The city of Zadar is protected by four patron saints: Anastasia, Zoilo, Simeon and Grisogone. Donat was the bishop of Zadar, and in the 9th cent. he received relics from the Byzantine car Nikifor, the ashes of the Srijem martyr Anastasia, and brought them to Zadar. Zadar's cathedral was nemed after this martyr, as well as the cake made of young cheese and marasca sour cherries. The recipe for this cake would not be disclosed by its proud owner.
