The city of Trogir was founded by the Greeks in the 3rd century BC and there are still remains of this era found here. However, in the centuries that followed different powers ruled over Trogir and the inhabitants of the city changed their attachments to different rulers a few times. The Venetians brought prosperity and growth to the city while the Saracens almost completely destroyed the city. Trogir became a UNESCO World Heritage site for its beautiful Venetian architecture.

More than 300 days filled with sunshine await you when visiting the stunning historical town of Trogir. The summers are hot and dry, while the winters are milder. However, the wind conditions are also ideal in the warmer summer months June, July and August. The Maestral winds bring a cooler breeze to the area in the summer months. Sailing season generally lasts from May until October and invites sailors from all over the world to practice their skills. July and August are the busiest and most expensive months of the year to come here for a boat holiday. You can always find cheaper boats off-season, but if you come here during the winter months the weather is a little more unpredictable and could change drastically from one moment to the next. That’s why we would only recommend more experienced sailors to come here during the winter months.
Plenty of marinas and safe bays make it the perfect place for mooring and anchoring at night without having to worry about anything.
