to discover the SCT Marina Trogir: an ideal place to moor your boat and go to the splendid islands of Central Dalmatia.
Trogir: between Sea and History
Trogir is one of the most beautiful towns in Central Dalmatia and overlooks the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea.
This area is characterized by whitewashed beaches, a crystalline sea, islands with hills covered with lavender, small medieval and Renaissance cities and Roman ruins. However, what captures the soul of the tourist is undoubtedly the Dalmatian hospitality and the joy of his people, that will accompany you on your itinerary between picturesque centres and characteristic harbours.
Due to its mild Mediterranean climate, Trogir is one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Croatia.
It is a small gem surrounded by 15th century walls and one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe – a fascinating place to stroll and enjoy the view and the scent of the sea.
The heart of Trogir is made up of an islet, situated between the mainland and the island of Čiovo and linked to these by bridges, which houses the historic center of the city, considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The city, which has about 13,000 inhabitants, is located in the largest metropolitan area of Split with over 400,000 inhabitants.
Stretched stone alleys drift along the city, revealing angles of rare beauty among small hidden restaurants, shops and arcades. A wide promenade winds around the city, culminating in a fascinating harbour full of sailing boats ready to sail to the islands of Drvenik Mali and Drvenik Veli, with their pristine beaches and their creeks.
In a pleasant combination of Romanesque and Renaissance architecture, Trogir boasts the spectacular Venetian cathedral of St. Lovro, a fifteenth-century town hall and the Church of St. John the Baptist with its beautiful carved portal.
Starting from Trogir and heading east or west you will encounter a large number of beautiful beaches.
About 3 km from Trogir, on the island of Čiovo (connected by a bridge), the town of Okrug Gornji stretches out, characterized by a 1 km long beach where you can enjoy a drink by the sea or spend wonderful evenings in the numerous bars overlooking the bay.
Within a short drive, visitors can explore the ancient ruins of the Roman city of Solin or head for Split with its commercial harbour, residential areas, shops and restaurants located in the incredible ruins of Diocletian’s Palace.
With such a rich heritage of history, sea and territory, naval construction and tourism are undoubtedly the main economic activities of the area.
