The University of Zadar is a university located in Zadar, Croatia. The university in its current modern form was founded in 2002 but can trace its lineage to 1396, thus making it the oldest tertiary institution in the Former Yugoslavia and one of the oldest in Europe.HistoryThe original University of Zadar was originally founded by the Dominicans in 1396 as Universitas Iadertina, a theological seminary, Iadertina being the Latin version of Zadar. It was the first institute of higher learning in the country. In 1807 it ceased to become an independent institution and its functions were taken over by other local universities. In 1956 the University of Zagreb, the country's second oldest university, re-established it as its satellite Faculty of Arts campus. The Faculty later became a part of the University of Split. More than six centuries after the original university's founding, in 2002, the Croatian Parliament passed an act to allow for its re-founding as a full-fledged independent university. The new University of Zadar opened its doors to students in January 2003.Since its reestablishment, the University has continued to grow from strength to strength. The Bologna process was implemented for the 2005-06 academic year as with all Croatian universities. A follow-up study a year later showed that the move greatly benefited University and has increased its profile internationally. This allowed it to engage in collaborative research agreements and student exchange programmes with other reputable universities around the continent. It also has agreements with universities in South America and the United States. First Croatian president, Franjo Tuđman, graduated on University of Zadar on 28 December 1965, which was then part of University of Zagreb.Using our online itinerary creator, Zadar attractions like University of Zadar can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

It's a university building, with a nice architecture. Most impressive thing about it is the view it offers for its students.
