    Introduction to Zadar - Walking Tour

Introduction to Zadar - Walking Tour

  • City: Zadar
  • Duration: This tour is approximately 2 hours in length

Overview

The ancient coastal city of Zadar boasts a fascinating pre-Roman and Roman era history, lovely marbled streets and a charming cafe scene that lures locals and travelers alike to sit and people-watch for hours over cups of steaming, dark coffee and the region's original maraschino liqueur. Discover the historically rich and architecturally beautiful city of Zadar - the capital of the entire region for over 1300 years - in a walking tour with our expert local guide, learning about the way of life in Zadar and how it has changed over centuries.

Begin your exploration by marveling at the tremendous 16th century fortifications that still guard parts of the city as you walk through one of Zadar's most famous landmarks, the monumental land gate leading to the small harbor of Fose. Built by the Venetians in 1543 and decorated with a marvelously sculpted statue of a lion, it is considered to be one of the finest examples of the Renaissance in Dalmatia.

Then make your way to Zadar's ancient Roman Forum, admiring the main square, the remarkable church of St. Donatus and the Cathedral of St. Anastasia along the way. As your guide leads you through the narrow streets to the heart of the Old Town, still marked by the Roman city grid, learn about Zadar's long and tumultuous past: its devastation in World War II and the Croatian Homeland War, and its bright new present as the jewel of Croatian tourism.

Your walk includes the hustle and bustle of Zadar's marvelous fish market, as well as a visit to the waterfront to listen to the sea play Zadar's internationally famous Sea Organ. You can also take amazing photos at the Greetings to the Sun, a light installation made of three hundred multi-layered glass plates. Under the glass conduction plates there are photo-voltage solar modules through which a symbolic communication with nature is made; the aim is to communicate with light, just like the Sea Organ does with sound.

At the end of the tour you will be dropped off at your hotel.
