Zadar, historically known as Zara (from Venetian and Italian), is the oldest continuously inhabited city in Croatia.

Everything that has ever mattered in Zadar, since the medieval period, happened or was heard of at the People's Square. This is where life happens. It is a small square, but very well organized and with lots of restaurants and shops around. Narodni trg assumed the role of the city’s main square after the Roman forum fell into disuse.

Among the sights of Zadar, you will find the City Guard, which dates back to 1562 and at the top there is a clock tower dating from the 19th century.

The Gradska Loža (City Lodge/Town Loggia) where municipal decisions were once made is situated across from City Guard. Today set behind glass, it functions as an exhibition space.

As an aside, we only spent two nights in Zadar – in hindsight, we could have used another day. We really enjoyed our time here, Zadar is one of Dalmatia’s larger cities, but it did not feel that way, and parking was affordable (rate increases during the summer, we visited in May). It also has a long history with lots of interesting architecture. First settled by the Illyrians, the Romans, then Venetians, heavily bombed during WWII and held under siege during the Homeland War.

From the People's Square, paths lead in all directions, but take the time to grab a coffee.

People’s Square is historically the centre of public life in Zadar and has apparently gone through various transformations over the years.The current Town Hall was built in recent times, however, traces of old Zadar can still be found like the small Pre-Romanesque St Lawrence Church and the City Guard which was erected during mid-century. Presently many cafes and bars enclose the square.

Peoples Square; Since its Medieval origins Narodni Trg has been the core of Zadar's public life. Dominating the westerns side of the square, the City Guard dates back to the 1562 and it's crested by a 19th-century clock tower. Nearby, St. Lawrence church is the oldest preserved building of the town, while the Loggia on the opposite side is now a venue for exhibitions. It is only small but perfectly formed.

During our spring visit to Zafar, my husband and myself found ourselves coming back to this lovely square at some point every day for a drink and a chance to watch the world go by.

I recommend doing the same!

Home to some extremely beautiful buildings - including a bookshop in some old Roman fronted building - there are plenty of interesting people to watch bustling about, including some pretty good buskers; frequent dog walkers and even the occasional curious feline!

Short walk from the harbour and old town wall elevated walk, or any old town restaurants and bars.

Beautiful square in the heart of Zarda Old Town. Plenty of beautiful buildings, including the Gradska Loza and the City Guard (Gradska Straža). No lack of bars & restaurants.
