For sure Zadar is a young but very cute Croatia charter destination. Even though smaller and less known to tourists, then Split or Dubrovnik, Zadar is becoming a very popular destination for the guests sailing by boat in Croatia. The city is big enough for you to find favorite beach bar, do some shopping on the main street (called Kalelarga), explore historical sights (the Forum, People’s Square, st Donat church, cathedral, Foša) and yet small enough to be able to walk on foot all around it.
Exploring its surroundings is a must when visiting the aria as 3 National Parks are situated close by – Krka, Paklenica and Kornati. However, before exploring elsewhere – you should pay a visit to Zadar’s own original attractions: The Sea organ that make music as waves clash along the shoreline and the Greeting to the sun which basically is a big round disco floor that lights up at night and celebrates the setting of the sun in an unforgettable way. During his visit to Zadar, Alfred Hitchcock famously declared the sunsets in Zadar to be the best in the world. So as the light begins to fade, follow the crowds that gather down on the Riva in front of the sculpture “Greeting to the sun” and decide yourself if the story of sunset is really true.
