Archaeological Exhibitions in Zadar
Exhibitions in Zadar are not only for art lovers but also for history lovers. Do not miss the opportunity to see a collection of war and hunting weapons and accessories from the Istrian collector. You will also hear stories about Napoleon and the Ottoman, Habsburg and Venetian times.
The exhibition will feature more than 250 exhibits from the 15th to the 19th century. In addition, there is an exhibition of archaeological remains from a shipwreck from the 17th century in the church of St. Nicholas. However, this exhibition will not be open throughout the season, so we advise you to hurry.
Also in the church of St. Donat, you can see another interesting archaeological exhibition. These are two prehistoric treasuries of Portugal, namely the archaeological sites of Côa and Lagar Velho. Twenty years ago, the skeleton of a 29,000-year-old boy was found there, which also became a national symbol.
By no means miss the opportunity to see such archaeological remains live. This is an unforgettable insight into our history and evolution and at the same time an educational trip. If you have already decided to visit Zadar, do not forget about the Zadar ramparts. Take the opportunity to visit them with a professional tourist guide who can explain the history of this building in detail.
Its purpose was primarily a defence mechanism, which is obvious. The importance of these ramparts is evidenced by the fact that it is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. One of these buildings is the Fortress, but it is located a little further, in Šibenik-Knin County. In addition to these events, there are many more in the area. The whole of Dalmatia is full of life during the season. So wherever you go, you will find interesting events.
