Ciovo

Čiovo is a small island in the middle part of Dalmatia, located southwest of Split and south of Trogir, with the tallest speak being Rudine at 209 meters above sea level. The eastern part of the island is less than 2 km away from the cape of the Marjan hill close to Split.

The island is accessible by a road across two bridges, from the land to the historic part of Trogir city by one bridge, and further on to the Čiovo island by the second bridge. It would also be possible to reach the island with a boat, but the boat only takes passengers, no vehicles.

The most well known villages on the island are Slatine, Arbanija, Okrug Donji and Okrug Gornji. As Čiovo may be interpreted as an extension of Trogir, it is important to emphasize that the Okrug riviera, which is 4 kilometres away from Trogir would be the most popular destination of this part of the Middle Dalmatia.

Except for the old and small early christian churches that are on many Dalmatian islands, where on Čiovo we should point out the church of Our Lady of Prizidnica from the 16th century located in Slatine, the island is well known for numerous islets next to Čiovo, the bays beaches and abundance of vegetation. One of natural highlights of the island would be the wild field orchids growing on meadows.
