City Sentinel, Zadar

#24 of 87 in Things to do in Zadar
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.

  • Located on the northwest side of Narodni square of the old town. In the 13th century building, at that time was used as a court. Now is the Museum of Ethnology. The large clock tower in the middle is somewhat shabby exterior stone buildings are run-down, but often stood out. Landmark building with clock tower even if going to where the city becomes like a landmark, or used to meet, got lost on the way. City Sentinel also probably like that exist?
