Impressive preservation to have lasted the last 2 devastating world wars. Stone appeared old, despite some signs of restorations.

I loved the old town in Zadar. Its a reminder of the roman empire and should be examined throughly. Theres a plaza and some stores and restaurants.

The lion with the wing is to symbolise St Mark and the open book implies the city sovereignty. It’s also knows the Land Gate.

The winged lion above the gate reveals the Influence of Venice on this beautiful Renaissance city. The city gate also conveys the vibe and charm of an old European city.

Loved walking about the old city, viewing the ruins, the sea organ and the greeting to the sun with a stop for coffee at an outdoor cafe. A very comfortable walking city.

Like most of towns on Dalmation coast this city gate is part of the wall surrounding the city for protection. Not terribly impressive wall on other side but this Venetian influenced arch is very nice. The decorations are well recognized and well preserved.

For those who have been to Verona, or Padova, or saw the fort in front of Lido on the Venetian lagoon, or even some fortifications in Crete and Cyprus this city gate is recognizably Venetian, and it leads into what remains of the beautiful old...More
