Day 2: Zadar, Croatia (5)
Returning to the Old Town, we headed for the , 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.
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.
Remnants of Roman columns look like bollards next to the
imposing Cathedral of St. Anastasia.
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.)
