Zadar

— 5 nights
Situated along the Adriatic Sea, Zadar preserves a medieval old town that is entirely contained on a peninsula.
Get some historical perspective at Historic City of Trogir and Old Split. Museum-lovers will get to explore Froggyland and Permanent Exhibition of Religion Art. Change things up with these side-trips from Zadar: Muzej betinske drvene brodogradnje (in Betina) and Split (Split Synagogue, Grgur Ninski Statue, &more). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Sea Organ (Morske Orgulje), zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, contemplate the long history of Church of St. Donat, and delve into the distant past at Zadar Land City Gates.
