Drniška Gradina fort is an ancient ruin and tourist attraction in Drniš in Croatia. Perched on cliffs at the southwestern edge of the town, it offers dramatic views over the surrounding area including Peter's Field and the Čikole river and gorge. Drniška Gradina is the only remaining part of the fortifications that protected Bogočin-city, Kamičak, Ključica and Nečven.
Archaeological remains at Drniška Gradina date back to the Bronze Age, and the current ruins date from Medieval times when the Nelipić aristocratic Croatian family built the fort here as well as other defences. Gradina Turnjina fortress was used by the Turks but became oboslete in the 19th century and destroyed by Venetians. Today it remains a significant landmark and tourist attraction in Drniš.
So, whoever should reach the Drniš to even briefly looked at his eventful history, let be prepare to climb here... At only ten paces from The Turnjina tower, which the oldest Drniš settlement Gradina mark's as early as the Turks. Even now, as this Dalmatian high point falls into deepest silence of the abandoned time, we'll fight here for our breath. Becouse, it's the place from were the whole our view drown into the bottom of the Čikola canyon, and there enjoy in beautiful panorama of Petrovo polje. It was before, it will be after us.
