Dragon's Cave  is a first-class monument to the monastic life of a Glagolitic priest from the fifteenth century. It is located near the small town of Murvica, and territorially belongs to the municipality of Nerežišća. It was used as a residence and temple for the Glagolitic monks of Poljica, who chose it to spend their religious life in it, reconciling two separate traditions at the same time - Christian and pagan. To this day, Slavic myths about werewolves, fairies, witches and seas, as well as about Orkomarin, a one-eyed giant who lives in a cave, have survived. It is this combination of different beliefs and superstitions that is shown in the relief after which the cave got its name. You can visit the Dragon's Cave only with a guide.
