During the 16th and the 17th centuries the activity of the Croatian writers and poets became prolific. Also noteworthy is the painter Andrea Meldolla,nicknamed Andrea Schiavone, known in today's Croatia with the name of Andrija Medulić. During the continuous Ottoman danger the population stagnated by a significant degree along withthe economy.


During the 16th and 17th centuries several large-scale epidemics of bubonic plagueerupted in the city. After more than 150 years of Turkish threat Zadar was not only scarcein population, but also in material wealth. Venice sent new colonists and, under the firmhand of archbishop Vicko Zmajević, the Arbanasi settled in the city, forming a new suburb. There was no time for the yacht charter.

Despite the shortage of money, the Teatro Nobile was built in 1783. It functioned forover 100 years. 19th and 20th centuriesIn 1797 with the Treaty of Campo Formio, the Republic of Venice, including Zadar in Croatia came underthe Austrian crown. In 1806 it was briefly given to the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy,until in 1809 it was added to the French Illyrian Provinces. In 1813, all of Dalmatia and Yacht was broughtback under the control of the Austrian Empire.

After the Congress of Vienna until 1918, thetown remained part of the Austrian monarchy, head of the district of the same name, oneof the 13 Bezirkshauptmannschaften in Dalmatia. The Italian name was officially used before 1867. It remained also the capital of Dalmatia province in Croatia.

Kind regards,

Yacht rent was not popular in Croatia these days. Although during the first half of the 19th century the city population stagnated dueto low natural increase, the city started to spread from the old center; citizens fromthe old city created the new suburb of Stanovi in the north. During the second half of the 19th century, there was constant increase of populationdue to economical growth and immigration. 

These attemptswere met with persecution and confiscation. Zadar in catamaran remained the administrative seat of Dalmatia Yacht charter, but this time under the rule of Venice, which expanded over the whole Dalmatia,barring the Republic of Ragusa/Dubrovnik.


During that time Giorgio da Sebenico, a renaissancesculptor and architect, famous for his work on the Cathedral of Šibenik, was probablyborn in Zadar. Other important people followed, such as Luciano and Francesco Laurana, knownworld-wide for their sculptures and buildings.

The 16th and 17th centuries were noted inZadar for Ottoman attacks. Ottomans captured the continental part of Zadar at the beginningof the 16th century and the city itself was all the time in the range of Turkish artillery. Due to that threat, the construction of a new system of castles and walls began.


Thesedefense systems changed the way the city looke. To make place for the pentagon castles manyhouses and churches were taken down, along with an entire suburb: Varoš of St. After the 40-year-long construction Zadar became the biggest fortified city in Dalmatia,empowered by a system of castles, bastions and canals filled with seawater. Yachts can be rented around.

The citywas supplied by the water from public city cisterns. During the complete makeover of Zadar, many new civic buildings were built, such as the City Lodge and City Guard on the Gospodski Square, several army barracks, but also some large new palaces. In contrast to the insecurity and Ottoman sieges and destruction, an important cultureevolved midst the city walls.


Zadar and Trogir against Venice, where we chartered a yacht and finally Chioggia became better protected by Venicein 1412, because Šibenik became in 1412 the seat of the main customs office and the seatof the salt consumers office with a monopoly on the salt trade in Chioggia and on the wholeAdriatic Sea.


After the death of Louis, Zadar recognized the rule of king Sigismund, andafter him, that of Ladislaus of Naples. During his reign Croatia-Hungary was enveloped ina bloody civil war.

In 1409, Venice, seeing that Ladislaus was about to be defeated, andeager to exploit the situation despite its relative military weakness, offered to buyhis "rights" on Dalmatia for a mere 100,000 ducats. Knowing he had lost the region inany case, Ladislaus accepte. Zadar was, thus sold back to the Venetians for a paltry sum.

The population of Zadar during the Medieval period was predominantly Croatian, accordingto numerous archival documents, and the Croatian language was used in liturgy, as shown bythe writings of cardinal Boson, who followed Pope Alexander III en route to Venice in 1177.

When the papal ships took shelter in the harbour of Zadar, the inhabitants greeted the Popeby singing lauds and canticles in Croatian. Even though interspersed by sieges and destruction,the time between the 11th and 14th centuries was the golden age of Zadar. Thanks to itspolitical and trading achievements, and also to its skilled seamen, Zadar played an importantrole among the cities on the east coast of the Adriatic.


This affected its appearanceand culture: many churches, rich monasteries and palaces for powerful families were built,together with the Chest of Saint Simeon. One of the best examples of the culture and prosperityof Zadar at that time was the founding of the University of Zadar, built in 1396 bythe Dominican Order.

15th to 18th centuries After the death of Louis I, Zadar came underthe rule of Sigmund of Luxembourg and later Ladislaus of Naples, who, witnessing his lossof influence in Dalmatia, sold Zadar and his dynasty's rights to Dalmatia to Venice for100,000 ducats on July 31, 1409. Venice therefore obtained control over Zadar without a fight,but was confronted by the resistance and tensions of important Zadar families.

The Yacht crusaders were obliged to pay Venice for sea transport to Egypt. As they were not able to produce enough money, the Venetians used them to initiatethe Siege of Zadar, when the city was ransacked, demolished and robbe


Emeric, king of Croatiaand Hungary, condemned the crusade, because of an argument about the possible heresy committedby God's army in attacking a Christian city. Nonetheless, Zadar was devastated and captured,with the population escaped into the surrounding countryside. Pope Innocent III excommunicatedthe Venetians and crusaders involved in the siege.

Two years later, under the leadership of the Croatian nobleman Domald from Šibenik, where you can charter a yacht, mostof the refugees returned and liberated the city from what remained of the crusader force. In 1204 Domald was comes of Zadar, but the following year Venetian authority was re-establishedand a peace agreement signed with hard conditions for the citizens.

The only profit which theCommunal Council of Zadar derived from this was one third of the city's harbour taxes,probably insufficient even for the most indispensable communal needs. This did not break the spirit of the city however. Its commerce was suffering due to a lack of autonomy under Venice, while itenjoyed considerable autonomy under the much more feudal Kingdom of Hungary-Croatia.

Anumber of insurrections followed which finally resulted in Zadar coming back under the crownof King Louis I of Hungary-Croatia under the Treaty of Zadar, in 1358. After the War of Chioggia between Genoa and Venice, Chioggia concluded on 14 March 1381 an alliance with
