The 7 Best Things To Do In Zadar:
1. The Sea Organs
Its compelling and soothing sound will erase all problems in your head and take you to another dimension. As your body will be taken over by its sound, your eyes will be amazed by the stunning sunset whose attractiveness cannot be praised enough. Its mixture of colours and atmosphere will create your own heaven which you will not want to leave.

In our wish not to make you leave our little piece of heaven, we will offer you an extension of this beautiful feeling. As the sun will slowly go down, your mind will crave for more. Just turn your head to the right and you will again find yourself in something unimaginable.
The explosion of lights and colours derived from sun’s energy will be available to you in the form of Zadar’s well-known Greeting to the Sun. Its glass surface will change its colours from time to time and thus, make you feel like you are dreaming. Feel free to dance, jump or even lay down on this incredible surface. Of course, do not forget to take pictures to remind yourself that this amazing dream was an actual event.
3. St. Donat’s Church
Your ears will appreciate the treatment they are being given and your mind will get lost in its design. Its rounded interior is an excellent example of Byzantine church architecture, so if you are an architecture lover this may serve as an inspiration for your next design. Let’s not forget its outdoor windows whose frames are shaped differently in order to produce different shadows when sun goes through them. In this summer rhythm let’s move to Zadar’s famous meeting point.
4. People’s Square
People’s Square is Zadar’s largest square and centre of the city. Sink into Croatian’s authentic music played in local bar Lovre and treat your taste buds with some tasty coffee.
As you are regaining your energy, look around yourself to absorb town’s energy and atmosphere. You will become aware that this meeting point serves as the town’s most genuine reflection. Diversity of people and their motion will make you feel like you are in the movie.
5. Restaurant Foša & Foša Land Gate
Your energy is back and your mind is freed but it seems to me like I hear the sound of hunger from your stomach. Do not worry, I also have something up my sleeve for that. Stand up from your comfy chairs and let’s go to Zadar’s scrumptious restaurant Foša.
This restaurant offers extremely tasty and luscious food. Each of you will find something that will satisfy your hunger. But before you step into this restaurant, make yourself feel like a king or queen and walk yourself through famous Foša Land Gate. This gate, made by Venetians, dates back to the 16th century. It served as the main entry in the city and what makes it so spectacular is the statute of a lion positioned at the top of the gate.
6. Kolovare Beach
Now that you are fed and well-rested take a short walk and you will have the perfect end of your incredible dream at Kolovare beach. The town’s most famous and longest beach offers its visitors an area of meditation backed by the sound of waves. Take your shoes off and give your feet a well-deserved massage.
If you feel more adventurous, take part in activities such as volleyball, soccer, water polo or even try to ride water bikes. This beach offers anything you want so be nice and put it on your traveling list.
7. The National Park Kornati
However, as famous commercials say that’s not all folks. If you still have time and energy to wander around, I definitely recommend stunning National Park Kornati. Your fairy tale will begin here. They are situated in the central part of the Croatian Adriatic. Their natural beauty and crystal water will stop your heart for a second. Let your mind be blown by this unaffected park which consists of 89 islands. Explore its lavish nature and beaches by taking part in different activities such as swimming, diving and snorkeling.
Don’t wait any longer, take a dreamy tour in Zadar boat trips and visit Kornati national park. I guarantee that you won’t feel disappointed.
