Tour description

Zadar is a city where ancient architecture and modern art 
Join me on a walk through beautiful Zadar and get to know its history over 3000 years old!

We start the tour at  5 Well Square, which the city resisted 
with water until recent history.

Then I will take you to the first public park in Croatia, 
Jelena Madijevka Park, from where you will have a view 
of the monumental Land Gate, a unique specimen on the east 
coast of the Adriatic that is recognized by UNESCO and placed 
under its protection along the City Walls of the 16th and 
17th centuries.

Nearby is the church of St. Simon, one of the patrons of 
Zadar, and his body is kept in a gilded chest of 280 kg of 
silver and gold.

We will walk through the main city artery - Kalelarga, which
 will take us to the City Square where the people of Zadar 
have been meeting since the 12th century.

After that we'll stop at the ancient Forum and return more than
 2000 years to the oldest part of the city - to the so called
"open-air museum".

At this place there is a large pre-Romanesque monument from 
the 9th century - the church of St. Donat, which is made 
entirely of the remains of ancient stone from a Roman temple.

Near the Forum is the Zadar Cathedral, the largest on the 
Eastern Adriatic coast from the 12th century, dedicated to 
St. Anastasia.

We will end the tour with the latest and unique installations 
of Zadar - Sea Organ and Greeting to the Sun.

Anita is very knowledgeable and we enjoyed learning about Zadar with her. She knows a lot about the city as she grew up here and she focused on showing us sites that we wouldn’t have been able to find on our own. Would recommend as she really helped bring the city’s history to life.
