Trogir is a beautiful little city located by road about 30 kilometers from Split. It actually lies very close to Split airport Resnik and is very easy to get to. Although easy to get to, one must be prepared to lose a lot of time because the little town and the surrounding roads are a one huge traffic jam all the time. The reason for this is this is that the only connection to Ciovo island is a tiny bridge in the middle of Trogir which is barely wide enough for two cars to pass each other. It is a very popular tourist destination and there is a lot of accomodation in and around town including some of the major resorts. The best idea for this may be private accomodation on Ciovo which is a large island with beautiful nature and a lot of beaches while getting back to Trogir is a matter of minutes. The old town of Trogir is located on a tiny island between mainland and Ciovo. It is a beautiful medieval place which is no wonder as for the most of its history it was under the influence of Venice.

The promenade itself has loads of restaurants and bars and the nightlife is very lively here. During the season the town gets overflown with tourists from all over the world and this gives it even more character athough those looking for peace and quiet may find it troubling.
