Dalmatia - Zadar
Zadar is a city with three thousand year old existence, a city that was the main Liburnian-Illyrian centre. The city is surrounded by the sea, islands and islets, mountains and rivers, lakes and canyons.
The entire region is bathed in the sun, sea, rich vegetation, olives and wine, fish and music, stone houses and small harbours. It proudly shows its three faces, its three souls. Mountainous face includes the northern part of Nature Park Velebit and the area of National Park Paklenica, which preserves the unique canyon of white karst rocks, relief and caves surrounded by rich flora and fauna. Littoral soul extends throughout the entire coast, its caves and cliffs, beaches and harbours, and spreads to the Nature Park Vrana Lake, known for the exceptional number of bird species. Insular face thanks the nature for the beauties of the Nature Park Telascica (Telaščica), the unique bay and the most protected natural harbour on the Adriatic coast.
The islands of Zadar archipelago are small, with no traffic and transport other than bikes and few tractors. They are covered in pine trees, rounded with pebble beaches, medicinal mud and healthy plants. One can hear only the sounds of crickets, dog bark, church bells and the crackles of shutters.
