Cickini

Cickini is the name of an early Christian church constructed in the 6th century AD. It is located in the village of Sveti Vid-Miholjice within the municipality of Malinska-Dubašnica on the island of Krk, Croatia. It is situated in a forest near an area called Sršić, a few hundred meters from the D102 road.[1][2]

HistoryEdit

Construction is believed to have started on the site in the 6th century AD at a location of a Roman village that dates to the 1st century. The bishop of Krk used the location as a temporary refuge. It is believed to have been abandoned after the 9th century. In addition to the church there is a 2,500 sq meter residential complex that has yet to be excavated.[3]

The Site TodayEdit

The remains of church was discovered in 2002. A small museum dedicated to the site is located in Sveti Vid. The museum contains artifacts that have been excavated from the site, including tablets
