The first street at the foot of Minčeta Fort. With its magnificent crown, this tower has dominated the city for centuries and continues to dominate today. It was the symbol of its freedom and a spiteful challenge to all the impertinent, and today is one of the most beautiful symbols of the city. With its lovely architecture, it is one of the most beautiful fortifications in the world. It was built by skilled masters: the original was smaller and square, built by Nicifor Ranjina in 1319. It was adapted and received its current monumental circular form from the famed Renaissance architect Michelozzo Michelozzi from Florence and one of the greatest Croatian Renaissance masters Juraj Dalmatinac, by whose project the tower was completed in 1464. The top of this impressive structure provides a stunning view of the town and all its surroundings.
