City Sentinel, Zadar

(4.3/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Plan to meet at City Sentinel, a clock tower and recognized landmark in Zadar's lively main square. Croatia and Italy share a lot of the same visual culture, as evidenced by this Renaissance-style structure designed by a Venetian architect. The surrounding stone barrier was built after the clock tower itself and once held canons to protect the heart of the city. While the fortification was a part of the national museum in the past, it now serves as a favorite meeting place for visitors and locals. Use our Zadar tourist route planner to add City Sentinel and other attractions to your Zadar vacation plans.

  • This clock tower is located Narodni Zadar's old town square. It was felt that the notice does not look from far away because it is not so high, go to Narodni square. Around the clock face is pink color was cute.
