St Donatus’ Church

The symbol of the city of Zadar and the most famous edifices in Croatia from the early Middle Ages (9th century).

The Church of St. Donatus is round pre-Romanesque church, which was called the Church of the Holy Trinity until the 15th century, when it has been named the St Donatus Church, by the bishop who had it built.

The church was mentioned for the first time in the middle of 10th century, in the documents of the Byzantine emperor Constantine VII Porphyrogennetos. Today, it is used for musical events, due to its extraordinary acoustic features.
