Gun turret could be viewed inside, but can be seen in about a minute. The gardens look neatly planted. Then in the tearoom less pleasant experience with a snarling managerial employee, I would not recommend the place because of this - we did not feel welcome

Regularly some cyclists or walkers who pass here. An oasis of peace. After viewing the old gun tower (you'll soon be done with that), we also walked through the historic herb garden. All beautifully in bloom in mid-June. We couldn't skip the terrace at the tearoom. Fortunately not only tea here .... The cup of coffee with apple pie tasted great. It also looks nice inside.

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.
