The largest city in the region boasts with the title of 2016 European Destination. Zadar is not only a tourist destination but one of the main arteries of the Dalmatian coast.
A special characteristic of the city is its millennial, urban existence, making it one of the oldest cities in the wider Adriatic area. Its long history is witnessed by numerous cultural and historical monuments, each of which tells the story of a certain time period.
The Old Town is situated on a peninsula and is surrounded by ramparts that are part of UNESCO’s World Heritage Site. Inside the walls are rows of charming streets interspersed with squares and medieval churches.
Equally interesting are the contemporary artistic and cultural monuments that have become the trademark of the city. Located on the boardwalk, the seafront promenade, visitors can enjoy the fusion of human creativity and nature. The Sea Organ plays melodies all day long, and the ideal time to visit is at sunset, declared by the famous American director Alfred Hitchcock to be the most beautiful in the world. Next to the Sea Organ is the Greeting to the Sun, a light installation that is best visited during the evening hours.
