Zadar, Croatia is an incredible place; the culture and Croatian charm that is characterized through the entirety of the city is untouchable to any other place I’ve been.
Here’s 7 things do in Zadar, Croatia:
1. Walk Around Old Town Zadar
The white-washed churches, marbled streets and aesthetically-charming buildings are iconic to Croatian culture.
2. Dance on The Greeting to the Sun
At the end of the boardwalk is this massive solar-powered dance floor that changes colors and vividly lights up the night.
3. Wallow in the Cuisine
Since Zadar is settled on the Adriatic Sea, they’re known for their seafood delicacies.
The tuna pate that was given as an appetizer for every meal was always fresh and delectable.
This homemade Croatian gnocci was to die for!
Since I’m allergic to shellfish I can’t indulge in all seafood but my husband adores it. He ordered the Seafood Platter at a restaurant and raved about it for hours!
4. Walk the Boardwalk and Soak in the Sunsets
Zadar has some of the most beautiful sunsets that illuminate the Adriatic waters. The boardwalk that hugs the sea gives a perfect front-row seat for those dreamy transformations of day turning into night. Don’t forget to check out the Sea Organ too!
5. Visit Nin’s Lagoon
Since the beaches in Zadar are pebbled, we took about a half hour drive to Nin, where we found a sandy lagoon. We came here for 2 of our 4 beach days and just basked in everything it had to offer.
You can walk hundreds of yards out into the water and still be knee-deep, which makes for some great shallow snorkeling.
Over the bend, on the opposite side of the water, is a natural mud spa that legends say can miraculously heal any ailments.
6. Indulge in Croatian Ice Cream
Around every corner of Zadar are ice cream parlors with their specialties on display to tempt you.
7. Take a Day Trip to Plitvice
Without a doubt, my favorite part of our Croatian vacation was Plitvice Lakes National Park.
This UNESCO Heritage Site has the most pristine waters and looks like something straight out of a fairytale. Read about my visit to Plitvice here.
