Zadar is today a city of extraordinary cultural heritage and of 3000 years of history. It is located in the very centre of the Eastern part of the Adriatic coast.

It is surrounded by the islands of the Zadar archipelago towards the sea, and by Ravni Kotari at the back.
The oldest part of the city is located on a peninsula surrounded by historic walls which were used for defense against numerous conquerors. The old part of the city within those walls is the most important and most interesting part of the city. Visit Forum and Fosha.
