Historical Core of Trogir

Trogir is an excellent example of urban continuity. The orthogonal street plan of this island settlement originates from the Hellenic era – consecutive rulers continued to decorate it with exceptional public and residential buildings and forts.

The most significant building is the Trogir Cathedral with its west portal, a masterpiece of Radovan and the most significant example of roman and gothic art in Croatia.
The historical core has developed between the 13th and 15th century within the city walls and was reconstructed by Venice in the 15th century. Two of the buildings from the same century, which have survived up to now, are Kamerlengo Citadel and St. Mark’s Tower. Trogir used to be one of the most significant cultural centers of Dalmatia.
