Most people who go on sailing tours along the Croatian coast will visit the major coastal cities like Split and Dubrovnik. Those cities are great to explore, but if you are looking to experience something different on your sailing vacation, you may want to try visiting the city of Trogir. Trogir is a medium sized medieval city along the northern coast of Croatia. Trogir is a popular city for filmmakers, and once you see it you will understand why. It is a picturesque city with winding streets and old stone buildings. If you decide to stop at Trogir during your sailing vacation, here are some things you absolutely must do.
Visit Fortress Kamerlengo -
Fortress Kamerlengo is a medieval fort that overlooks the city. There is a small entry fee for adults, but it is more than worth it. You will get to see an amazing view of both the city and the waters, and if you visit during the summer there are usually great music festivals being hosted in the fort.
Try the two beaches -
What better way to compliment a sailing vacation than with a day at the beach? Luckily, Trogir has two beautiful beaches for you to check out. The most popular local beach is “Okrug Gornji,” but if you want a less crowded beach you can check out the equally beautiful Riva beach.
Try the local seafood -
When you go on sailing tours you want to try the local flavor, and Trogir has you covered. The city is known for its locally caught seafood and famous fish market. There are plenty of restaurants offering amazing fresh caught seafood.
So whether you visit the city for one day at the end of a regatta in Croatia, or for a week as part of a long sailing vacation in Croatia, you should definitely try and spend some time in Trogir.
