Mozaics



What was life like once upon a time? What was the occupation of the inhabitants of Nin? In the Nin area of Banovac the remains of a large Roman house, with an area of 17x30 metres were found. Together with these remains new insights into the urban life of the then Aenona ''emerged''. This is supported by the discovery of an area of a rare floor mozaic featuring animal, geometrical and plant decorations which have been dated to the 2nd century by conservationists and archaeologists.

Church of st. Nicholas

Did you know that a widely known symbol of Nin is the Romanesque church of St. Nicholas from 11th/12th century, built on a hummock and also used as the coronation church? National folk legend has it that in Nin seven kings were crowned, and during the coronation, accompanied by a magnificent escort, the crowned ruler would ride to the Church of St. Nicholas where he was presented to the people. From that hummock, as a sign of his royal power, he would strike a sword to all four cardinal points.
