Zadar's People's Square (Narodni trg) is a large piazza that has been the heart of the city's public life since the Renaissance. The 16th-century City Guard building with its 19th-century clock tower is a great starting place if you want to explore the square's historic structures. Nearby, behind the Café Bar Sveti Lovre, is the gemlike Church of St. Lawrence, dating back to the 11th century. The City Loggia on the southern side of the square is a 13th-century building now used as an art-exhibition space. You can take in these august edifices or just find a seat at one of the square's cafés: Order a carafe of wine or a coffee and watch the locals stroll by.
