Napoleon's Road in Dalmatia – The Contribution of the French Administration in the Development of Road Construction in Dalmatia at the Beginning of the 19th Century

Karolina Ražov


The idea of organizing the exhibition originated in the State Archives in Zadar, which preserves numerous sources dating from the time of the French administration and which deal with the emergence of road infrastructure in Dalmatia in later periods. The exhibition includes historical documents, plans, drafts, specifications, budgets, official correspondence, maps and books: a total of 63 originals and reproductions are on display. The exhibition shows how the French administration in Dalmatia initiated and realized the construction of certain sections of Napoleon's road that was to run along the entire length of the Illyrian provinces, from Ljubljana to Dubrovnik and further south.
