The City Lodge, which was built in the 13th century for purposes of public and political meetings and legal gatherings, still stands in the square.
The oldest preserved building of the square is the little Church of St. Lovro, built in the 11th century.
By the way, my favorite ice cream parlor in Zadar can also be found here!
These palm trees can be found along Zadar's promenade, which has a view of the islands of Ugljan and Pasman and the open sea to the northwest. The promenade was constructed in 1874 after the city fortification walls were torn down. In 1906, some 18 deluxe public buildings and flats were constructed, as well as a dock for fast ships. During World War II, a many of the buildings were damaged in the bombardment, and were later either reconstructed or partially replaced by parks and these palm trees.
The history of the city goes back more than 3000 years. Zadar was under the rule of many nations throughout the centuries, including the Turks, Venetians, Hungarians, etc. At the time of the Hungarian rule, the city was called Zara.
Zadar is highly attractive due to its great natural position in the central part of the Adriatic coast, and to the four National Parks surrounding it: Plitvica Lakes, Paklenica mountains, the unique Krka waterfalls and the Kornati Islands.
