The Church of St.Andrew's remains the third largest church after the Cathedrals of Zagreb and Dakovo. Its origins date back to the 12th century; needless to say this is a monument not to be missed. The church is the parish church of Bakar. Its current structure was a remodelling project which occured during the 18th and 19th century an adaptation of the original church from 1853. Historical records tell us that the original church was built in 1130 and was dedicated to the Holy Trinity. This scaral building endured numerous damage in two fierce earthquakes one in the 14th century and on in the 18th century. The interior of the church has 11 altars and endless pieces of sacral art. Needless to say the Church of St.Andrew's is not only a beautiful spirtual place to visit it is also a significant historical masterpiece. Located in the old city centre of Bakar the church's belltower peers over the town and adds to the esthetic appeal of this quaint destination.
