The Zadar region occupies the central area of the Adriatic Sea in the south of the Republic of Croatia. Through the turbulent history, Zadar has developed thanks to the excellent natural positioning and naturally protected port. Today Zadar is one of the more beautiful and important towns of Dalmatia. The city, located on the Adriatic highway – and therefore retaining the attributes of an important transit point – as well as sharing its boundaries with three of Croatia’s national parks (Paklenica, Velebit and Kornati), is the economic and cultural centre of this part of Central Dalmatia.
The wonderful and varied vegetation and mild climate further enhanced the area’s development as a prime tourist destination. The Zadar area is a well developed tourist region with some 50 settlements and extending across more than 1200 km of coastline, off which are about 150 islands, isles and reefs, countless coves and idyllic tiny beaches amid unspoiled nature, washed by clean, crystal-clear blue seas.
This region is widely known since ancient times, and is evidenced by a number of ancient villages, Roman monuments and well-preserved medieval centers of some towns. If you decide to come, you should know that you have available a large selection of hotels and apartments as well as additional facilities that will make your ordinary vacation into a few weeks of paradise and well-being.
