Photographer's Note

Zadar is the main city of northern Dalmatia. The resulting even in times of Illyrian, expanded by the Romans, the traces of which are currently derived from the light of day in the old town. Are visible traces of Venetian and the years 1409-1797. Then for a short time Napoleon arrived here on a little longer Habsburgs.

Interestingly, however, is that in the period 1920-1941 on the basis of the Treaty of Rapallo, Italy was committed to Zadar, a small enclave of Zara. This resulted, moreover, that Zadar, an important port in the region, not being part of Yugoslavia lost its importance to the city of Split.

Cathedral Sv. Stošije (St. Anastasia) comes from the turn of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, has features of Romanesque and Gothic styles. The facade is decorated with arches that emphasize the three-nave structure. The large window in the shape of a rose adorning the façade is in Romanesque style, while the smaller, above it, in Gothic style. The relics of St. Anastasia found in a marble sarcophagus on the altar in the left apse. It is the largest cathedral in Dalmatia. Next to the Cathedral stands tall bell tower. This bell tower built between the XV - XIX century, stands on the back of the cathedral, which is a bit confusing.

This is a scan from negative.
