Were sold a ticket but I had the distinct impression it was closed and we were an opportunistic 60kuna. Corridors once inside were unlit and filled with (literally) rubbish. Mattresses, old TVs (did get the chance to show my 6yr old a CRT that was...More

We visited this place as we'd seen that it was well recommended via tripadvisor. We were not disappointed at all. For a cheap entry fee (relative to the prices of other attractions in the area) there is a lot to see. The climb up the...More

Once you have walked the walls and toured the city, you should definitely plan on visiting the Gornji Ugao Tower. It was fascinating and so well presented. We used the tablet version of the tour which was great - very informative but not overly verbose....More

Hi! Like is written in previous answers, you don't need to book tour/sight before. If someone come in the middle of the tour I join him to the current tour and later on is possible to see that "missed" part. Greetings from... More
