Varaždin Fortress

Varaždin Fortress "Stari Grad"

The fortress in Croatian Varaždin impresses with its location in a green belt. Like a fairytale castle, the white walls rise above a former moat. Where water built a barrier in earlier times, strollers enjoy their walks. [German]


Sveti Nikola in Nin

Church of Sveti Nikola in Nin, Croatia

While driving to Nin, you may see a slightly inclined tower on a hill. It belongs to Sveti Nikola (St Nicholas Church), an example of early-Romanesque architecture in Dalmatia. The fortress-like part is a watch tower added during unsafe centuries. [German]
