Quickly gaining attention on the international travel scene, the ‘sunset’ city of Zadar is vibrant and attractive, with a unique personality. An exceptional combination of ancient and contemporary side by side, much of the city’s character derives from its complex and turbulent past. Roman ruins sit quietly next to a modern cafe, Romanesque and Gothic churches jostle with modern art in the streets, and a striking waterfront promenade houses two modern installations. Perched right on the coast, with a well-preserved ancient past, and lively arts, music and culture, this north Dalmatian town rightfully enjoys the reputation of an up-and-coming European star.
