Find yourself walking through a typical medieval city which has been completely adapted to the modern living over the years. While the number of bars, ice-cream shops, restaurants, souvenir shops, and pastry shops may portray a jammed touristic place, there is something much deeper in the buildings and native people around you. This vivid little town surprises its visitors with beautiful architecture and a laid-back living of a Mediterranean atmosphere that’s almost tangible here. Explore every hidden corner of Trogir, enter the famous St. Lawrence Cathedral, listen to the local klapa singing in the town loggia in their characteristic traditional polyphonic a capella way about life, sea and love. Pass by the famous Benedictine monastery of St. Nicolas and then continue through the main street until you reach a wide seaside promenade.Enjoy your well deserved lunch in a local restaurant on the promenade and then explore the knotted streets on your own a bit more during your free time in Trogir.
