Early Croatian Republic

The construction of the Knin fortress started in the 9th century, in the period of forming the Early Croatian Republic. Some Croatian kings had their occasional capital city in Knin, while the king Dmitar Zvonimir had the permanent one here. The fortress consists of five parts connected in-between: Donji Grad (Lower Town), Srednji Grad (Middle Town), Gornji Grad (Upper Town) or Kaštel Knin, Kaštel lab or Bandijera, and Južni Grad (South Town) or station Belveder. The Knin fortress is one of the greatest Croatian fortification monuments and it is the second largest military fortification in the whole Europe, extremely indented and preserved in all its parts...
It is a living monument of culture that includes a museum, exhibition galleries and a restaurant, so it surely represents the main brand in the field of the cultural tourism in the area of the Town of Knin. The Town Museum of Knin takes care of the Fortress that displays also the archaeological and ethnographic exhibitions. The Knin fortress is open in the period from March 16th to October 31st, every day from 7 am to 7 pm. The working hours out of season are from 7 am to 3 pm. Entrance ticket costs 20,00 kn per person (for organized visits the entrance ticket costs 10,00 kn per person). The Krčić River has been protected since 1964. Together with the Krka River, it forms a unique hydrographic system with an abundance of hydrographic and morphological karst formations. Over its length of about 10 km from its spring to Topoljski slap waterfall (where it drains into the Krka River), the Krčić River stands out with its deep and picturesque canyon. The end of the canyon is marked by a lovely flexure of geological layers from the Triassic and Jurassic eras, and interesting denuded relief forms. Within the canyon are travertine cascades, the loveliest of which are Topoljski buk, and under its base is where the Krka River springs.Along the Krčić River is a 15 km bicycle trail leading from the spring of the Krka River. This trail was built while Napoleon ruled in this area, and was reconstructed under the rule of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy.The trail runs through the pleasant canyon landscape, along the course of this beautiful karst river that dries up during the summer months, creating a fantastic travertine canyoning trail. The shrine of Our Lady of Biskupija, or St. Mary of Croatia, is situated in the village of Biskupija, 5 km southeast of Knin, the former church and cultural centre of the Croatian state in the Middle Ages. Archaeologists have discovered the foundations of five churches in that village, dating from the period of Croatian rulers from the 9th to the 11th century. St Mary's church was the residence of the Bishop of Knin, who was Bishop of Croatia from 1040 to 1522. The earliest known figure of Our Lady in Croatian art was discovered by archaeologists in that same church on a part of the stone partition wall, which separated the shrine from the church nave. It is still venerated as Our Lady of the Great Croatian Vow. Today, on the foundations of the old Croatian church of the same name there stands a memorial church, decorated between 1937 and 1938 according to the designs of Croatia’s most famous sculptor, Ivan Meštrović. The church is a single-nave building (16 x 8.4 m) with a square niche for the altar, and a 12.5 metre-tall steeple before it.

The fortress of Trošenj

The fortress of Trošenj, situated on the right bank of the river Krka, belonged to the Croatian noblemen Šubić Bribirski. It was constructed for controlling the bridge over the river Krka towards the Town of Nečven, which was strategically very important.The medieval fortress of Trošenj was raised opposite the fortress of Nečven, on the right bank of the Krka River

It was once under the possession of the great Croatian Šubić family, who ruled over the entire right bank of the Krka River. It was likely erected to guard and control the strategically important bridge over the river.
The Turkish army took over Trošenj in 1522, where they housed their military units, and built a rounded tower. The invasion of the Venetian army to these regions in 1686 ousted the Turks, and the majority of the fortress was destroyed.

The paths of Roman Empire

Near the ancient Asseria is known Winery Bacic. At over 20 hectares of vineyards, quality soil and beneficial Dalmatian sun bear wines of superior quality. Wines wineries Bacic regularly win awards at the most prestigious wine events including its silver medal for flavored wine "Asseria" at Decanter in London, certainly the most prestigious global event...

At strategic high ground over important roads where the gentle fields of Ravni kotari turn into the barren land of Bukovica stands Asseria, as old as time itself. A few kilometres from Benkovac, the road which was used even 2,000 ago to go from the Roman Jader (Zadar) to reach Salona (Solin) stands the old fortification and Liburnian town of Asseria, rebuilt by Roman enterprise. The magnificent Trajan Gate, Forum, streets and ramparts are covered in oblivion, but have begun to be uncovered in recent years. The Forum has been covered by an Early Christian church and cemetery. Three kilometres of aqueduct have been abandoned, and the strong three-metre thick ramparts seem to have become one with the rockery from which they are now being released. Why did the inhabitants of this powerful town abandon it? What is the link between these people and the people of the surroundings? It was the power to use and have command of the stones and rocks for here is the biggest number of carved Liburnian tombstones – cippi- and the powerful town ramparts. These people here who have been living with and for the stone are today skilful stonemasons.

In the settlement of Bribir, 15 km far from the town of Skradin, there is an attractive site named Bribirska glavica, the centre of the Croatian state in the 13th century and cultural monument of the highest category. The archaeological site Bribirska glavica (the antique Varvaria and the Early Croatian Bribir) encloses the surface of about 72.000 m2 and it is situated 300 m above sea level. This site is known as the "Croatian Troy" among the archaeologists. Fra Lujo Marun, the father of the Croatian archaeology, likewise named it in 1908. It is one of the most important archaeological sites in Croatia, where it is possible to follow the sequence of living from the prehistory, Liburnian age, Early and Late Antiquity, Early Croatian to Early and Late Middle Ages. St. Nicola Tavelić, the first Croatian saint, joined in 1375 to the Franciscan order in the St. Mary's monastery in Bribirska Glavica. Also, the governor Pavao I. Šubić Bribirski – "the governor of Croatia and the lord of Bosnia" was buried in the cathedral of St. Mary in Bribirska Glavica.

The remains of Burnum, an ancient Roman military camp, are located in the settlement of Ivoševci, about 19 km far from the Town of Knin in the direction of Kistanje. This archaeological site consists of two units. Following the road from Knin to Zadar on the left hand side two arches are situated. These are probably constituent parts of the main entrance (porticus principia) to the Roman military camp of Burnum, colloquially referred to as Šuplja crkva (Hollow church). The Principia was the command building, administrative and religious centre of the Roman military camp. It was located on the crossroads of the two most important streets in the camp: via principalis and via praetoria. The canyon of the river Krka starts to spread out in the background of the arches. The other locality represents an amphitheatre dating from the 1st century, i.e. from the period of emperor Vespasian.
