    On this remote and secluded island of Zadar's inhabitants commute to their dachas. Tourists can go here and have a rest from city vanity, as the village. Rest here in nature, away from city noise, brings peace and calmness. true, a little nerdy, can quickly get bored.

Where to stay in Zadar

If proximity to the sights in Zadar is your priority, opt to stay in the old town, a compact area packed with historical buildings. Although this area offers few budget-friendly hotel rooms, you can choose from affordable hostels within walking distance of the city's main sights. Zadar's resort hotels tend to hug the coastline, a short drive out of the city. Book ahead if you want to stay there, or stop by the city's tourist office for a list of private rooms closer to the city center.
