SALONA & TROGIR – WHERE IT ALL STARTED FROM
The history of Dalmatia is a long one and its beginnings are shrouded in mystery. We'll start our journey through time in Salona, the most important archeological site in Croatia. If you are a history enthusiast as we are, you will be fascinated by the ancient ruins and the stories they tell.
You will discover how the once mighty town of 60 000 people and a birthplace of Roman Emperor Diocletian swiftly declined in its importance in the beginning of the middle ages and was deserted and uninhabited ever since.
Next stop on the journey through the ages is Trogir. „The Stone Beauty" is an excellent example of over two millennia of urban continuity. Its historic center is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. We will explore the narrow streets, majestic Cathedral of St Lawrence with its stunning Portal, palaces and much more in this charming „museum town".
It is said that Greek god of happy moment wanders the streets and if you catch it by its hair you will get your share of happy moments. Try not to miss him!
