King Nikolas’s Castle was built in 1885 on the seashore by King Nikola. It was dedicated to his daughter Princess Zorka and his son-in-law, Prince Petar Karađorđević. It consists of a large castle, a small castle, a chapel, a watchtower and a winter garden. In 1910, a spacious ballroom was built. There is a park within the castle, with a large number of Mediterranean vegetation (among other things, cork wood). Built right next to the seashore, today it is home to the Homeland Museum, which houses the most important archaeological finds from this area. The museum has preserved the original appearance of some rooms, and is surrounded by a beautiful botanical garden in which trees from all over the world were planted even in the time of King Nikola.
Entrance fee to King Nikola’s Castle is charged EUR 1 and EUR 0.50 for children up to 10 years.
The working hours of King Nikola’s Castle are from 9 am to 3 pm, and from 5 pm to 11 pm during the season, and from 9 am to 3 pm out of season.
