Trogir - two millennia of stormy history have been written on this small islet straddling the isthmus between the gentle hills and fertile plain on the mainland and the coast of the island Eiovo.
Its first pages were written long ago by the Illyrians, Greeks and Romans who built the town; it was continued in the 7th century by the Croats, who developed their autonomus municipality, whether under their own or foreign sovereigns (the Byzantine Empire, Hungary, Venice, France, Austria) into one of the most beaufiful towns on the Adriatic coast.
Trogir - this is treasury of art, or a "Town-Museum" (UNESCO protection) as the famous Berenson put it. Ancient Kairos, Roman fragments and inscriptions, and rustic Early Croatien art will compete for our attention.
We shall stand enraptured before the Romanesque portal of master Radovan, and admire the Gothic and Reneissance masterpieces of Gojkovic, Alesi, Duknovic and Nikola Firentinac. We shall feel the coolness of the sturdy walls and bastions, the lush beauty of the cathedral, the mystique of the streets and vaults, the harmony of color and form of the paintings, miniatures and carving. In the quiet of the museums, treasuries, art collections and old libraries, amidst the monuments in stone, we shall follow the continuity of living and man`s creativity in this climate where the sun and sea, stone and nature, have merged with life.
