pastoral center and pilgrimage home
at Novigrad na Dobri

Vincentinum is placed in the peace of a beautiful nature in continental Croatia, in the valley of the river Dobra, in the place Novigrad na Dobri. The place is located in an excellent traffic location and has its own entrance and exit of the A1 highway - Novigrad interchange, which is also the fourth largest interchange in the Republic of Croatia, and is of exceptional importance for the traffic linking between the Croatia and the European Union on the one hand and the Croatian coast and Bosnia and Herzegovina on the other. The pastoral center and pilgrimage home are just a 40-minutes drive from Zagreb, about 1 hour from Rijeka, 30 minutes from Slovenia, and only 3 minutes from the exit of the highway.

Vincentinum is reconstructed on the bases of a former rectory from 1772., and that is how the house for spiritual retreats and spiritual exercises for those who want to find a place of silence, peace and meditation in order to meet with God and with ourselves was created. Thanks to its location Vincentinum is also an ideal place for vacation on your journey especially for organized groups of pilgrims on their way to one of the most famous Marian shrines in Bosnia and Herzegovina - Medjugorje or one of the shrines in Croatia - Trsat, Marija Bistrica, Udbina, Krasno or a tourist destination such as Plitvice Lakes National Park. In our pastoral center and pilgrimage home you can be spiritually enriched through retreats, renewals or other religious programs under the guidance of your own leaders or leaders in the organization of Vincentinum.

Because of the nature by which it's surrounded Vincentinum provides the opportunity for the relaxation of the body and for enjoying the extraordinary natural beauties of the area by walking, sightseeing or any of the recreational activities. Safe, protected environment and clean and healthy nature make Vincentinum an ideal place for family gatherings on weekends in the nature.

In the Vincentinum complex there is a chapel of St. Vincent de Paul, which is an ideal place for personal prayer, meditation or whole night adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, there is also the church of the assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which provides the opportunity for joint liturgical celebrations, prayer and encounters with the Lord, halls for meetings, lectures, presentations or education (equipped with multimedia equipment), rooms with toilet facilities with a possibility of accommodation for 53 persons, the restaurant Stari Farof with dining room, cafeteria and a summer terrace.
