Day 2: Zadar, Croatia (5)

Returning to the Old Town, we headed for the Forum, which dates back to the 1st Century B.C. The large square is dotted with columns, partly reconstructed walls, and other remnants of Zadar's days as a Roman colony.


Roman Forum, Zadar

In this photo, the Cathedral of St. Anastasia (left) and the 9th-Century Church of St. Donat serve as backdrops to the Roman ruins.


This view shows St. Mary's Convent (11th Century) alongside the ruins and St. Donat's Church.


Zadar Cathedral and Roman Forum

Remnants of Roman columns look like bollards next to the imposing Cathedral of St. Anastasia.


Souvenir stands by Zadar's Roman Forum

The Romans profited from international trade, and so do the vendors who operate souvenir stands alongside the Roman Forum and Zadar's waterfront. (Except for this row of stalls, central Zadar is mostly free of cheap tourist claptrap.)
