In the settlement of Bribir, 15 km far from the town of Skradin, there is an attractive site named Bribirska glavica, the centre of the Croatian state in the 13th century and cultural monument of the highest category. The archaeological site Bribirska glavica (the antique Varvaria and the Early Croatian Bribir) encloses the surface of about 72.000 m2 and it is situated 300 m above sea level. This site is known as the "Croatian Troy" among the archaeologists.

Fra Lujo Marun, the father of the Croatian archaeology, likewise named it in 1908. It is one of the most important archaeological sites in Croatia, where it is possible to follow the sequence of living from the prehistory, Liburnian age, Early and Late Antiquity, Early Croatian to Early and Late Middle Ages. St. Nicola Tavelić, the first Croatian saint, joined in 1375 to the Franciscan order in the St. Mary's monastery in Bribirska Glavica. Also, the governor Pavao I. Šubić Bribirski – "the governor of Croatia and the lord of Bosnia" was buried in the cathedral of St. Mary in Bribirska Glavica.
