The renaissance castle Walpersdorf was built in 1571 by Hans Ulrich von Ludmanstorf, which was then expanded by Helmhard VIII Freiherr von Jörger and completed by his son Helmhard the Younger in 1619. During the Thirty Years' War the castle went to Empress Eleonora Gonzaga. After her death, Georg Ludwig von Sinzendorf bought the castle, who built a silk mill there. Marie Countess Falkenhayn finally bequeathed Walpersdorf Castle to the Order of the Missionary Sisters of St. Petrus Claver. The castle was badly damaged in World War II and repaired after the war. Until 2014 it was owned by the Missionary Order. The castle has housed the Lederleitner interior store since 2014. Admission is free, a tour through the beautifully designed exhibition rooms is a must for all friends of upscale home decor! The castle chapel is very popular for dream weddings, the "Castle Kitchen Walpersdorf Blauenstein" located in the castle, an insider tip for gourmets!

Yes, pretty nice to look at anyway - and if you come here to eat, then it's (maybe) worth it. We made the detour because we wanted to visit "the sight". However, it doesn't pay off ...

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.
