Croatia – Venetian Works of Defence between the 16th and 17th Centuries: Stato da Terra – Western Stato da Mar

In July this year, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee decided to include the Zadar city walls or ‘’Zadarski bedemi’’ onto the UNESCO World Heritage List.

A few days ago, the mayor of Zadar Branko Dukić was officially presented with the UNESCO Charter for the entry of ‘’Zadarski bedemi’’ on the UNESCO’s list as a cultural asset within the transnational project ‘’Venetian Works of Defence between the 16th and 17th Centuries: Stato da Terra – Western Stato da Mar’’.

In January of 2016, Croatia, Italy and Montenegro sent UNESCO a proposal to enter the UNESCO World Heritage Site list within the joint cultural asset.

UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Culture, Francesco Bandarin, has presented the head of Šibenik-Knin County, Goran Pauk, the certificate of inscription to UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

One of the most famous sights in Sibenik, St. Nicholas Fortress, and Zadar’s fortified city walls and gates have been confirmed as UNESCO protected World Heritage sites, contributing to eight UNESCO sites in Croatia.

Beech tree forests in Northern Velebit and Paklenica National Parks were named as new world heritage sites, as well.

Once the largest city-fortress in the entire Republic of Venice, Zadar’s city defence walls allowed it to keep more of its independence than most of its neighbouring cities, and meant that it was never captured by the Turks.

Built by Venetians, the city walls have had several entrances knocked through them at more secure points in Zadar’s history. Today, only portions of the walls and eight gates remain.
