Interesting and very modern designed museum around the Jura. Rooms divided according to various topics such as religion, politics, geography, etc. with good but not too detailed information and, in some cases, interactive exhibits. Worth a visit. Friendly staff

The Jura Museum of Art and History is one of the 50 best museums in Switzerland that is well worth seeing. The processing of the historically very comprehensive history of the Jura and the modern way it is presented to the visitor is instructive and exciting at the same time. WORTH SEEING

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.
