Zadar is the oldest continually-inhabited city in Croatia. Located on the Adriatic Sea in the northwestern area of the Ravni Kotari region, Zadar will delight you with its plethora of Roman ruins, white sand beaches, and exciting museums.

For a taste of Zadar's history, visit the church of St. Donatus to view one of the most noteworthy examples of Byzantine architecture. Zadar Cathedral is another must, and you can even climb the bell tower for stunning views across the city.

Zadar is also home to several exciting art installations that celebrate the city's natural setting. The Sea Organ, built in 2005, is one of the must-see attractions in the city; the sea's waves generate music through a series of underwater tubes. Greeting to the Sun is another major installation, where 300 multi-layered glass plates and solar panels light up as the sun sets, depicting the solar system in the form of a circle.

Zadar Airport connects the city to many international destinations, with frequent flights daily. For travel by road, choose one of the many bus carriers with service from various destinations around Europe, including Autotrans and FlixBus, among others.

Zagreb is the capital and largest city of Croatia. Although often overlooked as a travel destination, Zagreb is the center of Croatia's art, culture, academic, and sports scene, providing visitors with much to explore. Plus, it’s one of the cheapest capitals to visit in Central Europe!

Zagreb is divided into three areas: Gornji grad (upper town), which is over 1000 years old and hosts the Presidential palace as well as St Mark's Church; the Donji grad (lower town), home to 19th-century architecture, shops, theatres, cafes, and parks; and the Novi Zagreb (New Zagreb), which was developed post-World War II and is the main residential and business area of the city.

In what is known as the "city of museums," there is no shortage of fascinating places to shelter from the midday heat. The Museum of Broken Relationships is a unique but heartrending museum dedicated to lost love and the real stories of heartbreak. The Museum of Illusions offers a more lighthearted but equally compelling experience, with many deceiving and confusing exhibits on show.

Zagreb is well-connected to many other European cities and destinations throughout the continent. About 15 kilometers from the city center, Zagreb International Airport provides many national and international flight routes, and Zagreb Central Station is a major railway hub. Several bus companies depart Zagreb daily for cities like Dubrovnik, Split, Vienna, and Berlin.
