Ultimate Travel Guide for Trogir in Croatia
From stone-paved streets to multiple clock towers Trogir is a medieval paradise. Trogir is a small nautical town located about 30 minutes outside of Split. The stunning city was built in 1476 and is one of the best-preserved places in all of Europe.
This guide will feature the best hotels, choice restaurants, and top attractions in all of Trogir in Croatia.
Where to Stay in Trogir
So Trogir in Croatia is only 500 meters long and 250 meter wide, with it being this size it makes it easy to navigate by foot. Whether you stay in the “island center” or just across the bridge both will put you close to the heart of Trogir. While spending a month in Trogir I had a chance to stay in quite a few different places, below are my favorite in order.
Brown Beach House $$-$$$
This is the most luxurious hotel in all of Trogir. The hotel features a glass pool that overlooks the water. From day beds to a spa this pool is perfect for a romantic getaway. It also has an amazing restaurant and bar next to the pool. The free breakfast is delicious and is made to order. Some of my other favorites were the fresh iced coffee and house champagne.
If this hotel is a little out of your budget the pool offers day passes for 200 kuna in season. I would recommend showing up in person for the best price.
These apartments are located about a 15 minute walk from the town, however, do have their advantages. First off they have a full kitchen and washing machine. Also, apartments feature a balcony with a view of the sea. This was my favorite for doing yoga early in the morning or reading a book mid-afternoon. I would recommend this to someone who is looking to stay in Trogir a bit longer as it is a proper apartment.
