Court’s Palace (Zadar)

As a result of strict regime of Austrian authorities, a new prison was built in the middle of 19th century on the green area next to the Bortolazzi family house. Following that, there was also a growing need for a new courthouse that was finally built completely in a period between 1902 and 1904. The old prison determined the U-shape ground plan and several buildings and houses had to be torn down in order to build it. They also formed a smaller square in front of the palace court. The old prison was demolished after the World War II so palace got upgraded into a square complex. The whole building was built in a traditional style, prominent on the ground floor and smooth and horizontal on the upper two floors. The floors are divided by horizontal moldings but the most beautiful decoration is the central entrance with three large arch portals and a relief depicting female head, showing Athena – the goddess of wisdom and justice. Along with lots of windows, facade is also decorated with a balcony. Indoor pillars and decorations are made of white stone from the island of Brač while its size that stands out from the surrounding area was concealed with rich painted decorations.
