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.

St. Donatus Church, Zadar Reviews - Write a Review

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

  • Best views from the top. Good exercise to get there!! Winding metal staircase not for the faint hearted

  • A beautiful historic site. Simple in the interior; some call it boring but really that gives it a unique experience. No golden artifacts, no ceiling paintings nor wall arts, just a grand structure to experience how it could be in the ancient days. I quite enjoy it.

  • Beautiful historic site. You can climb on top between 9am to 10pm

  • An interesting building including the feature of clear use of parts of a previous Roman temple as the foundation stones.
