One of the coolest places around, and that's according to the travel experts and bloggers, not just us!

It might be one of the lesser-known port cities but it's absolutely packed with history, in fact it's the oldest city in Croatia. The Old Town is a fascinating place to explore, and the streets are dotted with ancient Roman ruins and monuments.

Along with the sense of real history, Zadar is packed with gorgeous scenery - in particular the awesome mountains and national parks. Perfect for those who love exploring the outdoors.

For something a bit different check out the solar powered dancefloor (yes, you read that right) and visit the Zadar Sea Organ, a 70-metre long natural musical instrument which combines with the sea and wind to create a magnificent sound.
