Zadar Croatia

Zadar - The oldest Croatian city

Zadar is a beautiful coastal town along the Adriatic Sea in the country of Croatia. It has quickly become a popular tourist destination due to the number of budget airlines flying into the region and also its close proximity to Plitvice Lakes, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Zadar can be experienced as a weekend getaway or as a short stop-gap before moving on to other destinations in Croatia. Either way, it is a destination not to be missed.

There are plenty of things to do in Zadar despite its relatively small size. From exploring Roman ruins, visiting quirky museums, relaxing on one of Zadar’s many beautiful beaches – you will not be short of things to do.

Things to explore

Zadar is the perfect destination for this as the town is quite small and easy to explore.

Simply begin at the Land Gate, built-in 1543 so that you can walk all the way around the walled-in town.

Roam along the cobbled lined streets, through the old Roman archways and down the narrow alleyways. There are lots of delicious ice-cream stalls and cafes along the way if you want to escape the crowds during the summer months.

Other things you shouldn’t miss are The Bell Tower, Land Gate, Church of St. Donatus, Sea Organ and the Greeting to the Sun.
