Beautiful Churches of Croatia; Croatia Week

Croatia – Historic City of Trogir

There are many breathtaking architectural sacral monuments around Croatia, such as the Cathedral in the eastern town of Osijek, and many other beautiful churches in Slavonia and Zagorje.

The stunning Church of St. Euphemia in Rovinj and Euphrasian Basilica in Poreč, as well as numerous examples of Medieval, Gothic and Renaissance architecture along the Adriatic coast, makes it difficult to compile a list of the most beautiful.

But here are 11 Churches worth checking out on your travels.

St. Lawrence Cathedral – Trogir

Built in the 13th century, this cathedral is one of the most famous monuments of Trogir and UNESCO protected world heritage, built in Romanesque and Baroque style. The main entrance leads through the portal of Radovan, a masterpiece of art built in 1340. The bell tower is 47 m high and is one of the most beautiful on the entire Mediterranean coast.

St. James Cathedral – Šibenik

As the most significant architectural achievement of the 15th and 16th century in Croatia, the Cathedral was included in the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage.

The 10 Most Amazing Island Cities Throughout the Globe; Luxatic

Croatia – Historic City of Trogir

Cities have existed for thousands of years. They’ve evolved so much from the ancient times, keeping pace with the technological growth and today we consider them the heart of any country. Not that we love them so much, but they offer all the means we need for housing, transportation, sanitation, utilities, land use and communication. Simply put, they’re comfortable.

We love some, we adore others, but sometimes we can hate them for their crowded streets, superficiality in human interaction, lack of opportunities or the bad services offered. For that matter, some of us would love to spend their life or at least a vacation now and then surrounded by a lovely countryside or on a nice island, but with all the comfort that a city provides.

Speaking of islands, there are several big, important cities around the world that have islands you can dream of or in some areas in the world there are even entire island cities that are not just impressive, but very attractive for both people seeking out to move in such a place or those who only want a getaway.

Looking for a Luxury Apartment in Trogir’s UNESCO Historic Centre?; Paul Bradbury; Total Croatia News

Croatia – Historic City of Trogir

Continuing our look at the luxury Croatian real estate market through the eyes of the impressive portfolio of Sotheby’s Croatia International Realty on December 22, 2017, a delightful treasure in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the old town of Trogir.

I never tire of walking around the spectacular and historic old stone towns of Dalmatia. They breathe history and tradition, and there is always something of interest around the corner.

One of the most fascinating things about them – to me at least – is just how different they look from different angles and perspectives. Walking around the towns in the streets is a very egalitarian experience, but when it comes to looking at the streets from the apartments and villas of the towns, that is when it becomes interesting.

House Hunting in … Croatia; Alison Gregor; NY Times

Croatia – Historic City of Trogir



This recently renovated apartment is on the second floor of a traditional Dalmatian stone house built in 1928 in the historic center of the island city of Trogir, a Unesco World Heritage site.

The 2,120-square-foot apartment has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a 408-square-foot private roof deck with a spa and a smaller terrace; the furniture, by Croatian designers like Prostoria, is included in the asking price.

The entry hallway has original arches and Italian tile floors. Beyond the bathroom to the right of the front door is a kitchen-and-dining area with French doors that open to a terrace.

Health kick in Croatia: a paleo regime on the luscious Adriatic coast; Alex Clark; The Guardian

Croatia – Historic City of Trogir

The path to health and fitness doesn’t have to mean tough love. This seaside break provides fresh seafood, rest, relaxation – and a visit to a Game of Thrones location.

The first relief: there is coffee. The cave-dwellers inspiring the version of the paleo regime on offer at Hotel Ola, a stone’s throw from Split airport, clearly needed their morning pick-me-up as much as I do. Also, they obviously appreciated a modest glass of wine now and again, which is surely fair, given that grapes can be hunter-gathered and fermented, can’t they?

As this might suggest, I’ve come to Croatia not because my body is a temple, but because it’s a two-up, two-down (with chunky ground-floor extension) in need of a little loving restoration. Some of the decor is a bit worse for wear, and the fuses keep blowing.

UNESCO Protected Town of Trogir Celebrates its Day; Croatia Week

The people of the UNESCO protected town of Trogir celebrate Saint Ivan Trogiranin (John of Trogir) Day today on 14 November.

Locals in the historic Dalmatian coastal town have celebrated their Patron Saint as the town’s day since 1992.

Trogir is situated near the city of Split on a small island between the Croatian toda and the island of Čiovo. Today it boasts a population of around 12,000 people.

Today organised festivities took place in Trogir to celebrate Saint Ivan Trogiranin who was the bishop of Trogir, and a Christian saint who lived in the 11th century.

He was originally a Benedictine monk in the monastery of Saint Peter in Osor, located on the island of Cres. Ivan was eventually consecrated as the bishop of Trogir upon the citizen’s request by Laurentinus, Archbishop of Split.
