I have strong memories of this little town and its stylish, relaxed and understated ambiance and atmosphere. Far removed from Dubrovnik's hordes of tourists and the crowds of partygoers in Hvar, Trogir, in my opinion, has managed to retain a certain character, a certain charm, despite the increasing popularity of the Croatian coast with European holidaymakers.
Trogir's old town, which sits on a kind of peninsula between the mainland and the island of Čiovo, is utterly beautiful, and is home to an amazing number of historic old houses and buildings. Everything in the old town is constructed from that instantly recognisable combination of white stone and ochre roof tiles.
Trogir is one of the essential places to see on the coast and deserves to be included on the itinerary of anyone visiting Croatia as a tourist. I strongly recommend sitting out on one of the terraces with a glass of one of the region's local wines and simply observing the life going on around you.
