Trogir is the city of Masters, the city which slowly but convincingly pulls us into an enchanted labyrinth of beauty, into narrow stone streets made of yellow smooth stone. The colors of the stone remind us of the colors of the warm, afternoon sun.
This city of Masters began its master story with the portal of Master Radovan, Muscardelli, Aleši, Blaž Jurjev Trogiranin, Firentinac, and Duknović. These masters marked a turning point in the history of Trogir, placing it at the very top of the art world.
Over the centuries, Trogir has turned into a magnificent treasury with many historical and cultural monuments, so UNESCO placed it on the list of protected cultural sites in 1997.
