ANTIQUITY DAYS | ZADAR | MAY 30-JUNE 01


calendar 30.05.2019 - 01.06.2019

 

Fancy a journey back into times gone by in Zadar? The Roman empire, which once dominated almost all of Europe, left a more than noticeable trace on the old face of Zadar, and while much of that can still be seen in many places in this famous Dalmatian city today, it wouldn´t be enough without having an event dedicated to the Roman presence on these shores and more specifically in the City of Zadar.

 

As you probably already know, Zadar, a highly popular Dalmatian destination for tourists from all over the world, is a city with a very, very long history. A large part of that history is from the formerly glorious Roman period. The old city, traditionally known as ´´Poluotok´´ is full of Roman ruins.

 

However, that´s not where it all begins and ends when it comes to showcasing Zadar´s rich history with its long Roman past. That´s where Zadar´s Antiquity Days come in, with their interactive approach of reviving the spirit of old Roman times.


Traditionally, local students of archaeology from the University of Zadar have been organising the popular Antiquity Days manifestation in cooperation with the Archaeological Museum of Zadar and other generous sponsors.


The program includes a workshop for children, a treasure hunt, book promotions and much more, all rounded off with the final entertainment program held on Zadar´s beautiful Forum.

A small procession through the streets of Poluotok, where the emperor and the empress will say hello to citizens and visitors alike will eventually end up on Zadar´s Forum. Gladiator fights, oriental dances and a fire show are also will entertain the crowds. There, the emperor will decide on whether or not Zadar and its citizens have been loyal to the Roman Empire. Make sure to be there and enjoy this trip into Zadar´s past!
