I am a history teacher and tour guide from Zadar. I was born in Zadar on 14. 8. 1988. I also lived on the island Korčula and in Split. I graduated in 2017 with the thesis "Migration of Dalmatia from 1860 to 1918". I got the certificate in tourist guide for Zadar county in July 2020. I also work in web design, graphic design and 3d modeling. I receive people very often with Couchsurfing and I like to travel. I am familiar with modern technologies and I am always open to share my knowledge about my city and my country. I am doing tour guide in Croatian and English language.

About the Tour

I will take a walking tour of Zadar from the city gate. I will tell a brief history of the city. After the introduction, I will describe the fortification system in Zadar in the 16th century. In more detail, I will describe the construction and meaning of the city gate and how the entrance to the city was built also, I will describe the Ponton Bastion and the Forte Bastion.

We continue to the Cinco wells Square where there is Captain Fort and the Jelena Madio public park opened in 1830 by Baron von Welden. Later in the walking tour, we will continue to the old entrance to the city. The next stop is the Church of San Simeón. I will explain all about the phases of the church and how it changed its title. I will also explain about the political situation that led to the making of the Chest of Saint Simeon.
Later, we will pass by the Rector's palace in Zadar. The next stop on the tour is the People's Square with its buildings. After that, we can go to the market where the remains of the church of Santa María are. The longest walking tour will be to the Church of Saint Grisogonus than to the Forum. In Forum I will introduce you to St. Donats Church and St. Mary's Church. At the last stop, the tour will go to the Cathedral of Saint Anastasia or the Church of Saint Francis.
