Trogir is a quaint harbor town in Split-Dalmatia County, Croatia. It is set within medieval walls on a tiny island and is linked to the mainland by a series of bridges. This tiny town features a wealth of restaurants and places to visit. For the shopping savvy, there are also plenty of stores and booths to satisfy the soul.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
When you step inside the gates of the city you will be greeted by a host of local artists selling paintings. You can stop and watch them create beautiful works of art on the spot. Once finished, you have the opportunity to purchase the painting. The lines are usually long at each vendor, but the paintings are inexpensive and worth the wait.
Before you cross the bridge into the main portion of the city, you will see many shops advertise gifts and specialty items. This is especially true for the markets on the outskirts of town. The majority of the souvenirs are made in other countries and shipped in. If you are looking for local crafts and quality merchandise, it’s best to avoid these shops completely. If you look closely, you can find some oddity items as well as food and drinks.
Stop By the Old Core of Town
If you are looking for handmade items by local craftsmen, be sure to visit the shops in the center of town. One such shop is Katarina. You can expect to pay a little more for the souvenirs, but they will be of good quality and include genuine items from the area. One little house on the south side of town always has new and interesting items for sale including exquisite jewelry.
