    When most tourists head to Croatia, they go to either Dubrovnik or Split. I wanted something a bit quieter and a little bit off the beaten path so I chose the quaint town of Trogir as my base to explore the northern section of the Adriatic coast.

    Located just a short distance from Split, Trogir is situated on a tiny island between Čiovo and mainland Croatia. There’s a bridge that connects the old city to the mainland and it’s only about a five minute walk to cross the bridge!

    Trogir is a UNESCO World Heritage site; chock full of Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period. The old part of the town is filled with narrow cobblestone streets lined with private and commercial establishments. It’s a great place for a stroll and the views are charming both day and night.

    Trogir is a quaint and charming little place but it’s also a lively town, filled with pleasant cafes and restaurants and a wonderful little fish market. I loved being on the promenade and just people watching.

    The bays around Trogir hide beaches that offer all the best of the Adriatic coast but just enough away from the maddening crowds that you can really soak in the local life. Just ask a local resident for suggestions on where to go.
