The third place we visited was Zadar, located on the northern end of the Dalmatian Coast. We spent 3 nights here and stayed at the Villa Valentina. The hostess, Anna, was so nice and helpful and the rooms were comfortable. I would highly recommend anyone planning a trip to Zadar to look here first!
The city is very easy to walk around and the old town is on a peninsula with a wall around part of it. I really enjoyed the relaxed feel of the city. We wandered around and admired the simple beauty.
Kiwi growing at our hotel! There were fruit trees all over.
Zadar has an amazing Sea Organ! These rectangular holes are along the steps so you can sit and listen to the “sea play music”. That was Aubrey’s favorite part of the city.
We climbed many stairs to the top of this tower and were rewarded with beautiful views of the city, Adriatic Sea and surrounding islands.
Enjoying the last bit of daylight while listening to the Sea Organ on the steps. The waves were so beautiful as they rolled in.
This is Salutations to the Sun, designed by the same gentleman who created the Sea Organ. During the day it is a giant solar panel and at night it lights up and changes colors according to the waves! It was pretty amazing!
I know I mentioned before how excited I was for this trip and I was not disappointed! I loved, loved, loved this country! The food was delicious, the scenery was gorgeous and the people were so friendly. I still have two more locations in Croatia to share.
Thanks for stopping by and joining me in this virtual tour of Croatian vacation!
