Following the Masters’ marks
Welcome to Trogir, the City of Masters
Due to its geographical position, Trogir has always been the perfect place for living. With its naturally protected port, many springs of drinking water, fertile soil in the hinterland, and stone from local quarries, Trogir has been inhabited for more than 3, 600 years. This inspiring Mediterranean city has attracted many great masters ever since the time of the ancient Greeks. These masters lived in Trogir and created some of their most famous masterpieces here. Various artists, writers, craftsmen, and travelers found their inspiration in Trogir and have left behind numerous marks of their work.
Trogir is the city of Masters, the city which slowly but convincingly pulls us into an enchanted labyrinth of beauty, into narrow stone streets made of yellow smooth stone. The colors of the stone remind us of the colors of the warm, afternoon sun.
This city of Masters began its master story with the portal of Master Radovan, Muscardelli, Aleši, Blaž Jurjev Trogiranin, Firentinac, and Duknović. These masters marked a turning point in the history of Trogir, placing it at the very top of the art world.
Over the centuries, Trogir has turned into a magnificent treasury with many historical and cultural monuments, so UNESCO placed it on the list of protected cultural sites in 1997.
