Trogir is a historic city in Croatia. It is located on the Adriatic coast in Split-Dalmatia County, and has a population of around 13,000. The city is a remarkable example of urban continuity, having been founded by Greek colonists in the 3rd century BC. The octagonal street plan was established during the Greek period, and was embellished by subsequent rulers.
Trogir was ruled by Venetians from 1420 to 1797. This long term rule yielded many outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings. The result of its long history is that Trogir today has a good number of palaces, churches and towers. The old part of Trogir is on an island.
The historic city of Trogir was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site during the 21st session of the World Heritage Committee that took place in Naples, Italy, on 1-6 December, 1997.
