Trilj – also known as ‘the City of Bridges’ due to its historical importance for the Dalmatian Hinterland, is situated only 40 kilometers from Split. It was founded in prehistoric times near the most important crossing over Cetina river, and it is today a true paradise for nature lovers, adventurers, and travellers. This is the perfect place for an active holiday that will let you experience a special bond between man and nature. Visitors can choose between white water rafting, kayaking, canyoning, horseback riding, hiking, mountaineering, as well as cycling. The 25,5-kilometers-long ‘Mlinice‘ cycling path, which passes by 5 old mills at the source of Grab river, offers a picturesque experience of nature. The city of Trilj, with its surrounding villages, can be proud of its enormous cultural, architectural, and sacral heritage. The remains of a Roman legionary camp Tilurium, situated in the village of Gardun, as well as the remains of an ancient pavement that was a part of a Roman road connecting the city of Salona with the hinterland of the Roman province of Dalmatia, deserve a special mention. On the southern slope of Kamešnica, there is a locality called ‘Na Mašete’, where an archeological site of a cemetary with tombstones is located. Additionally, there are two pretty impressive fortresses: Čačvina Fort, also known as ‘the guardian of Cetina area’, built on a hill northeast of Trilj, and Nutjak Fort on the right bank of the river Cetina, 3 kilometers downstream from Trilj. Several collections from different historical time periods, which consist of a large number of artefacts of cultural importance, are held in the Trilj Regional Museum. The city of Trilj is famous for its bridges that connect the two banks of the river Cetina, amongst which the ‘Old Bridge’ has become a must-see for those visiting the city.
