About the Homestay
You couldn't have a better location in Zadar. The flat is right next to city centre and historical part of the City. Restaurants, shops, beaches and main tourist attractions. Everything is within the walking distance from the flat. There is one bedroom, one bathroom and spacious living room with a kitchen, The flat is ideal for a couple wishing to spend a few days or weeks in Zadar.
Guests will rent the entire apartment for themselves. Therefore they will have Access to all the house facilities (kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room. FREE WIFI and FREE PARKING.
Sightseeing and Walking around Zadar's historic centre can make your day. If there is a breeze, start at the sea organ, an art installation consisting of a series of pipes cut into the promenade. Soft, meditative chords become a slightly alarming cacophony of groans when the waves are choppy. The same artist also created the Monument to the Sun, a large disc of solar-powered cells that becomes a multicoloured disco ball as the sun sets.
More classical sights include the Roman forum, of which only a few columns and an altar remain. Stones from here were used to build the neighbouring rotunda of 9th-century St Donat's Church and are clearly visible.
Zadar's 12th-century cathedral has three beautiful portals that would not look out of place in Tuscany, and a bell-tower to climb. Close to an impressive city gate, the church of St Simeon contains a beautifully crafted silver reliquary. More can be seen in the excellent Gold and Silver of Zadar exhibition at St Mary's church.
For a memorable experience, take a short trip with the gnarled boatmen who have been rowing residents across the harbour for more than 800 years. The women at the town market look like they may have been selling their salty, speciality Pag cheese for almost as long.
In the old town, where you can pick up a two-course meal with wine for about £16 a head. Stomorica (Stomorica 12, 00385 23 31 59 46) serves simple grilled fish. Nearby, Dva Ribara (Blaza Jurjeva 1, 00385 23 21 34 45) has modern décor, plates of fried squid and air-conditioning. For something lighter, The Arsenal (Trg tri Bunara, 00385 23 253 820, www.arsenalzadar.com) once housed supplies for Venetian military ships but now has a café, art galleries and shops.
Spend the afternoon...
Swimming and walking in Krka National Park, just over an hour's drive away. Visitors enter by taking a short cruise up the emerald Krka river, through a pine-cloaked limestone gorge, to Skradinski Buk. A gorgeous swimming area is roped off at a bend in the river below the crescent of waterfalls. Before stripping off, take the shaded one-mile walk past a chain of tumbling pools to spot fish and sapphire dragonflies.
At one of Zadar's unpretentious fish restaurants. Hotel Niko (as before) has a smart, family-run place with a good range of shellfish and fresh fish cooked traditionally. In the old town, with harbour views, Kornat (Liburnska Obala 6, 00385 023 254 501) has a wider menu that includes handmade pasta in lamb sauce and beef tagliata. Fosa (Kralja Dmitra Zvonimira 2, 00385 23 31 44 21, www.fosa.hr) offers the most modern cooking, a wide choice of raw fish carpaccio and a romantic setting at the end of a small harbour. Expect to pay about £25 a head, including wine.
