This master thesis suggests a model for presentation and interpretation of medieval monuments in the town of Solin. It is necessary due to inefficiency of the existing protection system, mostly poor physical state of archaeological sites, as well as the fact that undestanding and interest shown by local community are defeating – as shown by the results of public opinion reasearch conducted. Since every interpretation relies on information, first part of thesis deals with meaning held by Solin as one of several Croatian state centers in medieval period from the times of principality until the end of Croatian dynasty, that is until the Hungarian Arpads rose to power.Through critical analysis of historiography, investigation od sources available and data provided by archaeological research, major existence determinants for buildings connected to Croatian rulers and population of that time strive to be explained. Although some questions can not be given reliable answers, which is related to the limitations of archeology as a scienc, development of Solin as medieval settlement formed of several hamlets on the slopes of the nearby mountains, with its symbolic center on the banks of the lower river Jadro, can be foreseen.There sacral buildings have been situated, symbolic functions carriers, and somewhere nearby there was an estate of the ruler.The three most significant sites, namely Our Lady's Islet, Hollow Church and Hillfort, along with Gašpina watermill, form the concept of an archaeological trail, which uses existing infrastructure in its 1.6 km lenght. With the implementation of such route and the employment of different interpretative methods local and foreign visitors would be given the opportunity to experience a part of medieval Solin life and man of that time, and Solin sites would be granted the future they deserve.
