WE ARE GOING TO TAKE YOU TO THE LARGEST CITY OF NORTHERN DALMATIA, AND ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR TOURIST DESTINATIONS - THE CITY OF ZADAR, WHO WAS IN JULY 2017 ADDED TO THE UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE LIST! THIS BEAUTIFUL CROATIAN TOWN WITH A 3000 YEAR HISTORY AND RICH CULTURAL HERITAGE IS AN IDEAL PLACE FOR TOURING AND SIGHTSEEING.
 
The visit begins by visiting urban installation Greeting to the Sun made by an architect Nikola Bašić, where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset. In 1964 Alfred Hitchcock named Zadar the place with the most beautiful sunset in the world. The names and numbers carved on the ring surrounding the installation are part of the calendar of St. Krševan, made in Zadar. This calendar dates back from 1292, and is among the oldest documents of its kind and possibly the first to have astronomy data written in Arabic numerals.
Not far is another installation by the same architect - the Sea Organ. The system is ideal for relaxation as it combines architecture and music; the sound is produced by nature aided by the tides. The instrument has seven clusters of five assorted tones derived from the matrix of Dalmatian a capella singing. As the energy of the sea is unpredictable in countless modifications of tide, size, strength and direction, so the eternal sea organ concert is unique in countless musical variations.
 
After we will have visited these contemporary architectural wonders, we will go back to past, namely the Middle Ages, to visit the Church of St. Frane; the oldest Dalmatian church built in the Gothic style. The sacristy is important for Croatian history because on February 18, 1358 the Peace Treaty of Zadar was signed, by which the Venetians renounced their pretensions to Dalmatia. Our medieval walk will then be continued to the St. Anastasia Cathedral, a three-nave Romanesque building, which is also the largest church in Dalmatia.
 
Then we go to Roman times; we visit Zadar Forum, the main square during the Roman times which was the centre of all activity at the time. There you can see The Archbishop’s Palace and St. Donat’s church a
unique building in Europe which dates back to the 9th century, and is the most famous monument and symbol of the city.
Across the street, inside the building of of St. Mary’s church and its convent, we will visit the permanent exhibition of church art, and one of the most valuable exhibitions in Croatia, popularly called the Gold and Silver of Zadar. We will continue our visit by walking towards Zadar city gates. Land Gates were built in 1543, in the shape of a triumphal arch with three doors. The gates served as the main entrance to the city of Zadar.
 
Then we will go to the Five Wells Square, which was created in 1574 in the time of the defence from the Turkish siege. In addition, we will visit the Rector’s Palace and the Church of St. Šime. Passing the waterfront, the centre of social life in Zadar from the Renaissance to the present day, our visit ends with a trip to the city market where you can buy and taste local produce.
