Undiscovered treasure Trogir. But it’s not for long. Since recently, Trogir was undiscovered treasure skipped by the most travellers coming to Croatia, just passing by this Mediterranean jewel, on their way to Split, Dalmatian islands or all way on south to Dubrovnik. But in the last few year things have changed and Trogir became a newborn touristic star that gets really crowded during the summer season.
