    Zadar is the seat of the Zadar-Knin County and a maritime, cultural, economic and tourist center. The city consists of the old core on the peninsula and the newer part along the coast. The pleasant climate with lush Mediterranean vegetation attracts many tourists.
    The city has a developed industry such as shipbuilding, textile, food, metal industry. Three important museums are located here, which are ethnographic, archaeological and natural history, historical archive, art gallery, scientific library and others. Zadar was mentioned in the Greek and Roman period under the name Iadera. The city has preserved the urban structure of the Roman castrum, and the largest area of the town is built with partitioned houses from the Romanesque and Gothic periods. The most important of the pre-Romanesque monuments is the rotunda of St. Donat, which is 27 meters high, has three apses, and the interior is divided into two naves. Because it has good acoustics, classical music concerts are organized there. Near the Forum is the Franciscan monastery with the church of St. Fran, the oldest Gothic monument in Dalmatia. The construction of the monastery began in 1249 and was completed in its original form by the end of the century. The largest restoration works were made in 1858.
    The Church of St. Francis was built in the same period. It was consecrated as a basilica on November 13, 1280. It was renovated in the Baroque style in the 17th and 18th centuries. The monastery complex with an art collection is a cultural and historical monument of national importance.
