Galerija Vilhar

1) Galerija Vilhar

Just a corner off from the Fish Market, we begin our author arts and crafts tour of Zadar. Galeria Vilhar is a gallery with a long-standing tradition and one that boasts probably the most attractive location in the disused Saint Andrew’s and Saint Peter the Elder’s Church. You will find an array of Dalmatian origin ceramics, ceramic jewellery, and even oil paintings or graphic art. Some of the works obviously come from craft workshops and can be seen sold on the streets of Zadar too. The gallery is open all days 9-20.
Slon Paskosky Gallery

2) Slon Paskosky Gallery

The Slon Paskosky gallery is a single artist boutique held by the painter Ognjen Lalić, whom you will most likely encounter in person readying some materials and listening to a cool, café style music. You can purchase his oil paintings paying homage to Surrealism, Expressionism as well as Art Nouveaux. Discover his original assemblage of styles for yourself! Lalić’s gallery is a colourful, inspiring place and there is a number of smaller pictures for purchase too. The gallery is open mornings and late afternoons.
Terre Verte

3) Terre Verte

The Terre Verte is a classic exhibition space run by the academic painter Ruža Bagarić and art historian Kristina Mijić. The gallery diplays both Croatian and international art with a focus on photography, but you may encounter other media as well, including oil paintings and ceramics. The aim is to feature 5-6 exhibitions per year. The choice is utterly made by the owners based on their contacts, as the gallery is not a member of any particular arts association. See what they have prepared for you! The gallery is open Monday through Saturday 9-12 and 17-20.

4) Angelika

Don’t get led off the path on your way to the next surprise. Particularly, if you are a jewellery person. Angelika Wolyniec’s author boutique is the right place to shop for gifts that are both affordable and original. Angelika likes to use different media for her jewellery too, so you can buy wooden ‘talisman-like’ or ‘fairy-style’ necklaces, which handsomely combine materials such as metals, leather or pearls. If you are after a nice pair of earrings, why not try the sea-glass ones – they are amazing! The gallery is open all days 10-22.

5) Anima

The Anima gallery of the painter Zoran Debelić, is a small chamber that is also inhabited by the artist himself during the day. Enter his world of violent purples, ladies in corsets wearing hats, Zadar’s streets, the sea and boats. His ink drawings on card board are especially worth your attention, because they might be otherwise cast a shadow on by the vivid landscapes of the artist’s world of blues, purples and violets! In the summer season, the gallery is open weekdays 9-13 and 17-20 and Saturdays 9-13.
Galeria Pia

6) Galeria Pia

Reportedly one of the oldest galleries in Zadar, the Pia gallery presents an assembly of solely Croatian artists. Here, too, you can not only purchase a solid piece of art, but you can also buy small articles like ceramic bells as nice souvenirs or very original gifts. Why not browse through the numerous works of art on stock. In the summer season, the gallery is open weekdays 8.30-13 and 17.30-20 and Saturdays 8.30-13.

Zadar Introduction Walking Tour

Ancient Zadar presides over a spacious harbor from a rocky promontory once separated from the mainland by a deep moat. In 59 BC, it was decreed a municipality by none other than Julius Caesar. Germanic tribes, Byzantines, Slavs, Franks, and Ottomans, had all ruled the area at one time and left their marks. Venice ruled Zadar from 1409 to 1797.
