Architecture of Croatia In the 15th century, Croatia was divided into three states – the northern and central part of Croatia and Slavonia were in union with the Kingdom of Hungary, while Dalmatia, with the exception of independent Dubrovnik, was under the rule of the Venetian Republic. The Cathedral of St.James (Cathedral of St. James, Šibenik) in Šibenik, was begun in 1441 in the Gothic style by Giorgio da Sebenico ''(Juraj Dalmatinac)''. Its unusual

construction does not use mortar, the stone blocks, pilasters and ribs being bonded with joints and slots in the way that was usual in wooden constructions. In 1477 the work was unfinished, and continued under Nikola Firentinac who respected the mode of construction and the plan of the former architect, but continued the work which includes the upper windows, the vaults and the dome, in the Renaissance style. The combination of a high barrel vault with lower half-barrel vaults over the aisles the gives the façade its distinctive trefoil shape, the first of this type in the region. Commons:Dubrovnik

''The early medieval Balkans'', p. 274 In 998, Samuel launched a major campaign against Jovan Vladimir to prevent a Byzantine-Serbian alliance. When his troops reached Duklja, Vladimir withdrew to the mountains, Samuel left part of the army at the foot of the mountains and led the remaining soldiers to besiege the coastal fortress of Ulcinj. In an effort to prevent bloodshed, he asked Jovan Vladimir to surrender, but Jovan refused, some Serb nobles offered their services to the Bulgarians and, when it became clear that further resistance was fruitless, the Serbs surrendered. Jovan Vladimir was exiled to Samuel's palaces in Prespa. Šišić, p. 331. The Bulgarian troops proceeded to pass through Dalmatia, taking control of Kotor and journeying to Dubrovnik. Although they failed to take Dubrovnik, they devastated the surrounding villages. The Bulgarian army then attacked Croatia in support of the rebel princes Krešimir III (Krešimir III of Croatia) and Gojslav (Gojslav of Croatia) and advanced northwest as far as Split (Split (city)), Trogir and Zadar, then northeast through Bosnia (Bosnia (region)) and Raška (Raška (region)) and returned to Bulgaria. The Croato-Bulgarian War (Croato-Bulgarian Wars) allowed Samuel to install vassal monarchs in Croatia. A ''"travunian Serb"'', Stefan Voislav, raised a rebellion in the 1030s. Prince of Zachlumia Ljutovid exerted his influence over Travunia, even though Stefan Voislav claimed it. After inflicting a sound defeat to the Byzantines at Bar (Bar, Montenegro), VOislav dispatched 50 captured Greeks to demoralize Liudevit's army that was awaiting at Klobuk. Voislav's son Goislav led the Doclean forces and easily defeated Liutovid's forces, killing Liutovid himself with the help of two bodyguards. Travunia was fully incorporated into Doclea. When Gojslav became the ruler, he elected Trebinje as the new Serbian capital. He was assassinated by Travunian Prince Ljutovid who raised a rebellion in 1047-1050 and Mihailo Voislav had to depose Domanec, Liutovid's son, and move the capital from Travunia, placing his brother Saganek as Prince of Travunia. Saganek was overthrown in 1055, and it took Radoslav, Mihailo's faithful brother to finally kill Domanec and seize control over Travunia. In 1077 a Slavic Kingdom of Doclea and Dalmatia was proclaimed.It commanded the road from Ragusa (Dubrovnik) to Constantinople, traversed, in 1096, by Raymond of Toulouse (Raymond IV, Count of Toulouse) and his crusaders (First Crusade). With the coming of the 12th century, Travunia was fully incorporated into the unified Serbian state (History of Serbia). Later, the House of Nemanjic took over since 1166 68. In 1217, the Serbian Kingdom was proclaimed. The park is accessible throughout most of the year but with some restrictions during part of the winter. It is accessible by road from Sarajevo– Commons:Dubrovnik
