Church of St Donat is located is central part of old town - very pretty area, especially when lit up at night (or at sunrise, for those early risers). Lots of history to discover in this area - books can be informative, but a guided tour will help you best appreciate the history behind this picturesque spot.

It's worth a pop in and a walk around and up the stairs to appreciate the history there. It's OLD! We were lucky enough to have a guide who also sang a capella to demonstrate the acoustics and explain which columns were still originals.

Nice walkable city. We visited last May labor day and weather was around 16 C. There were very few people around and it's a good 3 hrs walk around the city.

Beautiful church from Romanesque period. I really enjoyed it, as well as the square surounding it. Nice for a short stop-by.

This is a very old church dating to the early 9th century. It has a circular floor plan. It is now empty and unused. What is interesting is that its foundations are made of recognizable Roman ruins. Really worth visiting

The huge pillars take up a significant proportion of the ground area in this circular church.There are no pictures or furniture and is now used for musical recitals.It is a 10 minute visit.

It's worth remembering that despite the history in Zadar, this is. It a capital and therefore monuments more subdued than you might expect. St Donatus is lovely and can imagine in the sweltering summer months will offer a welcome respite from the heat. We enjoyed our short visit.
