Enchanting medieval harbour town
Holidays in Trogir take you to a medieval harbour town situated on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast. Lose yourself among the magnificent marble buildings, which reflect the gorgeous blue-green hues of the Adriatic Sea. The enchanting walled old town of Trogir is located on an island, accessible only by bridges from the mainland. The beautiful town is steeped in history, and this is reflected in Trogir’s UNESCO World Heritage status. Trogir holidays are ideal for both couples and families: there is plenty of culture, sightseeing, relaxing beaches and boutique shopping.
Soak up some culture and visit St Lawrence cathedral, or take a walk to Kamerlengo fortress for breath taking views of Trogir and the Adriatic Sea. After sightseeing you can unwind in the many restaurants and cafes, or experience a konoba, a traditional restaurant which serve regional specialties and the best Croatian dishes. Pantan Beach is a great spot, and with lots of restaurants and beach bars nearby, you can easily find a bite to eat after spending a day in the sun. Trogir’s enviable location means you can hop on a boat and explore the neighbouring Dalmatian islands too. Each island is unique, and like Trogir there is so much history and culture to uncover. Split is only 30 minutes away by car if you are looking for a cosmopolitan day trip.
The renaissance architecture found all over the island makes Trogir a true luxury destination, and when you choose Sovereign you only get the best hotels in the best locations. Staying in Trogir is all about the finer things in life. You can enjoy delicious seafood dishes, which only use the freshest caught fish – while getting views of the sun setting over the Adriatic Sea. If you want to enjoy Trogir’s nightlife, you can head to one of the chic bars and enjoy a cocktail or two after a busy day of exploring.
For a truly lavish stay Sovereign has selected the Brown Beach House. With a private pebble beach it’s ideal for those who want to relax and listen to the sounds of the sea. Each room has been carefully designed and styled with beautiful contemporary furnishings. Spend some time in the onsite spa, or unwind by the pool as staff serve you drinks.
Flights from the UK to Croatia take around 2 hours 30 minutes.
July and August are the hottest months (temperatures can reach into the mid-30s) and attract the most visitors. June, September and October are great months to visit. It's less busy, plus the weather tends to be warm and dry (spot on for sightseeing).
Tipping is becoming more commonplace in Croatia, especially in more upmarket establishments where around 10% has become the norm. In bars and more casual restaurants, just leave the coins in your change. At your hotel, tip porters and maids 15 kuna or so. Taxi drivers don’t expect a tip, but it’s a nice gesture to round up the fare.
The official language of Croatia is Croatian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
