Hotels in Zadar
With an enticing mix of preserved ancient ruins, restored medieval landmarks, and a bustling, increasingly cosmopolitan nightlife scene, Zadar an ideal choice for culture seekers looking for exotic scenery, historic treasures, and accommodation that is much more affordable than many other Mediterranean resorts. Furthermore, because this city is not as well known as Dubrovnik, it is not nearly as busy during the main holiday season, and, consequently retains its authentic Croatian charm.
Originally a basilica built during the Roman Empire, Zadar Cathedral is a prominent Romanesque church that was completed in the 13th century, following extensive damage after sieges by the Crusaders and the Venetians in the previous century. Officially known as St Anastasia's Cathedral, the tower offers fantastic views of the city, and the portal is noted for its elaborate rosettes.
St Donatus' Church
Another formidable sight, more than 1,000 years old, St Donatus' Church is a classic example of Carolingian-style architecture, although it was originally named the Holy Trinity Church. The building is now the venue of the International Festival of Medieval Renaissance Music, and is no longer used for religious worship.
The island of Ošljak
Just off the shore is the pictorial island of Ošljak, which is relatively untouched by high-scale tourism and has been inhabited for approximately three millennia. The island, which is overlooked by the ancient Church of St Mary, is just one of more than 1,200 islands off the Croatian coast, and the least inhabited.
Other places of interest
See the impressive Monastery of St Francis Assisi, which was built in the 13th century and is the oldest Gothic-style Dalmatian church in existence. Another fascinating sight is the ruined Roman Forum, which is more than 90m wide and was completed more than 1,800 years ago. If you have the time, visit the Museum of Ancient Glass, which is the largest Roman glassware exhibition outside of Italy and is in the majestic 19th-century Cosmacendi House.
