From supplier: this walking tour includes only the visit of the Cathedral of St. Anastasia from the outside.The entrance fee for the cathedral is not included.The tour starts from the waterfront (the Greeting to The Sun monument is the meeting point for this walking tour). Right next to the Greeting to the Sun monument is another popular city attraction - The Sea Organ, an urban installation which produces music by the help of sea waves. Then, the customers strolls along the waterfront and reach the area of the roman Forum. Forum was the main city square during the Roman times.

Find yourself in the heart of this magnificent Old Town of Zadar. A walking tour includes a visit to the Cathedral of St. Anastasia, the finest example of Romanesque architecture in Zadar which has a notable W front of 1324. It is dedicated to St. Anastasia, whose stone sarchophagus is in the apse to the left of the high altar.
