A very popular spot located west of the Riva. The Republic Square is surrounded on three sides by a collection of elaborate neo-Renaissance buildings (known as the Prokurative). The open side (south) provides a beautiful view of the harbor and waterfront. Following largely the Italian tradition, it has a colonnade resembling the Venetian style.

The Prokurative was built by a rich local on the model of St. Mark's Square, Venice - recall that Venice was the dominant power in the Adriatic for centuries. It has interest architecturally and as a curiosity.

This square out of the Palace area is often missed by the tourists but is interesting and a surprise when you first see it if you are not expecting its classic lines. Well worth passing through.

We however found a bike rental there and rent a bike for a couple of hours. That was good fun to ride along the sea side. We originally thought we could bike up to... More
