You visit the monastery for 25min, guide only tells you what you can do. You can view everything in like 15min. For me - nothing special.

Beautiful small island with a monastery and museum, surrounded with amazing garden.Monastery which is located on the Krka river, where the Franciscan order and beauty of glorious nature made the perfect combination of mysticism, spirituality, God's presence and the beauty of nature in one place.
