Originally called the Church of the Holy Trinity, the chancel has been renamed after its founder St. Donatus in 15th century, exactly 6 years after its construction. Built on the ruins of the Roman Forum, the pre romanesque church reflects the Byzantine style of engineering and stands as the very symbol of Zadar in the world. Travelers huddle to the place to witness its simplistic yet intriguing design and historical significance. The enormaring structure, once a church, has now become a muse for artists who waits to see its famous annual International Festival called ‘The Musical Evenings in St Donatus' unfold every year.

  • Not crowded and plenty of time ti look around. Spectacular items of bygone years.

  • Great looking church from the outside, the church is located in the middle of town and you will not miss it, if anything you will go past it every day.

  • Must see. Architectural design is quite different and revealed base shows scavenged Roman ruins used in construction.

  • This large public area is definitely people square, I like it especially conjunct next to riverbank and to the center of town. No much green but it’s nice that offers wild open view to the sea.

  • History with big H. Must see Zadar at least once in lifetime
