Trogir is on the UNESCO's World Heritage List and it absolutely deserves it! As soon as you cross a little bridge you will come into the city that is, for a reason, called "The Museum City." The town has preserved its history through the architecture, gastronomy and local residents. Trogir got its name in ancient times, when the Greek settlement was founded and named Tragurion- the Goat Island. Scattered throughout the town, numerous examples of Gothic, Romanesque and Renaissance architecture can be found. All of the architecture is complemented by the local stone. A defensive wall surrounds the old town, which was formed between the 13th and 15th centuries. On the main square is the Town Lodge from the 14th century and behind it is the oldest church (along with many others) in Trogir (9th century), Clock Tower, Ćipiko Palace, which stands opposite to the Town Hall from the 15th century. Kamerlengo Tower and Tower of St. Mark, once connected by walls, guarded the land and sea access to the town. In the preserved wall, remains can be found of a Renaissance town gate from 1593, along with defensive towers.
