Bol - Zmajeva špilja (Dragon's Cave)

Published in Culture and sights

A miniature church inside the cave, situated above the small village Murvice near in the foot of Vidova gora rocks, was residence and temple of Glagolitic priests of 15th century. It is reachable only by a walking path. Inside the cave there are numerous reliefs of pagan mythology and Christianity characters carved out in live stone between which is to emphasize a relief of a dragon after which this cave was named. Origins of a rare specimen of Croatian Glagolitic first print of missal from 1483, today preserved in the Dominican Museum in Bol are from this area.
