About Zadar

The history of Zadar goes 3,000 years back when it was first mentioned as a settlement in written documents and historical artefacts. It became a fully urbanized centre during ancient Roman times and remained as such continuously for another two millennia.

Zadar is both, an atmospheric time machine and an open-air museum. Here on display, you will find some of the most beautiful monuments of architecture and cultural heritage of the eastern Adriatic coast. Its city walls are the ancient guardians of this still vibrant historic museum in the open, end they were rightly added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
