The ancient Croatian city of Trogir on the Adriatic coast is alive with history
I am a historian from Split, Croatia and my biggest passion is travelling to discover historically significant places. I have been impressed by many of the important historical locations I have visited across Europe, but as the saying goes, ‘there is no place like home’. And for me that means the beautiful, ancient and brilliantly preserved city of Trogir on the Adriatic coast of Croatia. The fact that this city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site gives you an idea how magnificent it is.
Similarly, the Benedictine monastery of Saint Nicholas is rich with history. Established in 1064 by Saint Ivan of Trogir, the monastery has been populated by an order of nuns for nearly 1000 years. This order has played a pivotal role in Trogir’s religious and cultural history and the monastery boasts many treasures of art and literature including a famous collection of Croatian Vartal texts written by the poet Petar Lučić in the 16th Century.
I am from Split in Croatia. I am a historian and I love to travel around Europe to visit sights with major significance in human history. I’d also love to visit the Taj Mahal in India.
