Feel the spirit of old
Franjevački Samostan & Muzej (Franciscan Monastery & Museum)5
Why locals love it
Once you enter the cloister of the Franciscan monastery you can really feel the peace of this place and enjoy a walk around, also visiting a small museum with century old, still preserved items. The pharmacy dates back to 1317 and is the third oldest still functioning pharmacy in the world.
Why you should visit it
The collection of liturgical and art objects is exhibited in a Renaissance hall, containing the inventory of the old Franciscan pharmacy, paintings by old masters, valuable specimens of gold-work and rare books.
In the pharmacy that is still open, one can test and buy lotions still made after the recipes from the Franciscans in the 14th century.
