The history of Nin goes back to the 9th century BC and the ruins of the largest Roman temple of the eastern Adriatic region testify to the particular importance of Nin in ancient times. Also in the national history of Croatia, Nin has a very special place: from the 7th century on, kings were crowned here and the town was temporarily the Croatian bishop's seat. This rich cultural heritage can be explored in the Gold and Silver Church Treasury of Nin. In addition to a valuable collection of church art, the museum also houses a Judas silver coin and the ring of Pope Pius II from the 15th century.
