I was passing by this place. I didn't think it was a place for major tourism. However, it is cute. You won't mess out if you do not see it.

This Clock Tower is in the Central Square of Zadar with City Hall & the Tourist Info centre and is surrounded by small bars ,restaurants, hotels & museums. We took the opportunity to relax with a cold one before our next walk ! A good spot to people watch & enjoy.

One of the most picturesque spots in the old town of Zadar. It is close to the centre of town with other attractions nearby

Situated in People's Square, this little building has character and is photogenic too. We enjoyed taking photos of its tiny clock tower as well as experiencing the hustle & bustle of the Square

The clock tower itself is easy to over look while it is impressive what really catches your eye is the large square where people gather and have coffee and a chat.

The City Sentinel is basically the Clock Tower on Zadar's main square. It is adorable and presents a pleasing appearance, adding a delightful touch to this very attractive square.

Here's always something going on - live music, painting or just some meetings. The nearby coffees' are always full, there are so many people and that's what gives the soul to this place.

City sentinel is located on main square in town. During morning and evening this is meeting point of local people so there is always a rush. On main square, in front of city sentinel during evenings musicians are playing famous domestic and international music and that gives special atmosphere to this place :)
