Danmarks sødeste graver. Asger har virkelig været så sød og hjælpsom vedrørende grav og bisættelse. Så mange tak Asker for hjælpen. Hilsen May

Nice church and not least a pastor. There was room for both being solemn, as well as making fun and using humor when it fitted. Lovely fresh breath, for a session that may otherwise feel very long. We were sitting right in front of a pillar, so we had a hard time seeing baptism. On the contrary, they had put a smart TV screen so that we did not miss anything. Really good experience, on a nice day.

Historic City of Trogir

The historic city of Trogir is situated on a small island between the Croatian mainland and the island of Čiovo. Since 1997, it has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites for its Venetian architecture.

Trogir has 2300 years of continuous urban tradition. Its culture was created under the influence of the ancient Greeks, and then the Romans, and Venetians. Trogir has a high concentration of palaces, churches, and towers, as well as a fortress on a small island. The orthogonal street plan of this island settlement dates back to the Hellenistic period and it was embellished by successive rulers with many fine public and domestic buildings and fortifications. Its beautiful Romanesque churches are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period.

Trogir is the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex not only in the Adriatic, but in all of Central Europe. Trogir's medieval core, surrounded by walls, comprises a preserved castle and tower and a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Trogir's grandest building is the church of St. Lawrence, whose main west portal is a masterpiece by Radovan, and the most significant work of the Romanesque-Gothic style in Croatia.
