Not used for religious service for about the last 200 years, the Church of St Donatus remains the symbol of Zadar and probably the most important structure in Croatia from the early Middle Ages.
The church has a round Byzantine style shape and is important to Croat folklore because it survived a Mongol invasion from the 13th century. It carries the name of Saint Donat after the bishop who had it built.
Today its space is used (due to its extraordinary acoustics) for St. Donatus Musical Evenings which take place in July and August. The evenings feature classical music performers from around the globe.
