July the 6th, 2023 – The Sun, a British publication read by many, has decided to shine the spotlight on what is calls Croatia’s “little Venice” – the Dalmatian town of Trogir which lies close to Split.

While The Sun seems to have skipped past the very easily discovered fact that there are a few so-called “little Venices” in Croatia, Vrboska on the island of Hvar perhaps being the most quaint and well known of all, Trogir is indeed a gorgeous place.

the Sun refers to Trogir as underrated

The Sun is a publication that I won’t express my personal opinion on, and that’s a statement that many British people who know of this paper will understand. It says that Trogir is a Croatian city that is “underrated”. The paper has claimed how flights there, which actually go to Split Airport, are fairly cheap from the UK. We at TCN aren’t sure this is a fantastic thing to advertise given the epidemic of drunken Brits (among other Western European nationalities) ruining the likes of nearby Split. Trogir doesn’t really need to be infected by that same virus, so that’s all I’ll say on the matter of “cheapness”.

The old town of Trogir is, as you’ll already know unlike many of The Sun’s readers, often called “little Venice”. Although most people familiar with Croatia will know that this title is typically proudly taken by Vrboska. Conde Nast Traveller named Trogir one of Europe’s “most underrated” destinations earlier this year, and Accor named it the second best destination for travellers interested in beaches and culture.

The Sun added that UNESCO has included this old town in its extensive list of world heritage, but the paper emphasises that there are also numerous attractions, cafes, and restaurants that you can enjoy, many of which are located along the promenade by the sea.

The town is also popular for sailing holidays, with two marinas serving as home to numerous luxury yachts and boat trips. Tourists also flock to Trogir during the summer for live music festivals including Moondance and KulaKula.

The Sun details some more items, such as popular dishes and how cheap (there’s that word again) accommodation can be found in and around Trogir.

Our take on Trogir

We at TCN absolutely adore Trogir for a multitude of reasons which go beyond how cheap things are and beaches, which lets face it, are buzzwords that should drag a person to a booze-filled bender in Benidorm or Costa del Sol, not the Croatian coast.

Our Trogir in a Page, as well as this article, will provide you with absolutely everything you need to know about this utterly fantastic UNESCO protected town on the glorious Dalmatian coast.
