The Saku brewery has a pub where you can have lunch during the day or buy takeaway food. The weekends offer live music with ever-changing music groups. In summer, an outdoor terrace for up to 25 people provides space for not only the best beers in the Saku Brewery, but also dishes. A table for making Lego bricks is available for children. So can the whole family Visit beer museum exhibition about the history and traditions of brewing. The exhibition can also be found in the premises of the brewery pub. The best thing is the good beer coming directly from the brewery. You should definitely plan a visit.

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.
