Holiday in Zadar

Croatie

 

Soak up some culture by the sea

Croatia is a land of contrasts with an impressive heritage. The north of the country shares many cultural similarities with Central Europe, whilst its coastline feels closer to the Mediterranean. It is a popular destination for holidaymakers looking for a holiday with a bit of variety. The Croatian Riviera boasts around 5,800 kilometres of beaches and coastline, including those of its 1,185 islands, which are surrounded by the blue waters of the Adriatic and offer a wide range of fun seaside activities. Explore Zagreb, the capital and cultural centre of the country, Dubrovnik, the "Pearl of the Adriatic", or Split, the commercial and cultural hub of central Dalmatia. Each of these cities has landscapes as fascinating as their history, and are just waiting to be discovered!

For several centuries, Zadar was the capital of Dalmatia. Its strategic location on the Adriatic Sea made Zadar a prized location for foreign conquerors. It has been ruled by Venetians, Austrians and Napoleons, all of whom have left their mark on the city's history, and traces of this multi-culturalism can also be found across its cuisine, language and traditions.

    The guided tour begins at the Sun Salutation, a modern art installation in the western part of the Old Town peninsula created by Nikola Bašić. It continues along the seafront promenade, where you can listen to the mystical sounds of another work by the same artist, the Sea Organ.
