Take three white-stone Christian quarters of Jerusalem, minify them twofold, then add a pinch of Bruges and little bit of Venice, flavor it with perfect meat and seafood dishes and serve together with delicious Croatian sorts of white wine – and you will receive a medieval seaside dollish town Trogir in Croatia, located near to Split.
Trogir traces its history from the antique times. That time it was called Tragurion. It was founded by Greeks in 3rd century BC and in times grew in the big port.
Tiny streets, paved with stone, somewhere ancient, somewhere newer, but always white, bring you to the picturesque shacks almost on every street corner. You take your camera and shoot charming views practically in every single moment.
Getting tires you enter one of the numerous cafes and order a glass of cold white wine from the Croatian vineyards. And that’s it – the cheering drink picks you up in a moment and you are ready to hunt the views again.
You may visit any café for a late diner or an early supper, you are okay with fairly good pasta or pizza, but if you are a foodie, we searched some for you and by means of comparison of the culinary art of different chiefs we prepared a special tip. The best steaks and rumsteaks, as well as seafood dishes in Trogir, are cooked in a restaurant named Capo.
Afterwards you may seat for hours in any café on the embankment under the palms (but don’t order anything, except water or white wine there) and observe mooring yachts and the associated cheeriness of the promenading people. Peaceful and calm. Warm and dry, but not so hot anymore. Have a rest.
May be you like night promenades? Very wisely. Try to walk at night and you will get into a fairy tale. Trogir at night is very enigmatic, as well as any small European medieval town.
Are you irritated with the crowds of tourists dressed in trunks and T-shirts? No problem. Come to Trogir in October. There are no trunks and T-shirts anymore, it’s not yet cold, the restaurants are open, prices in a hotels are lower for 30% and excellent Croatian cuisine is at your disposal, and all the medieval atmosphere of ancient Torgir with its white walls and pavements is fully yours. Enjoy piece and silence.
