Dalmatia Zadar

The attractive Zadar region has three distinct areas - mountain, coastal and island. The mountain part covers the southern part of Velebit and Paklenica National Park. On the other side of the Velebit Mountains, in a small part of Lika that belongs to Zadar, there are what many consider to be the most beautiful caves - Cerovačka spilja.

The coastal and island part with over 300 islands is a treasury of natural and cultural heritage. The historical centre of the county with a long tradition of 3000 years is formed by the city of Zadar, surrounded by a beautiful series of islands - Rab, Pašman, Ugljan, Dugi Otok...
