Starting off in Trogir, place of a happy moment, where every street tells its own story. Place by the sea, full of entertainment possibilities in important historical sights (like concerts in Kamerlengo) give you a special feeling. Piece of traditional rafiol pastry gives the strength to continue the drive to our next station – Šibenik. City of Šibenik is famous for St. Jacob’s cathedral, which is well preserved, and a real exemplar of UNESCO protected heritage. There is also St. Michael’s fortress, a beautiful city point with an amazing view, which was used for defensive purposes. After Trogir and Šibenik, we are leaving the city noise and running to an authentic place called Jurlinovi dvori. In this tiny village, the history is still alive. Understand the origin of people in Dalmatia and experience how the people in Dalmatia lived before, and all that while grabbing a bite and listening about interesting stories!
If you are searching for happiness, Trogir is the place for you. It is located on Dalmatian coast just outside of Split and a 5-minute drive away from the Split airport. Trogir has been known as the ‘open museum town’. Some sights in the town are Cathedral of St. Lawrence with its remarkable portal by master Radovan from the 12th century, the Kamerlengo fortress 13th-16th century, the Town gate from 16th century, the Town hall, museum, several palaces… You will be surprised to find out that the first pharmacy in Europe opened in 1271 was located in this small town. Moreover, the most important of all, you have to try trogirski rafiol pastry– one of the specialties in Dalmatia. Explore one of the oldest towns on the Adriatic coast with our local guide.
Šibenik has a rich historical and cultural heritage. Interesting fact is that only five cities in the world can take pride in having two UNESCO monuments and guess what – Šibenik is one of them! Magnificent St. Jacobs cathedral and St. Michaels fortress are under UNESCO protection and make Šibenik greater than all other Croatian cities.
After Šibenik, our tour takes you to the nearby Primošten. Don Stipe Perkov, an enthusiastic priest who has restored the traditional stone settlement, put in these walls a breath of life; and into them, a long, great story is carved. The tiny village has been in his family for many generations and he is now the sole heir. The 300 years old stone houses have many stories to tell. They leave a trace we can truly see and feel at the same time – our legacy.
