Another UNESCO city only 25 km from Split is city Trogir, just near the airport. Trogir is actually an island connected by to bridges to the mainland and another island, Čiovo. Also known as “city museum”, since there are so many monuments on such a small place. Trogir is not an ancient city such as Split (although there are Greek ruins beneath the medieval town), but in Trogir there are plenty of masterpieces of famous local sculptors. The old square of Trogir is considered as the fourth the most beautiful in Europe, and the most monumental building is St. Lawrence Cathedral with the 47 meters high bell tower.
On the way from Trogir to Split, there lies the capital of Roman province Dalmatia – ancient Salona, city established by Julius Caesar in 1st century. Unfortunately, Salona was used by quarry, so very little is left of ancient city – but we can still see remaining of amphitheater, Roman baths and so much more.
