History

Zadar has a 3000 years old history. It is situated in beautiful surroundings of islands, and its back is protected from winds from Velebit. First Zadar residents were a Liburnian tribe which came to Zadar area inthe 4th century BC. Later inthe 2nd century AD Romans come to Zadar and Zadar started becoming a town. Several times in history it changed its name to Iadera or Zara. At the beginning of the 7th century it became the capital of Dalmatia and an administrative center of Byzantium theme. During the past Venetians, Napoleon, Croatian-Hungarian kings, Austria, and Italy ruled the town. In Yugoslavia it developed in tourist and administrative center of Zadar region.

Gastronomy

It is well known that Dalmatian kitchen is easy and healthy and that you can enjoy numerous specialties and not have to think about calories. Enjoy fish specialties in many town restaurants which offer plenty of fresh or cooked vegetable with fish.

Try a portion of fine mutton which is best prepared grilled. There are also sweet water fish specialties with the fish from Vransko Lake.

You can also try prosciutto traditionally served with cheese and olives. Let's not forget Maraskino, a specialty of Zadar area. Maraskino is a liquor prepared from sour cherry type "maraška". This liquor is believed to have healing powers.

All these delicacies can be found in many Zadar restaurants, but if you're in a hurry on your way to the beach or to a party, pick up a sandwich from a sandwich bar or have a pizza in one of the pizzerias.

Sport

The Zadar region has plenty of natural beauty, but first of all we need to emphasize the wealth and identedness of the coast with 200 hidden islands and islets, bays and isthmuses which creates an opportunity for all types of maritime activities.

In Zadar archipelago there is a large number of anchorages most famous of which are those on the islands of Dugi otok, Pašman, Molat and Olib. Navigation experts like this part of the Adriatic for its mild climate and beautiful views while they sail.

Speaking of water sports, diving is here really worth trying. Clear sea, beautiful combination of colors on underwater plants and popular "cliffs" with colorful corals will convince you that you do not need to travel to Maldives to see something similar. Diving clubs in this area will give you advice and recommendations on what to visit.

Those who like mountaineering can try Velebit and National Park "Paklenica" where they can mountaineer, free climb or try their strength by driving a bicycle on one of the bike tracks.

Fun and night life

The town of Zadar has a lot to offer for people who want to go out at night, when daily entertainment on the beach and elsewhere ends. For culture lovers there is Zadar summer festival as well as musical evenings in St. Donat church. There you can listen to concerts of classical music and enrich your sea holiday.

There is also a tourist festivity "Night of the full moon", which is held in July, and a time to party until the wee hours of the morning listening to good concerts on the waterfront and throughout the town, or dancing to your favorite music. Let's not forget public festival "Days of Maraska" which lasts for several days when famous liquor Maraskino is drank in large quantities.

Those who want to party will not get disappointed. Discotheque Forum, "Arsenal" and numerous cafés on Kalelarga street are good places to have fun until the morning. Dancing, good company, cheerful atmosphere... and then go to your first morning coffee somewhere on the sun.

Island of Ugljan

Island Ugljan is one of the most picturesque islands in the Zadar archipelago. It lies opposite to Zadar from which it is divided by only the few NM of the Zadar Channel.

The island is connected to mainland with good ferry services. The Pleasant ferry ride takes 20 minutes.

Thanks to its coves, surrounding islands and a rich maritime underworld it is a real challenge for diving and fishing. The wavy high plains of the inland are covered with around for fifty kilometers of trekking and biking trails, leaving an unforgettable picture of colors, odors and panorama to all passers-by. Most of the inhabitants of the island, around 7,500. Tourist localities extend along the eastern side of the island; Kukljica, Kali, Preko, Poljana, Sutomiš?ica, Lukoran and Ugljan.

Preko is the road and the administration center of the island of Ugljan, situated, as the name states, opposite Zadar. Its old center consists of typical Dalmatian architecture and numerous patrician family summer houses.

The best way to feel the Mediterranean atmosphere is by walking along the quay or sipping a favorite drink on one of the terraces with a view of the Zadar Channel.

Only about 80 m from Preko lies the idyllic islet of Galevac (Školji?), covered with dense Mediterranean vegetation that shelters the 15th century valuable monastery of Franciscan friars of the third order. Its sandy beach makes it a popular swimming site. The nearby beach Jaz rightfully carries the blue flag – a symbol of clear sea.

The 11th century Romanesque church of St. John is situated on the eastern side of the locality, near the ferryboat landing. Preko is the closest starting point for the excursion to St. Michael's fortress (265 m above the sea level). The view from the fortress spreads over more than 200 islands of the archipelago of Zadar and Kornati National Park.
