Trogir has been a famous Croatian tourist spot for many years. Also known as "Croatian Venice", Trogir is famous for its masterpiece romanesque Cathedral, promenade near the sea called "Riva", fortress Kamerlengo, and other architectural masterpieces of art. Besides that, Trogir features a great location: the city called Split is located just 20 kilometers away.

Just like other tourist destinations, Trogir was affected by a coronavirus pandemic over the last 15 months. The 2020 season featured only a few visitors.

I went for a walk around the town on May 27, 2021, to check if the visitors are back.

Experience of Trogir in May 2021

While walking around the town, I could notice that the first visitors have already arrived. Although their number is significantly decreased compared to May 2019, it's really nice again to hear tourists speaking all kinds of foreign languages.

Most of the tourist spots in Trogir have already opened its door, while the others are planned to reopen in June.
The most interesting place in Trogir, the Cathedral, is open for visitors with an entrance fee of 30 kunas. Fortress Kamerlengo should reopen soon.

Just as expected, there are no public gatherings yet in Trogir, just like in other places in Europe. We expect the first events to be held in June.

If you are thinking about whether to visit Trogir or not these days, I recommend you to do so. Especially if you are not bothered by the lack of public events: it may be even an advantage since you will have the more intimate and individualistic type of vacation. You will enjoy the various monuments and architectural achievements made by Venice, which ruled Trogir for a few decades.
