(3.7/5 based on 7,500+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, sightseeing, nature
Situated along the Adriatic Sea, Zadar preserves a medieval old town that is entirely contained on a peninsula. Its historical district harbors ancient Roman ruins, churches dating back to the Middle Ages, museums, and plenty of lively cafes. Though it may not be as scenic as some of its other coastal counterparts, Zadar is full of character and offers the advantage of fewer tourist crowds. In addition to being a vibrant city, it is also a great base for ferry and bus tours to other coastal destinations and Italy. Use our Croatia vacation generator to arrange your visit to Zadar and any other destinations in Croatia that take your fancy.

Where to stay

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.
