Zadar is both a peaceful community and a dynamic modern center that greets everyone with open arms. It houses many stories as a grand Roman city, located in the northern part of the Byzantine Empire. You can explore the walls of the Venetian strongholds and see in person where Croatian Kings laid the foundations of Croatian sovereignty

OUTDOOR EXPERIENCES IN ZADAR

The Zadar region offers possibilities for rock climbing, caving, sea or river water sports, hiking, diving and much more. One of Zadar’s popular festivals is the  Zadar Outdoor festival. If you wish to push your limits, discover your hidden talents, experience the fun of teamwork or create an unforgettable story for your loved ones, you’ll find yourself in the right place. 

Two Zadar must-sees are The Sea Organ and Greeting to the Sun. The Sea Organ is a sound-art experimental musical instrument that creates magical chimed tunes using only the rolling power of sea waves. 

Right next to the Sea Organ you can step onto the Greeting to the Sun — a giant, solar-powered public dancefloor, symbolizing the communication between man and nature. It consists of solar panels that form a massive circle, where the panels absorb sun rays during the day and transform their energy into electricity.

Cycling enthusiasts can also take part in the  3. GRANFONDO FALKENSTEINER BORIK race in October.
 
“Zadar has the most beautiful sunset in the world, more beautiful than the one in Key West in Florida, applauded every evening.” - Alfred Hitchcock, during his visit to Zadar in May 1964. 
 

So, are you ready for Zadar? We look forward to welcoming you!

 


Excursion to Krka National park
 
   

Among the many spectacular natural sights in Croatia, you should not miss the Krka National Park. It is named after the Krka River, which forms the central part of the park, and is known for its large number of lakes and waterfalls. Its 7 travertine waterfalls represent a natural karst phenomenon, formed from the dissolution of soluble rocks, and call for relaxation and refreshment in pristine clean water.

You can also find the Jaruga hydroelectric power plant under the Skradinski Buk waterfall — the second oldest hydroelectric power plant in the world and the first in Europe. A walk through the lush greenery surrounding the water and its accompanying views will be sure to re-energise you.
