Zadar

— 2 nights
Situated along the Adriatic Sea, Zadar preserves a medieval old town that is entirely contained on a peninsula.
Get outdoors at Vransko Jezero Nature Park and Modric Cave. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Waterskiing & Jetskiing and Bell Tower. Change things up with these side-trips from Zadar: Velebit Nature Park (in Gospic), Memorial Center of Nikola Tesla (in Smiljan) and Jadro Beach (in Vir). There's much more to do: see Buggy Croatia, steep yourself in history at Church of St. Donat, admire the sheer force of Skradinski Buk Waterfall, and don't miss a visit to Sea Organ (Morske Orgulje).

To see more things to do, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Zadar trip planner.

Zadar County travel guide

Landmarks · Beaches · Ruins
Noted for its clean sea and unspoiled nature, Zadar County lies in the middle of Croatia's Adriatic coast. The county's main attractions focus around its hundreds of inhabited and abandoned islets shaded by pines, which parallel the karst barren land. Many visitors discover the concealed beauty of the islands by walking, hiking, or cycling amidst a backdrop of forests, lakes, waterfalls, olive groves and vineyards. With over 3,000 berths in marinas, small ports, and hidden coves, the region is a paradise for nautical tourism. Sailing along the cypress-covered islands dotted with fishing villages and stone lighthouses tops the list of things to do. Town taverns here offer great seafood dishes and premium wines.
