    Modern meets traditional in Zadar

    Surrounded by imposing 16th-century walls, Zadar has a historic feel, with narrow cobblestone streets full of charming shops and cafes. However, Zadar also has a modern side, and is fast becoming a cultural and artistic destination, full of modern art and exciting new museums. Stay in a Zadar holiday rental and you can explore both sides of the city, as well as enjoying the sandy beaches that overlook the Adriatic Sea. Zadar is the site of a number of festivals during the summer, from electronica to contemporary dance, with the sea views and sunsets making for the perfect backdrop.

    Discover the sound of the sea in Zadar

    At first glance, the Sea Organ looks like steps leading into the clear blue sea. However, as you get closer, you'll hear an ethereal sound that's made whenever the waves hit the organ. This unique installation stretches for 70 metres along the coast, and as you sit on the marble steps you can enjoy the sea spray and listen to the soothing sounds of nature. It's a particularly great spot to watch the sunset at night, and you're just steps away from The Greeting to the Sun, a large circular light installation that's activated by your footsteps, making colourful patterns in the dark.

    Walk around the city walls of Zadar

    Zadar City Gate protected the city from invading Turks, and today the imposing walls still stand guard. Built in limestone with intricate carvings and sculptures, these well-preserved walls can be followed around the outskirts of Zadar. Book a Zadar holiday rental and you'll have plenty of time to explore the old town, whether it's the fun Muzej iluzija, which is full of optical illusions and unique selfie opportunities, or the National Museum Zadar which combines natural history, Croatian art, and historic artefacts telling you the story of the city.

    Coastal exploration and island hopping from Zadar

    Zadar is set on a long stretch of coastline overlooking the turquoise blue sea. Prosika Pag is the main city beach, with lots of golden sands making it a popular spot for Zadar holiday rentals. Surrounded by cliffs, you can walk along the coast discovering unspoilt spots such as Uljak, which has tiny sandy coves and clear shallow waters to explore. You can also take boat tours to surrounding islands, such as those in the National Park Kornati. Full of uninhabited islands, you can find your own beach paradise, or hike through untouched forests.
