There are two entereances to the old city which holds nine churches in its core. Sv. Marko cathedral, built in the 13th - 16th century period is one of the most significant monuments of culture, and the infulence of the Venetians can be seen all over the city in a form of lion sculptures decorating houses and garden walls.
