TROGIR, CROATIA

Heading south to Dubrovnik where we will depart for Corfu, there is a tendency to want to revisit places that we have already been.  It is comforting to know where the best restaurant is, or the post office, or the local Konzum (Croatian’s largest supermarket chain). 

After leaving Primosten, we headed south and east in the general direction of Split where Excalibur and Glass Slipper had headed, but decided that it would be fun to visit the town of Trogir just west of Split.

Trogir is located on the mainland coast, although the town is officially on an island connected by small bridges.  We traveled around the Old Town by dinghy passing under bridges so low that we had to duck our heads.

In many respects it is a mini-version of Split with a palm tree lined quay dotted with trendy cafes and restaurants.  What is doesn’t have is the commercial traffic, especially ferries that cause Split Harbor to be less than tranquil.

Instead of tying up at the quay (for a mere 30 kuna per meter—about $60 US) we opted for the cheaper and less busy option of anchoring just off the town and traveling by dinghy to visit the sites which include an impressive castle.

Trogir is connected to a larger island, Otok Ciovo by a bridge as well.  The bridge doesn’t open for boat traffic and you have to approach the town by either west or east.

The area is densely populated, as is prevalent in this area of the coastline—Split is the largest city in Croatia located on the Adriatic.

After touring the town, we sat under an umbrella along the quay for a late afternoon drink while Jolie snoozed in her bag.

Seeing new places never gets old.  We will have fond memories of Destiny anchored off this lovely Croatian town.
