Trogir is a town-museum in the very meaning of the word. Lovers of cultural and historical monuments, art, original architecture and nice alleys are given the opportunity in Trogir to learn about the manifold and complex heritage - from the Romanesque yard to the modern interiors. The unique historical core, Radovan's portal, the art collections which have been arousing excitement among visitors and travellers for centuries offer a tourist beauty, personified in the relief of Kairos as an appropriate souvenir. The wider surroundings of Trogir (Trogir - Seget - Ciovo Riviera) is characterized by lavish green vegetation, numerous islands and islets, rocky and pebble beaches. Apart from delicious domestic food, fish dishes in par-ticular, the sports and recreation offer includes many opportunities - tennis, boccia, bowling, jogging, surfing school, diving. Entertainment includes lively fishermen's nights and folklore show but also classical music concerts in special scenic sets of the town.

Beaches there are gravel, sandy, rocky and, in order to make the approach to them easier, partly concrete. The most popular ones are:
The Kava beach (in Slatine) - it is situated on the end of the east side of Ciovo, 12 km far from the centre of Trogir, and it is one of unspoiled natural beauties. In order to get there, you have to pass through a village Slatine and drive little more than 4 km to the east along mostly gravel and, on some places, very rough road.



                         Historical, cultural and nature heritage

Trogir is also called the "city-museum" because each rock and building has its own importance for a specific period of history. In the 1997, Trogir's old city centre was put into the UNESCO's list of the world's monumental heritage. From rich cultural offer, we single out:
