Barkajoli – rowers of Zadar

What gondoliers are to Venice, ‘Barkajoli’ mean to Zadar. Namely, they have been transporting passengers from one side of the port to the other (from the lighthouse pier to the Peninsula) in their little rowing boats ever since the 14th century. They are now one of the symbols of Zadar city and this tradition is being succesfully transferred to other generations within a few families, in spite of the modern times challenges. Distance between the two ends of port is only 71 meters and it takes less than 2 minutes in a boat in order to cross it and saves 15 minutes in case you decide to walk over the bridge. Barkajoli were most busy during war time, when even women took over the service. Today, they are one of a kind in whole of Dalmatia, and one simply has to take a ride in these little boats in order to experience the city to the fullest.
