Family trip to Ciovo Island with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Ciovo is an ideal place for family holidays. On the one hand, this is the island with the largest influx of tourists, with untouched nature, and kilometers of hiking trails leading a curious explorer to the certain sights. On the other hand, getting from Ciovo to the mainland is easier than ever: you just need to cross the bridge to Trogir and then another bridge to the mainland of Croatia. The island is also just 25 kilometers from Split. Trogir is connected with Split and some other nearby cities in Croatia by bus routes. Actually, there are a lot of different sights on Ciovo, so any child here will increase his knowledge of the world history.

It is easy to get to its central part from the island: just cross the bridge, located on the territory of the “new” Trogir, which is on Ciovo itself. You can walk through the old town, telling the child about the history of this ancient settlement. Having been ruled by the Romans, the Byzantines, the Croats, the Hungarians, the Venetians, and the Turks, Trogir will willingly or unwillingly introduce the child to each of these cultures.
You can observe together the Cathedral of St. Lawrence, built in the 13th century on the foundation of the ruined basilica. The young art admirers will enjoy the 13th-century portal, carved benches, and a painted crucifix from the 15th century, as well as an original candlestick in the shape of a cross. Amature architects will surely love the Chapel of the Blessed John Of Trogir, where you can see architectural solutions of the Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance styles. The boys will surely enjoy the 15th-century Kamerlengo Fortress, and the girls - the 13th-century Prince's Palace, where you can feel yourself like a real princess. Copyright

In Trogir, you can show your child the Romanesque Church of John the Baptist, and the Dominican gothic church on the embankment, and the neo-Gothic Cipiko palace, and the town hall, and the fragments of the ancient stone wall that once surrounded the city. There are many beautiful historical monuments outside the ancient city: the Dominican monastery of the Holy Cross, built more than 5 centuries ago, the 16th-century Monastery of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the ruins of the early Christian church of St. Fumia. You can find it on a small island near the shore of Ciovo, which you can reach if you rent a boat.
Actually, it is worth renting a boat for at least half a day and going with your child along the coast of the island. First of all, such a rest, especially for small children, is an adventure in itself, and secondly – there are places on Ciovo that look fantastic from the sea. Moreover, many bays can’t be reached from the land. If you want, you can take your child to explore the neighboring islands. Luckily, the trip is not long.
The central attraction of Ciovo is the notorious city of Trogir. It was founded in the 3rd century BC by the colonists from Syracuse. The settlement has now grown to a fairly large size and … Open
There are kilometers of pedestrian and bicycle paths on Ciovo, connecting almost all the famous settlements and sights.

A short walk around the island will be possible even for a baby. The child will be able to swim enough on any of the small pebble beaches of the island. The child can also try himself in water skiing, windsurfing, snorkeling, and yachting. In Trogir Diving Center Croatia, in the resort village of Mavarstica, the child will be able to learn all the tricks of diving.
