Great staff who are more than happy to talk to you about the place history. A LOT of toys, not only for kids but gives nostalgic feeling for adults too. Definitely recommend!

This is more of a huge (truly huge) private collection rather than a museum. There’s basically no information what so ever about the different objects. Also - a lot of the objects are really dusty and are clearly not being preserved. That said it’s a huge and wonderful collection of toys! Every thing from the 40s up until now. Mostly focusing on Barbie, Electric trains and Lego. Well worth the time and money.

Such a great place, fantastic for all ages! From old toys to the latest Lego, room after room, neverending selection of toys! Highly recommended!

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.
