Zadar Airport

Airport Car Rental

Although perhaps not as well known as Dubrovnik or Split, the coastal city of Zadar is one of Croatia’s loveliest tourist destinations. Combining splendid beaches with historical charm, it has all the right ingredients for an enjoyable vacation. These are seven of its most interesting attractions:

  • Zadar Old Town. The old town of Zadar is a fascinating blend of ancient history and modern life. Here, well-preserved Roman ruins, medieval churches and lively cafes line the cobblestone streets. With its enchanting atmosphere and breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea from the waterfront, the Old Town of Zadar is a must-see destination for travelers exploring the Croatian coast.
  • Sea Organ. The Sea Organ in Zadar, built in 2005, is a remarkable musical instrument and architectural marvel designed by architect Nikola Bašić. Located under marble steps along the city's waterfront, this innovative structure consists of 35 pipes of varying lengths and diameters. As the sea waves wash over these pipes, they create enchanting and often hauntingly beautiful harmonies that change with the tides.
  • The Greeting to the Sun. The Greeting to the Sun in Zadar is a mesmerizing solar-powered installation designed by the same architect, Nikola Bašić, who created the Sea Organ. This circular work of art is composed of 300 multi-layered glass panels and solar panels that collect solar energy during the day and create a stunning light display at night. It is a captivating and eco-friendly way to enjoy the beauty of Zadar's sunsets.
  • Roman Forum. The Roman Forum in the old town of Zadar is a fascinating archaeological site that offers a glimpse into the rich history of this Croatian city. Built between the 1st and 3rd centuries BC, this well-preserved forum showcases the architectural and historical significance of the Roman period, making it a must-see destination for history buffs and travelers looking to explore the cultural heritage of Zadar.
  • Churches. A predominantly Catholic country, Croatia is home to many stunning churches, with a good number of them located in Zadar. The unique Church of St. Donatus, dating back to the 9th century, is arguably the pick of the bunch, but the eclectic Cathedral of St. Anastasia and St. Mercy Church and Monastery are also not to be overlooked.
  • Archaeological Museum. Strategically located on the Adriatic coast, Zadar has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Providing a glimpse into this fabled past, the city’s Archaeological Museum provides a decent collection of exhibits and artifacts spanning several millennia. If you like this place, you’re also likely to enjoy the Museum of Ancient Glass which can also be found in the city.
  • Šibenik. Small and quaint, but also home to a fascinating history, the town of Šibenik is one of the most visited places in the area. Located about an hour’s drive down the coast, it is known for architectural gems like the Cathedral of St. Jakov and several palaces, as well as, naturally, beaches.

Rented a car at Zadar airport and did a roadtrip down to Dubrovnik and back. The best spot was Ston, a small town with great seafood (good price too) and an amazing wall built on the mountain that you can see from the town.

Picked up car from Zadar and drove to Spit (2 hour drive) on A1. Scenery was amazing and driving easy. After a few days drove from Split to Rijeka (4 hour drive), once again amazing scenery and driving easy using well built modern highway. A real pleasure to drive in Croatia.
