Trogir is a town with over 2300 years of tradition. Its rich culture was created under the influence of the ancient Greeks, Romans and Venetians. Trogir, with its concentration of palaces, churches, towers, and the fortress on a small island deserves the nickname "the Stone of Beauty".

It is located in Split-Dalmatia County and lies on a small island in the sea-passage between the mainland and the island of Ciovo, with which it is connected by a bridge. The Adriatic highway connects it with all the settlements in Dalmatia and in close proximity at only 4 kilometres away there is the Split Airport.

Trogir is predominantly a tourist destination with a mild Mediterranean climate. The historical town centre is a unique cultural monument, which in 1997 was listed on the UNESCO list of world heritage. The basic elements of medieval fortified town structure as well as its characteristically placed streets and squares have been kept to date in the urban and architectural core of the old town, thereby making Trogir one of the most important cultural goods on the Croatian territory.

Located in the area of Mediterranean climate, with its 2700 sunny hours per year Trogir is a real treasure among other Croatian tourist destinations.
