On the Southwest coast of Croatia just 27 kilometres up the highway from Split can be found the tiny island of Trogir. Sandwiched between the mainland and the larger island of Ciovo, in the Adriatic Sea, the historic city of Trogir has been designated a UNESCO world heritage site.

The island has seen continuous occupation for over 2,300 years from the early Hellenistic period. There are many historic buildings and fortifications, ancient Roman churches and outstanding Renaissance and Baroque examples of architecture from the Venetian period of occupation. The central medieval core is surrounded by walls and includes several towers and even a castle. The church of Saint Lawrence is the most significant work of Romanesque-Gothic style and its western portal is a masterpiece by Radovan.

Tourism and shipbuilding are the current economic drivers of this town of nearly 15,000 people, fishing and agriculture also figure prominently. There is regular daily bus service to Split and a rail service is planned.
