BUGGY THROUGH BUNKERS
One of the less known fatcs is that Zadar in its near surroundings has more than 200 bunkers! Impressive number, don't you think? Why is that? Well, with the end of the First World War, Italy gained Zadar under its rule, by the Treaty of Rapallo. Zadar became an Italian enclave on the east coast of the Adriatic. Shortly after the war, the Italians saw a military-geographical shortcoming of this territory. Namely, the hinterland consisted of Ravni kotari, a flat terrain ideal for enemy attacks. In fear of attacks from the interior, over 200 bunkers were built in two sectors, land and sea. In the Zadar area there are nine different types of bunkers, from the simplest circular positions made of stone and concrete to large and , for that time, the most modern reinforced concrete bunkers. Another interesting fact is that the bunkers were barely used until the Homeland war in 1992...Come explore them with us, and find out more stories..
