The Forum, Zadar

3.7
The ruins of The Forum seem to sprout directly from the city's alleys and streets. The ancient forum dates back to the 1st century BCE--during the Roman period, it was the center of the area's religious and civic life. One intact column remains, which in the medieval times served as a shaming post for criminals, who endured public humiliation by being chained at this spot.

Where to stay in Zadar

If proximity to the sights in Zadar is your priority, opt to stay in the old town, a compact area packed with historical buildings. Although this area offers few budget-friendly hotel rooms, you can choose from affordable hostels within walking distance of the city's main sights. Zadar's resort hotels tend to hug the coastline, a short drive out of the city. Book ahead if you want to stay there, or stop by the city's tourist office for a list of private rooms closer to the city center.
