Opened in 2007, fully restored after a century of neglect, the garden of the St Lawrence monastery complex is the only one of its kind in Croatia and is surprisingly rare in Europe. The restoration was completed by award-winning landscape architect Dragutin Kiš and follows pathways designed in a cross, with areas filled with sweet-smelling medicinal plants and herbs. There’s a modern café right by the entrance. Tourist events (run by the Cromovens tourist agency on the main square of Trg Republike Hrvatske (No.4, 022 212 515) include the torch-lit ‘Medieval Evening in Dalmatia’, with a traditional three-course meal served by staff in medieval costume to the sounds of Dalmatian music.
