Poolincluded Tips

The old town is worth visiting. Here you will discover the historic history of the city. The old town is located on a peninsula and is an atmospheric city where you can spend a whole day walking around. The city is full of cozy restaurants and bars, you will find them on a square or in the narrow alleys. When you are in the old town, the sea organ is worth a visit, the waves of the sea make the sea organ make music. Also at the sea organ you have a large dance floor that works on solar energy, this is also called “Greeting to the sun”, by the waves at the sea organ there is a unique light show to see. A tip! Go here for the sunset, some people swear that here you can experience the most beautiful sunset in the world.

In front of Zadar there are several islands that are also worth visiting. For example the Kornati islands where you have beautiful beaches and clear blue water. In the city you have several boat cruises, here you go in one day along the various islands and you can enjoy the unspoiled nature. You can also rent a boat in the harbor and go on this trip, however, you need a license for this.

When you are on vacation in this region, a visit to the Plitvice lakes national park is definitely worthwhile. From Zadar it is a 2 hour drive, but if you prefer to go a little closer? Then you could also pay a visit to national park Krka, this is about 1 hour drive from Zadar. In both parks you will encounter beautiful nature and you will see many waterfalls. Here you can explore the entire park on footpaths and enjoy nature. The Plitvice lakes national park is a lot bigger than the Krka national park, so if you have any doubts, we would recommend going to the Plitvice lakes!

Culinary Tour through Zadar

Zadar is a port city and is known for their various seafood dishes such as; grilled fish, risotto with seafood, fish stew, different types of shrimp and mussels. On the island of Pag, the best cheese in all of Croatia is made, the Paški sir (Pag cheese). This cheese is made from sheep’s milk, the sheep walk on the island of Pag. What makes the cheese so special is because of the wind, a cool, strong dry wind from the south carries salt. This salt remains on the island and mixes with the grass, among other things. This makes the island of Pag white and salty. Because the sheep graze here, they get this salt back and this gives the cheese a unique flavor.
