St. Mark's Church


The parish church of St. Mark was built in 1851, in a secluded place surrounded by forest vegetation. It contains the famous Valun tablet - a Glagolitic bilingual monument from the 11th century. It is a cultural monument because a Glagolitic tablet was found during the construction, which tells us that there was a church there before, the church is currently a grave church for the local cemetery. The village in which it is located is a famous fishing village whose restaurants can enjoy gastronomic fish specialties.

This church was built in the 19th century. I was blown away by the historical Valun tablet. The surrounding of this church was serene because of the dense forest. I had a memorable moment touring this place
This church is surrounded by dense forests. Its ancient design was captivating and its history was amazing. I had a chance to see the Valun tablet, it made my visit here satisfying
Peaceful and quiet church with serene environment that we visited. I loved that place when we visited and it is a nice place for the christians to have prayers and good place to find a spiritual clarity. Totally awesome.
Stunning views of the Church from the outside. I loved the architectural design of the building of the church and the exterior look is captivative. The statues at the outside are great and give a historical story.
We visited the cemetery at St. Mark's Church and the experience was awesome. I loved to tour and had the opportunity to know about the history of the church and the people that are the place.
