Summer Sailing in Central Dalmatia – Day 2. Trogir
In the morning we left the small Zaton marina and headed south to our first destination Trogir. Our sail was quite uneventful (which is actually not a bad thing) and very nice nevertheless.
We arrived early afternoon to the ACI marina, that was our choice because from there you can simply walk to the old town through the bridge. Honestly I was expecting “just another” Croatian seaside city but Trogir was the most beautiful I have been so far in the country, so we were excited to go and explore it.
When we crossed the bridge and entered the old town the first thing we bumped into was mini flea market – but not the one who tries to sell old unusable garbage – only old but nice and tasteful ornaments mainly with maritime origin.
We had a great stroll in the narrow streets with old stone houses and small squares. We had a cafe in a bar with 3 tables outside and met a captain from Switzerland who was writing a book and shared some stories with us. We were roaming the alleys until the sun went down, then we started to look for some dinner. After this day in the beautiful city we had high expectations for the dinner but unfortunately after walking around for another hour, checking tripadvisor and google for reviews and popping in some promising places we could not find the right one. After a certain time we had something of course but honestly I can not even recall where and what eat so most likely it was not very memorable, I think some average konoba food with french fries and cevapcici. I guess it was our fault, but it is a good opportunity to return for some gastronomical delights 🙂
After dinner we returned to the boat, we were watching the city lights and the castle from the cockpit with a late sundowner
