      party places in Trogir?

      by norimolnar Online Now Jul 20, 2015 at 2:03 AM

      Hey! :)
      We are going to Trogir with my family and with my friend. I've seen that there are some bars in Trogir,but is there any nightclubs? I know that there is a club in Ciovo called Club Monacco, do you know something about that? How far is Ciovo from Trogir by walk? And we are 17. I will turn 18 in September. Is there any chance that we can go into these clubs,or we can buy alcohol? I don't know how strict it is in Croatia.
      thank you for your helping! :)

    • Advice on trip to Trogir? Thanks!

      by jemma1234 Online Now Jul 13, 2014 at 5:01 PM

      I am staying in an apartment in Trogir for a week in August and was wondering if anyone would be able to give me some advice on a few things?

      1 - I am going with family and a friend, I don't plan to spend much time with family of an evening, was wondering how much money I would need for the week for mainly cigarettes and alcohol? I am not a huge drinker but do like to drink a fair amount whilst on holiday and smoke a lot, does anyone know rough prices of cigarettes and alcohol in Croatia?

      2 - I've heard that Trogir is very boring of a night time is this correct? If so how easy would it be for me to travel to other parts of the country that are more lively and preferably close by as do not want to spend to much on travel?

      3- Which options do I have if I want to travel into Split from Trogir of a night time, is it only taxis or are there other ways and how much time will I spend travelling to Split from Trogir and what will the costs roughly be of travelling?

      4- I've heard that there are no beaches in Trogir or swimming pools, is this true? if so what are the closest beaches that have a good atmosphere and are sandy?

      And finally I have been told that Ciovo is close by, is there any good night life in Ciovo or nice beaches?

      Thank you to anyone who can answer my questions!! As starting to worry that I'm going to have an awful holiday:(

      Time to spend in Trogir?

      by bct341 Online Now May 18, 2008 at 9:16 PM

      We will be driving up from Dubrovnik to the Split Airport. Since our flight is later in the day, we were thinking of taking a quick detour to Trogir before turning in our rental car at the airport. Even though the airport is close, I am sure that traffic and parking outside the city might be an issue.

      I don't know how much time we will have but the city looks small. Is it worth taking a few hours to explore? And, what would be the "don't miss" sites considering the limited time we will have?

    • Food and Fun prices please

      by mentol Online Now May 8, 2006 at 6:44 AM

      Hello guys,

      me and my friends are budgeting a trip to Trogir. I've seen that the accomodation in villas is on average 15 euros / person / night. Since the villas have kitchens we will be making food on our own too. So I am asking you guys if there are any supermarkets or things like that and if so can I see some prices somewhere? Are the prices high even in supermarkets ?

      Another thing is about museums, cathedrals, and maybe boat cruise to an island near. Can anyone help me on that ?

      Going to Split for 5 nights early July, probably will be staying in Trogir. Want to stay in nice apartment overlooking sea but very accessible by foot to Trogir. Looked at the apartments to the south of Ciovo but at 5 km away from the town too far from the centre to stroll out in the evening. Somewhere quiet, clean and doesn't have to be rock bottom price (it is our 25th wedding anniversary treat!) doesn;t need a swimming pool. Most important thing also is balcony overlooking sea.

      Any ideas!

    • Trying to plan a holiday....

      by fshort79 Online Now Jan 11, 2006 at 3:22 AM

      I went on holiday to Brela in Sept 04, and want to return to Croatia in June this year with my fiance. I want to go to Trogir this time as I took a trip there on my last holiday and thought it was gorgeous. But last time I was only there for a few hours. I want to be sure that if we are staying for a fortnight there will be enough to do (we're not really lying-on-the-beach-type people!) and good restaurants, bars etc. Any information that anyone's got about Trogir would be good, and might help ease my fiance's worries. (He thinks we're going to be stranded in the middle of nowhere!!)
      Also, I've found a pretty good deal for the Hotel Medena. Does anyone know what it's like and whether it will meet our needs? That is can we get to other places easily on foot/bus/taxi (after a few drinks!) and what is available there.

      Holiday in Trogir

      by poons Online Now Jul 28, 2005 at 4:03 AM

      First of all I would like to send my heartfelt thanks to diocletianvs, Valadelphia and croisbeauty for all their useful advise and tips which helped me greatly in organising my holiday to Croatia. We are all booked up now and going for 2 weeks, based in Trogir ---- we are so excited!!!

      I just have a few more questions at the back of my mind and wondered if anyone could help me:-

      - Taxi from Split airport to Ciovo (just near to the bridge that goes to Trogir) - how much should I expect to pay the driver?

      - Can I buy things in local currency - will bars/restaurants etc. expect me to use Euros? I always prefer to use the local currency wherever possible. Should I take only local currency, or some Euros too?

      - If I take my ATM card, are there any ATM machines near to where we are staying, Trogir & Ciovo island?

      - Just trying to work out a budget, how much do things cost nowadays in Trogir & Split, ie: meals, drinks etc.

      - Plan to spend lots of time exploring Split - is there a good way of getting multi-bus tickets and entrance to the sights/museums etc. which will be a little cheaper than buying tickets every day?

      Thanks again... I love this virtual tourist organisation, makes me feel that the world is a very small place, and that there are friends in every corner of it!!!

      Kindest regards,

      Any advise/tips please?

      by poons Online Now Jul 12, 2005 at 7:52 AM

      Hi VT people....

      Phew.. at last I've narrowed it down to two Villas... wondered if anyone knew of them:-

      Villa Dolce Vita which is situated on Ciovo about 1.5km from Trogir town.
      Villa Jidro which is right in Trogir town on the sea front.
      Both want to charge 50 Eur/night for a double apartment with breakfast for 2 people - does this sound like a good price?

      I dont quite understand the geography - Ciovo/Trogir???? could anyone explain to me please.

      What we mainly want from our visit is to be near the sea, be able to walk and explore the interesting and historic places like Trogir town, and be able to use buses or ferries to visit Split and some islands.

      Would to be accommodated in Trogir town be the best option for us do you think? or would being in the Dolce Vita Villa on Ciovo be OK?

      Thanks to anyone who can offer me advise.

      I was thinking about only spending one night in either Trogir or Split before my flight home - or are there any reasons/attractions to see that would warrant a 2 night stay before flying out?
