During the Roman period, Zadar’s name was Iader or Colonia Iulia Iader. Near the coast, you will find the remnants of the Roman Forum. Additionally, two museums provide you with remarkable ancient Roman stuff. [German]
Archaeological Museum of Zadar
The Archaeological Museum of Zadar stands next to the remains of the Roman Forum and the early Medieval church of St Donat. It displays artefacts from the Palaeolithic to the end of the 11th century.
Museum of Ancient Glas
The Museum of Ancient Glas shows objects dating back to the period from the 1st century BC to the 5th century AD. An associated glass-making workshop offers replicas of ancient pieces.
