Top square

 A place to meet & greet… since ancient times! The Roman Forum has been a central place for public life for millennia, so take a moment to enjoy it. As you are chilling on an outdoor terrace over a cup of coffee or a refreshment, look around and consider your next move and your surroundings. Namely, you are just a few steps away from Zadar’s landmark St Donatus’ Church, the Archaeological Museum, the Gold & Silver of Zadar exhibition, or the promenade.

Top street

Feel the pulse of the city - along Kalelarga! The most famous street may be the oldest in the city, but it still remains the liveliest. Songs have been written about it, important events celebrated there, and still you won’t find it as Kalelarga on the map. Simply because it is officially called Široka ulica, which happens to be the Croatian translation of the original name.
