Zadar is the main city in North Dalmatia, with about 75,000 inhabitants. Most famous for its Old Town, set in a peninsula that is completely pedestrianised, the town has numerous Roman and other wonderful sights, some of which are rather modern.
UNESCO's World Heritage Site list included the fortified city of Zadar as part of Venetian Works of Defence between 15th and 17th centuries.
The approximate flight time to Zadar is 2 hours and 35 minutes.
With a Mediterranean climate, you can expect warm dry summers and calm mild winters. In summer there is almost no or little rain. However in autumn, winter and spring it rains more regularly. October and November are the wettest months, with a total precipitation of around 110 mm each month (4.45 in). July and August are the hottest months, with an average high temperature around 30 degrees Celsius (86 °Fahrenheit).
With its Roman ruins, art installations, and white-sand beach, Zadar is one of the most unique resorts along Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, where in-the-know travellers come to feast on seafood, watch dreamy sunsets, and sip cocktails at oceanside bars.
Prefer Roman, Byzantine or Venetian architecture? Zadar has prominent examples of each, from the Venetian tower and wells of Trg Pet Bunara to the columns of the Roman forum, which dates back to 1BC, to the impressive walls and city gates that helped make it once the largest city fortress in the Republic of Venice. Inside Zadar’s ancient walls are a bevy of great fish restaurants, with prices comparing favourably with those further down the coast.
