Also Nin is the oldest Croatian royal settlement.

An amazing type of city-church complex, it is one of a kind in the whole of the Mediterranean region. Small, isolated “places of worship” are proof of the oldest Croatian culture going back from the 9th to the 12th century.

8 Holy Roman Emperor's (Imperator Romanum) are buried in its' crypt, largest Romanesque crypt in the
world. They are Kaiser's (founder) Conrad II, Henry III, Henry IV, and Henry V. Also interred in the
massive crypt are (uncrowned) Kaiser's Philip of Swabia, Adolf of Nassau, Rudolph I of Habsburg, and
Albert I.

When the cathedral was started by Conrad II in 1030, it was intended to be larger than old St. Peter's
in Rome, and to rival the power of the Papacy.

4 towers and 2 domes rise above the Rhine from the south...

St. Anastasia cathedral, Zadar Croatia

Today's cathedral was built in the Romanesque style. It is the largest church in all of Dalmatia. The church's origins date back to a Christian basilica built in the 4th and 5th century, while much of today's building was constructed in the 12th and 13th centuries. The site has been submitted to UNESCO's Tentative List of World Heritage Sites!

Church and Monastery of St. Mary, Zadar Croatia

St Mary's Church, which retains a fine Romanesque campanile from 1105, belongs to a Benedictine Convent founded in 1066 by a noblewoman of Zadar named Cika. The convent buildings contain the remarkable Permanent Ecclesiastical Art Exhibition "The Gold and Silver of Zadar".The church was rebuilt during the 16th century in the Renaissance spirit, but retains its Dalmatian aspect with its rounded gables.

St. Stephen's Cathedral, island Hvar Croatia

Dominating a large square (the biggest in Dalmatia), this church comes from the 16th century, and it is the most remarkable building in town, noticeable immediately from the boat. Built in location of a 6th century chapel, it contains elements from the 14th to the 17th century.

Awesome work here. I'm especially impressed by the Dalmatian and Sicilian churches!
