There is probably an attitude in Rakvere that "snow is our friend, we don't touch him". There are many sidewalks in the city center that have never been snowed all winter and have not seen any sand or granite screens. There is now an almost half-meter uneven layer of ice. There are ice rinks around the railway station, moving between the station and the city center is dangerous even for a healthy and athletic man. How do older people or parents with children move around the city? Shameful negligence! If the argument is that these sidewalks belong to private owners, why are they not fined? And this is not the first such winter.

What a calm and peaceful place to sit and see the water fountains making extraordinary scenes of rainbows in the summers. Right in the middle surrounded by many cafes and grocery stores to buy snacks. ?

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.
