With the intense blue of sea, the lush deep greens of pine and olive groves and the pure white of Dalmatia stone, this region of Zadar is extraordinary and unique in the world. Zadar faces the islands of Ugljan and Pašman, from which it is separated by the narrow Zadar Strait. The promontory on which the old city stands used to be separated from the mainland by a deep moat which has since been filled. The harbour, to the north-east of the town, is safe and spacious.

Where pearls are easy to find

In the north, on the vivid white cliffs underneath the Velebit mountain, where the view of the surreallandscape of Croatia’s most indented island, Pag, stretches before you. Pag offers beautiful coves and beaches with unspoiled nature, as well as centres of modern tourism. Island Pag is very famous, as well as Pag cheese, and its secret ingredients, the wind “bura” and salt which give it a specific and recognisable flavour. Zadar is a 3000 years old town, whose fortifications have been inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Here you can find “Sea organ” built with 35 pipes with whistles that play 7 accords of 5 tones. High tide and low tide during the day create unique music and unique experience that attracts lots of people and the other is installation “greeting to the Sun.” Also, there are 300 glass panels, an installation that creates beautiful lights effects in the rhythm of the waves and sounds of Sea organ when the Sun goes down.

Zadar has the most beautiful sunset in the world, more beautiful than the one in Key West, in Florida, applauded at every evening.
