We walked through the gate as a part of a walking tour of Zadar. Zadar is known for the Roman and Venetian ruins of its Old Town. There are several Venetian gates in the city walls. Make sure you go see St. Mary’s Convent, St. Anastasia’s Cathedral and the Church of St. Donatus.

Start from here your trip of the old town. It is like moving in the 1500s but with people wearing clothes from 2017.

Visited the towns of Sibenik and Zadar. The ancient fortresses of of Sinenik in the old town is well preserved and so as the Baroque Orthodox Church of Zadar. The church of St. Donatus and Cathedral of St. Anastasia. We also saw the canyon-spanning bridge on our way to the old town. Not much to do here and very hot... More

Zadar is deservedly a UNESCO site and after going through the ate one enters another time and place captured in time. That said there are modern and upscale shops, restaurants and places to snack. Take a picture of the gate and look for Venetian influences throughout the City.

Zadar was pleasantly a very nice stop on our RC cruise to the Greek Island. It was clean and a nice visit to the sea organ and the old city

Perhaps we have visited too many places with ancient walls or gates recently, but this one was fine but not spectacular. The eastern section of the old city wall in Zadar was removed to make way for a sea-side promenade - that is actually the better attraction.

I was surprised by the size and condition of the old city. It is absolutely fascinating with its magnificent small narrow streets and wonderful old buildings. You can spend hours there enjoying the wonder of the place and eating great food at the many excellent restaurants. Highly recommend this place.

Thank Paul B
