Church of St. Donatus

The Church of St. Donatus is a symbol of the city of Zadar and the most famous monumental edifice of the Early Middle Ages (9th century) in Croatia. It is named after the bishop who began its construction. The earliest mention of the church is found in the works of the 10th century Byzantine emperor Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus.
Due to its extraordinary acoustic properties, it is used as a venue for various musical performances (“Glazbene večeri u sv. Donatu”, or St Donatus Musical Evenings“).
