Situated in the heart of the old town of Makarska, this church looks a bit plain from the outside, but walk in through the door and it is a different story. Even more so when there is a christening taking place.

The church is OK, but I would not call it a historic monument of any real significance. Some icons are nice, the architecture is average for the period. Worth a brief visit. I like churches generally speaking; this one was your run-of-the-mill place of worship, nothing to gape at.

Makarska is difficult to love. It is full of drunken 18-25 year-olds; terrible bars with cheap cocktails; hoards of spaghetti-and-chips brigade families and tacky market stalls. As a result, any pleasant area was seized upon for photos and a calm sit down. St Mark's Church was, sadly, closed to visitors on the day we were in Makarska. However, the square... More

I felt a welcoming glow and at peace on entering the building which is in a square surrounded by bars and the local market.
