This castle was worth the trip with all the old rooms and the historic sights. It is a bit expensive to get in but parking is just nearby. In 2022 you have to have a little parking slip in your car though. It is available in the stores and small businesses around the town. Quite an impressive place.

Cozy little town, with a simple playground for kids. Worth a visit if you are nearby or if it's a long your route. Some historical places to visit and some local shops.

Church of St Donatus

The Church of St Donatus name refers to Donatus of Zadar, who began construction on this church in the 9th century and ended it on the northeastern part of the Roman forum. It is the largest Pre-Romanesque building in Croatia.

The beginning of the building of the church was placed to the second half of the 8th century, and it is supposed to have been completed in the 9th century. The Zadar bishop and diplomat Donat (8th and 9th centuries) is credited with the building of the church. He led the representations of the Dalmatian cities to Constantinople and Charles the Great, which is why this church bears slight resemblance to Charlemagne"s court chapels, especially the one in Aachen, and also to the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna. It belongs to the Pre-Romanesque architectural period.

The circular church, formerly domed, is 27 m high and is characterised by simplicity and technical primitivism.
