The Forum, Zadar

(280+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Plan your visit to The Forum and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Zadar family vacation planner.
