Trogir is a historic town and harbour on the Adriatic coast in Split-Dalmatia County, Croatia. It is one of the best stops on the Dalmatian coast. The town was founded by Greek colonists from the Island of Vis in the 3rd century BC. On this Antique matrix lies the historical core of Trogir, which is the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex not only in the Adriatic but in all of Central Europe.
