A DAY IN TROGIR, CROATIA

Trogir, is located between Zadar and Split and is the perfect place to go for a day trip or too spend 1-2 days. With it being a small town, you avoid the inevitable travel crowds and not surrounded by tourists coming off cruise ships. It is the best place to enjoy the atmosphere as the locals do. If you’re a lover of photography, this is the place for you.

At every corner in Trogir, you find beautiful architecture, stunning sea views, high views to see the city above. Not to mention Trogir’s Old Town was voted best city-island in the world by National Geographic in 2015.

Today’s post is a mixture of a #photojournal in my series. Check out Zadar, Croatia’s here. And also a ‘What to Do in Trogir’.

Enjoy the Sea Views

Kamerlango Castle

At the tip of the town, lies Kamerlango Castle. A 14th-century fortress, this castle still stands proud at the waterfront. The structure was built by the Republic of Venice to guard the city and control access to the harbour.

The Cathedral Of St. Lawrence

The Cathedral is a Roman Catholic Church that was constructed in the Romanesque-Gothic style, which can also be found in other parts of Dalmatia. This church is also listed as a UNESCO site, as well as the whole town, in 1997 as a world heritage site because of its Venetian architecture.

Pantan Beach

I didn’t get to go (over- beaches). But this is a must see place .

Local Farmers Market

Located 100 meters from the bus station you’ll find a beautiful market with local vendors selling all types of goods and trinkets.

Hostel Series: Zadar, Croatia

The month of October! What a year it has been! This month I am focusing on highlighting some of the hostels I’ve been in with my hostel series. How do you even Survive a Hostel? Well, I went into a lot of details for you all in that post. So, today we’re starting of talking about Downtown Boutique Hostel.

This place exceeded my expectations and really set the bar high for hostels. I hope to come across to this place again in the future. Good news is they are currently open during COVID times however, with a different set up in place.

This hostel is one of the best, I think you’ll ever stay in. The reception is so friendly and theres a map provided to direct you around town. They also offer day tours and there is a nice kitchenette perfect for backpackers and a chill vibe.

You also receive a discount to the restaurant beside the hostel. In addition, breakfast is offered at 8 Euros.

Rating on My Scale:

Security – 10

Atmosphere – 8

Cleanliness – 10

Facilities – 10

Staff – 10

Location- 10

Value for Money – 10

Overall Score: 9/10.

I unfortunately didn’t get a photo of the front lobby, but I did get photos of all the important things!

Right when you walk in you’ll notice the Hostel Sign which will have their WIFI Passcode and Name. Usually, you’ll find this everywhere in all the hostels.

Front Entrance Sign

Then, you’ll typically find the lounge right away where you can make friends/chill out in the evenings. This lounge also had a small kitchenette to make breakfast in the morning which was nice.

The Common Lounge

Some hostels give you keys, others, give you cards. For this particular hostel, the entrance to your room was the 204- fob and the Key was for your locker.

Now, we have what you’ve been wondering about… The bed SITUATION honestly, this has been the best room I ever stayed in. Although… when i think about it the Wombat Hostel in Venice was very nice as well.

6- Female Bedroom, with windows that looked towards the streets.
My Bunk was the Bottom, I LOVED that this hostel had drapes for each bunk.
MASSIVE LOCKERS! To store all your belongings
The Shared Washroom with the floor. (There was more on the other side)
This hostel was very accommodating, they had both an elevator and stairs for people on the top floors.
