The monument Domagoj’s archers

(dim. about 5 x 3 m) made by

sculptor Stjepan Skoro lies to the

west of the church of Our Lady of

the Snows. It depicts the Croatian

Prince Domagoj (864 to 876 AD),

three archers and one spearman

in a traditional boat. These boats

are used in the Neretva region,

and they originated in the Middle

Ages. The boat (“lađa”) is a symbol

of the Croatian dominance

over the eastern Adriatic coast,

initiated by prince Domagoj.
