Trogir

For our last day with Solange we headed for the town of Trogir and Seget Marina. We arrived from Rogač just before lunch and got a cab into town.

Trogir is a medieval town on an island between mainland Croatia and the larger island of Ciovo. It was once a walled town although much of the wall has gone now but the narrow streets remain.

Trogir was apparently founded in the3rd Century BC by the Greeks from Vis. The town was a Roman possession and suffered at the hands of the Slavs who attacked nearby Salona, who residents fled to Diocletians Palace st Spilt or to Trogir.

The town is really nice. Most of the buildings date from the Ventian period between the 13th and 16th centurys so again we found the narrow streets and tall stone built buildings which gave a hint of how the town originally felt. The streets are now an endless run of restaurants and tourist shops but the feel of the place is good, better than Split which felt to me rather impersonal and lacking a real character. Wandering through the tiny streets and squares of Trogir wad really enjoyable. Even the old Town Quay, reserved for super yachts, didn’t look too out of place!

And so on Tuesday morning we said our goodbyes to Solange and saw her off on a taxi to the airport. It was lovely to see her again and we really appreciated her visit after flying from Abu Dhabi to the UK then to Split and then back to the UK.

So where next? As it happened Graeme and Jayne had just visited the Krka National Park and the waterfalls above Skradin. The pictures Jayne sent were fantastic so that’s where we headed for.
