“one of the best churches I've ever seen - and I live in Europe”
Reviewed 26 June 2011

Wow is all I can say. It costs 10 kuna to enter (that's only 2 dollars, 1 1/2 euro), and a lot of cheap people passed on it. Shameful really. The dark crucifix on the left side of the church almost made this non-believer convert. The baptizing room was amazing, as the other reviewer said. No photos allowed in this place though.

“Don't skip the baptistery.”
Reviewed 5 July 2010

In my opinion the best part of the whole church was the baptistery. It cost a few kuna to enter, and I saw numerous visitors pass it by. Don't. The dome ceiling of the small room is covered with elaborate sculpture that makes exceptional use of natural light filtering in through tiny windows hidden by an ornate trellis.
