With over 2,500 years of urban history Trogir has lived through the influences of rulers such as the Romans, Greeks and Venetians. The legacy its history has left behind can be seen in its palaces, churches and other buildings. Some remnants can be seen in the Cairo collection which can be marveled at in the Benedictine monastery and includes artifacts from several eras. Venetian heritage is particularly obvious in the city loggia, which started being built in 1308, but whose construction was stopped by the Venetians in the 15th century. The formative Trogir image owes its look to the Romans, who separated the center from the mainland and thus paved the way for making it a Unseco World Heritage Site. Roman heritage is, therefore, felt throughout the old town: from in the small streets up to near the waterfront. In the evening you should take the opportunity to walk through the winding streets, listen to music festivals with classical and folk music or take in the delights of the traditional taverns' local kitchen. The food consists of fresh fish that comes from traditional fishing, wine that is locally grown and a sweet dessert, like "rafioli" for which Trogir is known for. Later, you can go to one of the bars, taverns or pubs to enjoy the evening and enjoy the historic ambiance. An exciting nightlife can also be found in the nightclubs of Trogir, Ciovo Island, and in Split.
