Originally situated on an island just
off the mainland, Trogir is now part of a man-made isthmus connecting the
larger island of Ciovo. It is one of the oldest towns on the Mediterranean,
having been occupied by different groups since at least 2,000 BCE. Presently
it is a good stop for those who want to experience a promenade, some city
walls, and great hospitality away from the better-known of the Croatian
cities. Entering the old town walls from the mainland, the statue of Blessed
John of Trogir, dating from the early 1400s, welcomes you to his domain.
