Almost entirely surrounded by the warm waters of the Adriatic, the peninsula that is Zadar city centre, along with the 'mainland’ area, may not be large, but it is bursting with personality. A thoroughly cosmopolitan space, it is full of rich architecture despite its turbulent past, and offers some of the best sailing around the Zadar archipelago and along the western coast of Croatia’s Dalmatia region. Its sunsets are legendary too, making it the perfect place to unwind for romantics, young and old. The nearby town of Biograd na Moru is a well-known tourist and particularly nautical centre. The city has grown to a size suitable for living, surrounded by modern marinas and a waterfront from which an unforgettable view extends over one of the most picturesque channels – the Pašman Channel with scattered islets.
