Spiritual activities

If you want to spend time in spiritual atmosphere, peace, prayer and meditation, our facilities, equipment and staff are at your disposal for organizing your own programs. The environment of the pastoral center and pilgrimage home Vincentinum is suitable for organizing spiritual retreats, spiritual exercises, prayer meetings, engagement trainings and other spiritual programs, and a chapel, church and outer space of the complex are an exquisite complement to such programs because they allow you moments of peace, meditation, relaxation and tranquility needed for meditation to meet with God, but also with ourselves. Programs can be held under the guidance of your own spiritual leaders, and if necessary, Vincentinum can provide spiritual guidance by arrangement.

We are just 3 minutes drive from the highway, yet we are in the heart of nature and peace. We offer everything in one place - rest, food, safe parking and natural beauty.

Family weekend vacation

Vincentinum is an ideal place for family gatherings on weekends in the nature. It is especially suitable for a carefree stay for families with children because there is a grassy playground and a spacious meadow within the complex where children can enjoy themselves both in summer and winter. During your stay you can refresh yourself at our restaurant and we also offer you the possibility to prepare the barbecue in nature for your family.

Cultural and historical landmarks

For lovers of cultural and historical attractions we suggest to visit the landmarks of our region. The parish church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary with gothic sanctuary and baroque paintings is a must see – it was proclaimed a zero category monument of culture, we also recommend you to visit the old Frankopan city from the 15th century with a lookout and the bridge on the river Dobra underneath it, one of the oldest river bridges in Croatia, built in the 18th century, at the same time as the historical road Carolina, the first modern road which connected the interior Croatia with the Croatian coast through Novigrad. The history of the parish extends far into the year 1018 and thanks to that, the Parish has gathered the whole history in the parish monography which you can buy from us.

Organizing arrangements for those who want more

Vincentinum is an ideal place if you want to relax from everyday stress through walks in the nature with the birds singing and the sound of waterfalls on the river Dobra, swimming, boating, fishing, hunting, winter joys and many other activities in the nature with good food and good wine. If you decide that you want to get to know our surroundings better, Vincentinum can come up with arrangements for you that will help you discover Novigrad and its surroundings in a completely new way - touring the Frankopan forts, exploring Karlovac - the city on four rivers, a tour to the Museum of the Patriotic War in Turanj and a drive in a military off-road vehicle on the former frontline, a visit to Ivana's fairytales home in Ogulin, a trip to Rastoke – a watermill village, the festival of military classic cars – these are just some of the ideas that may interest you.

We have bikes prepared for our guest which are free to use.
