Zadar, Dalmatia, Croatia

Some of the most beautiful cities are located at Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast. Besides Dubrovnik, we visited the following- all of them were more or less crowded!

Zadar

A small but great Croatian city. This was our starting point of our trip and is located in the northern Dalmatia.

The Old Town of Zadar is very beautiful. You’ll love spending time here.

The actual main attraction for us was the perfect sunset and the sea organ. You definitely have to listen to it at least once. Thanks to the strong wind, it was perfectly loud to hear. The rest of the night, we had to deal with the catchy sound of the sea organ.

Split

The second biggest city of Croatia is known as a party town to young people worldwide. As we just explored the Old Town inside the walls of Split, we can confirm a high amount of bars in some places.

Like many other places in Croatia, Split belongs to the UNESCO world heritage. Around lunchtime, the city was a bit overcrowded due to a few cruise liners.

Split is especially famous for its Diocletian’s palace and the Campanile of cathedral Sveti Duje, which you can easily spot from far away.

If you decide to stay for a few days, you should make a day trip to Trogir with its fantastic Old Town (also UNESCO world heritage- this country is full of UNESCO places)! You see, if we had had more time, there would have been more on our bucket list!

Drinks are relatively cheap except the area around the port. But restaurants are expensive. There are a few small supermarkets, where you’ll get good value for your money. That’s what usually young people like us did – well, those who don’t have much money! 😀 If you’re patient, you might also find low priced restaurants.

Sukošan

Sukosan, Dalmatia, Croatia

We found this small village by accident on our way back to the airport. We were lead by hunger. It’s located southeaster of Zadar. The restaurant, we were eating was cheap and the dishes yummy! Despite of some people at the beacht, nothing happened in this empty village.

The tiny old town of this village can be easily explored by foot and in a short time. It has a little church (Church of the holy Madonna) built in 17th century and the St. Kassian’s church.

We couldn’t find out what this broken formation in the sea is. Doesn’t matter as long as it is good looking on pictures.

We will definitely come back to Croatia and these were for sure not the last cities we’ve seen here.
