Visit Zadar: Your Travel Guide

Things to Do in Zadar

Zadar Cathedral
Zadar Cathedral is a fascinating blend of architectural styles. Its origins date back to the ninth century, but it was rebuilt in the Romanesque style during the 12th century. As you gaze up at it, you can admire the rose windows, detailed façade and lovely bell tower – be sure to climb up for gorgeous city views.
Kornati National Park
In a country as gorgeous as Croatia, the competition for the prettiest places is fierce – but there’s no doubt that Kornati National Park is up there with the rest of the beauty queens. Sail past caves and cliffs, jumping in the glittering Adriatic for a bit of snorkelling or scuba diving . On land, you’ll find Roman remains and restaurants serving up delicious, freshly grilled fish.
Sea Organ
Enjoy the symphony of the sea on the beautiful Croatian coast. Designed by architect Nikola Bašić, the Sea Organ is an elaborate set of stone stairs with pipes leading into the Adriatic. As waves push air through the internal whistles, you can hear different tones matching the tide’s ebb and flow. You’d be hard-pressed to find a prettier spot to commune with nature.

The old town if Zadar is really beautiful, especially the sea organs. This is brilliant! Highly recommended to all the travelers, wanting just sit back and relax. Sitting at the white pebble stone paved seafront and listening to the sounds of waves and sea organs - priceless.

One of the best times to come to Zadar is in the spring when it is not that crowded and the weather is great.

Go not to the mainstreet. Everything else is a hit. Bruschetta!! And first of all: pet brunara.

crystal clear water, long walks beautiful views of the islands

You simple must fall in love with that town.

Kirchen, Diogletianspalast, Wasserorgel

Beautiful sunset, walks along the beach

Goto the Sea Organ, magnificent
