I could use a looser tap and maybe with a manual. As a disabled and elderly person, I do NOT have the strength for the faucet that is there and which is not for normal people ???. The gardeners had also removed more than DKK 400 worth of planted flowers instead of helping to water in the heat we have had this summer. You are mad ?????

Worth seeing church. One should not overlook the grave in the basement alcove. Very neat cemetery with a good view of the bridge to Møn.

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.
