The area is now easily accessible with Ryanair flights from Edinburgh, Stansted, Dusseldorf, Pisa and Stockholm. Zadar would be ideal for a city break. or as a base from which to explore the surrounding area,

Zadar city lies on the Adriatic coast coastal and has plenty of cafes, restaurants and nightlife. The promenade in Zadar has a couple of amazing modern installations. The sea organ, which is powered by waves, and The Greeting to the Sun which contains three hundred multi layered glass solar panels that provide a multi coloured light show after dark.

It’s easy to reach the nearby islands on a day trip from the city.

I really enjoyed my visit to the Zadar area, the seafood was wonderful, the prices reasonable, as Croatia has not adopted the Euro, the coastline and island are beautiful and there was a lot to do and see.
