The island of Ciovo is connected to the mainland by two bridges. The old bridge introduces it to the historic center of ancient Trogir, and the new bridge, completed in 2018 with great assistance from the EU funds, has largely unburdened the old bridge and the city center of Trogir and further connected the island to the mainland.
The island has always been on the conqueror’s path, as evidenced by the numerous clues that are today a top attraction in terms of cultural heritage. Most of them are from the Middle Ages, and among the most valuable buildings from that time is the Holy Cross Monastery near Arbanija, which adorns a beautiful court and a valuable collection of medieval art.
The island of Ciovo was once an oasis of spiritual peace, as evidenced by the beautiful sacral buildings. Our Lady of Prizidnica Church is a well-known sanctuary where hermit priests found refuge in the Middle Ages. It is only 2 kilometers away from Slatin, where the valuable Romanesque church of St. Peter is located. In the village of Zedno is the church of St. Moor, from the 4th century, another quiet corner, arranged by hermits.
More recently, the island has become an oasis for vacationing in numerous apartments.
