This morning meet your local guide at the hotel lobby for a two-hour sightseeing tour of Zadar, the town of rich cultural and historical heritage.
An ancient Illyrian foundation under the name of Iader, later an important jewel in the Venetian crown as Zara and today the centre of the region, Zadar is a town-monument with layers of history that can be revealed on every step. Centuries-old tumultuous history, numerous destructions and reconstructions have left scars but also a rich historical legacy and today's valuable monumental heritage of the city.Your guide will take for a walk through the cobblestone streets, from the church of St. Donat and the Cathedral of St. Anastasia, to the Benedictine convent of St Mary and the largest Roman forum on the East of the Adriatic, founded by the first Roman Emperor Augustus. You will also discover some contemporary attractions of Zadar. One of them is the Sea Organ, the site that is a blend of human ideas and the energy of the sea, a place for relaxation and contemplation with the sounds of the endless concert of the "Orchestra of Nature". Walking further down the waterfront, you will discover the “Greeting to the Sun”, an impressive urban installation. Simultaneously with the “most beautiful sunset in the world”, the lightning elements turn on and produce a marvelous light show in the rhythm of the waves and the sounds of the sea organ.
