Best local dish: Traditional Croatian dishes are cooked and stored under a 'peka', a clay pot directly over the fireplace. Meat, squid and octopus are roasted with potatoes and vegetables for a delicious, flavorful meal. Many local farms produce their own olive oil, so make sure to stock up on this Croatian delicacy while in Trogir.
Local culture: A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Trogir has almost 2,500 years of history and culture with influences from Ancient Greece, the Romans and Venetians. The medieval part of the city has some of the best preserved buildings, houses and churches in the entirety of Central Europe. The architecture of Trogir is simply breathtaking and the best way to see the town is by foot, so take your time to walk the cobbled streets.
Best beach: Medena Beach lies along the Seget Riviera and is surrounded by a pinewood forest. It also has some water sports activities to enjoy, including beach volleyball and a basketball court. For a sandy oasis, visit Kava Beach.
IYC recommends: For amazing views of the town and surrounding hills, climb the tower of the St. Lawrence Cathedral. Kamerlengo Castle is an excellent place to spend a few hours and learn more about the history of Trogir and the various influences on the town.
