Adriatic charm of Zadar region

Adriatic charm of the Zadar region

What is it about the Zadar region that makes you want to experience it once? Then once more, and over and over again. It’s the charm, beauty and treats for the senses, it’s that special something that makes it unique and recognizable. 

Dalmatian charm

Oh, that irresistible allure of the Zadar region! Situated in northern Dalmatia, it has a distinctive charm. Charm that is found in the narrow cobbled streets of historical towns and villages, in the stories written in the times long past. Charm that can be sensed while breathing in the fresh air with a fragrance of pine trees and Mediterranean greenery, and listening to the rhythmic sound of the sea along the promenade.

It can also be felt in the laid-back lifestyle of the local people, taking it easy and savouring the moment. A way of life Dalmatians don’t mind sharing as they welcome their visitors with open arms.

Beautiful beaches and clear blue sea

Your piece of paradise by the sea awaits in the Zadar region! The transparent sea without large waves, allows you to fully enjoy various water joys – sailing, swimming, snorkelling, doing water sports, playing in the shallows or just floating on a colourful inflatable.

Pebbly, sandy or rocky, the beaches here are well known for their natural beauty. Apart from breathtaking shades of blue sea, they often have plenty of lovely Mediterranean greenery offering shade on land. One such fine example is the pebbly beach with pine trees right next to the Hotel Pinija in Petrčane.

Excellent food & wine

Cheers to lovely culinary experiences!  Known as one of the healthiest in the world, Dalmatian cuisine offers you fish and meat specialties beautifully matched with side dishes, made with locally sourced ingredients and a few drops of native olive oil. But it’s more than delighting in top quality dishes. It’s also about the art of enjoying life, taking a moment to savor the fine flavors perfectly complemented with native wine, such as produced at Kraljevski vinogradi in Petrčane.
