Rector's Palace

  Poljana Šime Budinića     24 May 2023
One of the city’s prized buildings, the 13th-century Rector’s Palace is located in the eastern part of the Zadar peninsula. Over the centuries the palace has experienced many changes, both scarce and stylistic. Archaeological research of its foundations had revealed parts of the building from the Roman and Late Antiquity period to wall structures showing Romanesque and Gothic layers. Historically, three restructured projects have taken place; in the 16th century, 19th century and in the 21st century. The latter was due to its bombing during the Homeland War where it was hit by eight large calibre missiles, causing heavy destruction and damaging the statics of the building. The palace has been reconstructed thanks to EU funding and is now a modern equipped cultural complex. This tourist attraction unites the museum space, its temporary exhibition halls, and representative halls decorated and conserved in different historical styles. It also has a video gallery, concert and multimedia halls. In keeping to its natural and original beauty, the Rector’s Palace is now a treasure of the city well worth visiting.
