Archaeological sites have shown that Trogir is one of the oldest towns on Mediterranean, whose history goes back to 2000 B.C. In the 3rd century B.C. Greek settlement Tragurion was founded by Dorians from Syracuse. The same arrangement of streets is present in Trogir even today, and the main square with the cathedral was once agora. After the war between Cesar and Pompeii in 49 B.C. Trogir lost the battle as the ally of Pompeii, and became municipium within Roman Empire. Since the 9th century Trogir had Croatian rulers, and after the ruin of independent Croatian country, Hungarian-Croatian king Koloman in 1107 gave Trogir a status of independent town. In 1123 Saracens almost destroyed it, and in 1171 Venetians robbed it, but the town soon after had its economic boom in the 12th and the 13th century. In 1409 New Croatian-Hungarian King Ladislav Napuljski sold Dalmatia to Venetian Republic. Trogir finally gave up and was defeated in 1420 and remained under their rule until 1797. After the fall of Venetian Republic, Trogir was for a short time under the rule of Austria (until 1806), then France (until 1814), then again Austria till 1918. After the First World War, the town became a part of the Kingdom of SHS (Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes), and in the Second World War it was defeated by the army of Mussolini. At the end of the war it became the part of SFRY (SFRJ). After Croatian was declared independent in 1991, it again becomes a part of independent Croatian country.
