neglected, sightseeing only outside. beautiful castle, but nobody does anything about it and it is only an attraction that attracts tourists who spend the night in the surrounding hotel habitat.

Castle is being repaired, still nice to look at and make pictures. Road to get to is really rough.

Closed, maybe for repairs??? Unknown, and nothing in English to explain anything! The nearby place was bustling - some sort of holiday/outdoor activities place and accommodation.

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.
