Lats & Atts Share The Sail – TROGIR, Croatia
Covid Update/Message January 2022
- As the world is still dealing with Covid and all its variants, we thought we should touch base.
- STS is still on and we are being positive. Here are a few things to think about and beware of.
- It will be EASIEST for people to plan to travel in and out of Croatia directly, and avoid country to country flights. Only flight I can find at this time is New York- Newark, to Dubrovnick, Croatia.
- We know at this point that vaccination IS REQUIRED.
- Some EU countries are requiring booster shots also, so we can assume Croatia will follow suit.
- Everyone needs a negative PCR test regardless of vax
- Everyone needs to book flexible and cancelable travel plans
- We have many roadblocks and unknowns at this time but we remain positive at this time.
We realize we all want to see other places while going to Europe and that is fine if you can pull it off. Bob and Jody will wait till Feb-March to start booking flights most likely.
May 14-21, 2022
We suggest you plan on coming in a few days early and staying a few days after to take advantage of the inexpensive lodging available, and to do some sightseeing. You can fly direct to Split airport (SPU), which is 8km from the base. The airport is an 8-minute taxi ride away. Make sure your passport is in date and valid for the duration of your stay!
Trogir is a town on the central Adriatic coast of Croatia. Its preserved old town, known for its mix of Renaissance, baroque and Romanesque buildings, lies on a small island connected to the mainland and the island of Čiovo by bridges. The 13th-century Cathedral of St. Lawrence houses the Renaissance Chapel of St. John and offers sweeping views from its bell tower. Parts of the medieval city walls remain intact.
Trogir is only 17 miles (27km) from Split, and we recommend at least making a day stop (if not longer) in Split.
Also, Trogir was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997 and is home to a number of fascinating historic sights, the best of which is the Cathedral of St Lawrence. Its proximity to Split Airport also means that Trogir is very easy to reach.
Getting to There
As mentioned, the nearest airport is Split Airport – the town is, in fact, only 3km from the airport. There is actually a direct bus from the airport to Trogir Bus Station – local bus line 37 – which stops on the road outside the airport (i.e. not outside the terminal building); journey time is 10 minutes. As the town is so close to the airport, you might also consider getting a taxi
