I am back to let you know more about my sailing trip on the Adriatic. On my previous post (check it here), I told you about the first part of this trip. To sum it up, I started in Split and then headed to the Blue Lagoon on a sailing boat. Then, I hopped on a motorboat and stopped in Maslinica, on the island of Šolta.
On this post, I’ll tell you where I went next which was…
After being in Maslinica, my group and I visited Trogir. I actually didn’t know we were going next, so it was a surprise.
Trogir is located in Dalmatia and it’s very close to the city of Split. It’s actually a small island that’s connected by bridge with the mainland Croatia. As you can also see in the picture below, it’s situated right by the island of Čiovo.
The historical center of Trogir is one of the UNESCO Heritage Sites in Croatia. The city has amazing architecture and religious importance. The city center is full of charming little streets, with buildings that date back to the 13th – 15th centuries.
As you walk through Trogir’s historical center, you’ll eventually reach its seaside promenade. You’ll find tons of bars and cafes in the city’s Riva. Also, palm trees and benches, perfect to enjoy the city’s vibe and views.
When my group and I arrived with the motorboat, we stopped in Trogir’s promenade. Upon our arrival, this was the view we had in front of us:
The Kamerlengo castle is one of the city’s highlights. It was built in the 15th century and its located by the water, right at the entrance of Trogir. It honestly seems that the castle was taken from a fairytale… During the summer months, a number of performances and concerts take place inside the castle.
After walking and exploring the city some more and eating an ice cream in the hopes of fighting the hot hot weather, we went back to the motorboat and said goodbye to Trogir.
The trip back
Since it was almost the end of the day, we catch the sunset on our way back to Split. We were sailing fast on the motorboat which was exciting. Feeling the wind was quite refreshing and liberating.
Overall, it was one of my best trips. Going on a sailing trip in Croatia is very popular for many tourists. Now that I went on one, I can tell you it’s definitely something. If you want to do one, my advice is to check what islands and cities you want to visit and make a budget – as they can be quite expensive.
I hope you enjoyed my little adventure and that it can help you plan a future sailing trip!
