Church of Saint Stephen and “Cergan”

Location: DOBRINJ, N 45 07.866, E 14 36.199

Modern times still do not have an answer to the question: how it happened that the wooden porch in front of the Dobrinj Church of Saint Stephen (Crkva Svetog Stjepana) was built there in that particular shape and bearing that unusual name, cergan. A word possibly from the Turkish or some other language remains an enigma associated to this, yet another in the series of Dobrinj attractions. The three-nave (originally one-nave) Dobrinj Parish Church mentioned already in 1100 is characterised by a combination of the Baroque and Late Gothic styles. Its altar painting called the Coronation of Mary (Krunjenje Majke Božje) was proclaimed a cultural monument.
