There are many breathtaking architectural sacral monuments around Croatia, such as the St. Lawrence Cathedral in Trogir or St. Donat Church in Zadar.
It makes really difficult to create Top 10 list but definitely one among them is stunning Cathedral of Saint Domnius in Split, known locally as Sveti Duje.
It is a complex of a church, formed from an Imperial Roman mausoleum, with a bell tower. Strictly the church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and the bell tower to Saint Domnius. Together they form the Cathedral of St. Domnius.

The Cathedral of Saint Domnius, consecrated at the turn of the 7th century AD, is regarded as the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world that remains in use in its original structure, without near-complete renovation at a later date (though the bell tower dates from the 12th century).
