Description

Stroll along the wide Venetian waterfront, known as the Riva degli Schiavoni. It is believed that it was named after the Croats who had their trade stands there, and which the Venetians previously called Slavonia, or Schiavonia. Because of the St. Mark’s Square, located nearby, the waterfront had an extremely significant position, suitable for the development of trade.

Pass through one of the most famous bridges in Venice, the Bridge of Sighs. There are several legends associated with the origin of such a name. According to the first legend, the name originated from the sighs of lovers who passed there. However, since the bridge was built in the 17th century as a link between the old and the new prison, according to another legend, prisoners who sighed because of their suffering, were passing there and it was after their sighs that the bridge was named. It is interesting to know that one of the prisoners who managed to escape is the famous seducer Giacomo Casanova.

Venice is dominated by its most beautiful spacious square, St. Mark's Square. It represents a combination of different cultures with each new person who steps on it, and in fact it is considered the only square in Venice because all the others, due to their smaller size, are called camps, i.e. fields. It is also famous because it houses the basilica of the same name, which originally served as the doge's chapel, and in 1807 became a cathedral. It is believed that its construction began in 828, when the powers of St. Mark transferred here from Alexandria. According to legend, Alexandria did not allow the body to be taken out of the city, and these powers were brought to Venice by deception. The basilica was demolished several times, and was finally completed in the 11th century. There are also the famous Procuratorates, i.e. three two-storey palaces, connected in the shape of a horseshoe, and they were once inhabited by the highest state orders, the so-called procurators, among whom the doge was elected. It is believed that Italian procurators served as a model for the construction of those in Split. The procurator who was elected doge would get a residence in the so-called To the Doge's Palace and he would reside there for as long as his term lasts.

Apart from squares, churches and palaces, Venice is best known for its numerous canals, and the largest and busiest of them is the so-called Grand Canal. It also houses the most important bridge, the Rialto Bridge, which for years was the only way to cross the canal on
