Hello everyone! As I mentioned in our last Travel post here it is more about Zadar, starting off with its magnificent sunset, then a walk through the old town and its beautiful harbour. There are a lot of things to do and many excursions you can organize from there.
Some of the city’s highlights include: The Roman ruins from its days as a Roman colony, St Donat church in a Byzantine style which dates from the 9th century, Cathedral of St Anastasia completed in the 13th century, the Franciscan Monastery and Church, the oldest Gothic church in Dalmatia, St Simeon Church with an intricately carved gold-plated sarcophagus, the sea organ that transforms waves into mournful melodies, not forgetting to mention the sun salutation a circle of glass that captures the daylight and emits it at night.
Zadar is really well located, it lies within driving distance of four national parks: Plitvice Lakes, Krka Waterfalls, Paklenica and Northern Velebit. You can also find boat excursions to the Kornati Islands National Park. The city at night has a lot to offer too, from amazing restaurants to after dinner cocktails, all in the old town!
If you missed our last travel post, you can catch it up on more photos here. Hope you are all having a great week so far 😉
