It is a small town with rich culture and history, it has approximately 2,000 inhabitants of which Croats make an overwhelming majority. A village in this municipality called Kašić Banjevački was once home to a famous Partisan monument but was tragically destroyed during the 19990’s Croatian war for independence, it was later replaced by a chapel to commemorate the victims of both the Second World War and the war for independence. This city like many other Croatian coastal cities have impeccably maintained their medieval and gothic architecture.
