At the time of its greatest prosperity (3rd and 4th century), Salona had approximately 40,000 inhabitants while Split did not even existed. Archaeologists have excavated remains of temples, an amphitheatre, early Christian churches, burial grounds and Roman baths which shows centuries of prosperity and upheavals, serenity and war. We can certainly say that this is the most important excavation sight from the Roman times in Croatia.
After the tour through ancient ruins of Salona you will continue toward charming town of Trogir driving along the beautiful Riviera of the Seven Castles.
Situated in a small island squeezed in between the mainland and the larger island of Ciovo, Trogir is connected to the mainland with a bridge. Except for the green parks the entire island is occupied by spectacular constructions: bleached stone houses, palaces, churches, monasteries, towers, walls etc.
The streets are narrow and they truly give a feel of how life might have been in the old days. You will visit the main attraction in Trogir – the Cathedral of St. Lawrence.
This 13th century building is probably the finest example of sacral architecture in Croatia. The unusual construction with three naves and three semi circular apses dominates the whole town. The main portal carved by the local artist “Radovan” in the 13th century is world famous. Other fine buildings that will be viewed are the Town Loggia decorated with stone carvings, including one by great Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic, the Town Hall, the Cipiko Palace etc. Actually the whole town is like an open-air museum so just to take a stroll through narrow streets will be an unforgettable experience.
After visiting Trogir you will have some free time and opportunity to explore town on your own, before boarding the coach to drive back to the Split. Return to the ship.
