Doors 207 – Croatia doors (part 3)
This week, I return to doors of Croatia, after a week of absence skiing in the French Alps (I thought I’d just slip that in). These doors are from the magnificent city of Zadar, at one time an immensely important trading port in the Adriatic, and its former affluence is very impressive indeed. I would thoroughly recommend it as a place to see if you choose to visit Croatia. So, no more flim flam, here are the doors:
The Land Gate, as it is known, is an impressive entrance to the old city, which has very thick fortified walls. You will note the strong Venetian influence with the lion of Saint Mark over the archway.
I am enjoying reliving our family holiday to Croatia in August 2022 through these pictures. Next up, I will take you to the city of Pula on the southern tip of the Istrian Peninsula.
If you have made it this far, you probably like doors, and you really ought to take a look at the No Facilities blog by Dan Anton who has taken over the hosting of Thursday Doors from Norm 2.0 blog. Links to more doorscursions can be found in the comments section of Dan Anton’s Thursday Doors post.
