Monument to Napoleon

Entering from the west side of the city, you can see the Napoleon statue. It was created in honour of Marshal Marmont, who ruled on Napoleon’s behalf in Dalmatia.It was a short period but successful. In 1808, a monument was unveiled, originally located near the Franciscan monastery. After Napoleon’s defeat in 1814, during the reign of the Austrians, the inscription on the monument was changed and a new one was carved in honour of the Austrian Tsar. In 1818 it was moved to its present location.
