The oldest croatian crown town

Have to keep my promice and finaly finish this page which is dedicated to my dear friend Anne (Vter Willy Wonka), actually to her mother who was born in Nin and now lives in far place called Australia. Dunno what she is doing down there, if I was born here wouldn't left it for all money this world can offer, lol.
Nin is actually the oldest croatian crown town and it makes the locals to be very proud because of that. It is very old town with rich history, which goes back to pre-Roman times. Finaly, it is small but very beautiful place and shame on you if missing to visit it when in Croatia.

Crkva Sv. Nikole

The 12th century church of St. Nicholas, built in pre-Romanesque style, is situated on a small hill, few kilometres far from the town of Nin, an is a must see.

Crkva Sv. Kri┼ża

St. Cross Church, built in the 9th century, is colloquialy called the smallest Chatedral in the world. You can't miss it when getting into the town.
