      Zadar - How many days?

      Zadar Apr 10, 2015 at 10:09 AM

      Hi,
      My wife and I will be flying into Zadar this September and are planning to spend a few days there, before travelling onto Bosnia.
      We have two weeks booked, and initially were thinking one week in each location, and I have read that there are a few National Parks and Islands worth visiting in the surrounding area, and of course the city itself.

      My question, for anyone that has been there, is how many days would should we aim to stay in Zadar before moving on? Is one week too long, or does it sound about right?

      Thanks in advance

      Sea Organ and Plitvice Lakes from the airport

      Zadar Apr 6, 2015 at 8:57 AM

      Hi everyone,
      We are 3 girls studying in Germany. We really love Sea Organ and Greeting To The Sun. How can we get there from the Zadar Airport by public transportation like bus? Is there any special place to experience night life in Zadar?
      We also want to visit the Plitvice Lake. Is it easy to get there from the airport by bus? Do we have to book bus tickets online or we just simply buy them when we come?
      Thanks in advance,

    • Suggested intinary

      Zadar Jun 24, 2014 at 5:16 AM

      Hi, we are a family with 2 young children (3,6) travelling to Croatia in the summer. We have 12 nights flying into Dubrovnik and out of Zadar. I have already booked 4 nights in Dubrovnik but looking for suggested intinary to get to Zadar for our flight out. My wife is not very keen on moving very often, so really only looking for two bases along the route, 4 night each. There seems to be so many options, obviously the island look lovely so could island hop, but my current though is to drive along the mainline coast and stop at Makarska which looks very pretty with access via ferry/boat to the islands for day trips and possibility trip to split from there. I can't then decide if to stay at Zadar itself for the remaining 4 nights, or the smaller town of Sibenik, again as a base to visit the nearby national parks etc. Of course we will need time for beaches and relaxing too!

      Any thoughts on my suggested route and the places I have chosen. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    • Bus travel with kids

      Zadar Jun 21, 2014 at 9:44 AM

      Hi, very new to VT, but like it so far. Could anyone offer any suggestions...we are traveling to Croatia in July and from what I have read, it seems to be an ok idea to get around by bus rather than renting a car. Normally we would rent a car, but we really only plan on going to some national parks and to also get on the ferry and island hop. BUT, we would rent a car if some of you thought it would be better with 2 three year olds. We are an active family and hike a lot, so the kids are used to walking. My big question is during the peak season, how crowded are the buses and will there be a long wait?

      Would it be feasible to include main sightseeing objects (like Sakarun beach, the village of Bozava, Sali and Telascica Nature Park) in Dugi otok in one day trip travelling by scooter? What would be the recommended times of arrival and departure to/from Zadar (by ferry)?

      Old Serb tank on display in/near Zadar?

      Zadar Apr 5, 2014 at 8:06 AM

      Hello all
      I was doing a little googling recently and there were a couple of links talking about an old Serb T-55 which was left abandoned on a hill near Zadar. There were no details of it's exact location. There is a cemetery and an abandoned church in the same area. I think it has since been turned into some sort of local monument
      Does anyone know the location of this tank?
      Cheers everyone!

      Areas around Zadar to stay

      Zadar Jul 19, 2013 at 5:00 PM

      Hi! Just booked flight to Zadar for end of September- first time in Croatia, and have had quick trawl on t'internet to try and find best place to stay.
      We're there for 1 week. I've provisionally booked an apartment in the old town for us.

      Guessing that we can enjoy restaurants/ bars in squares/ churches/ museums etc, some local character, with chance to walk/ catch local bus to beaches etc.

      I haven't been able to find out much about the different areas of Zadar yet, and haven't go around to ordering LP/RG /DK guide yet, so taking the easy option and hoping that fellow VTers will be able to advise!!!

      Which other areas of Zadar offer restaurants/ bars/ local character?

      Any areas to avoid ie ' modern characterless tourist resorts'

      Looking on Booking. Com map, I see that the old town is more expensive than some areas north, on the coast, but there are small pockets that appear to have luxe hotels etc. I'm guessing these are near marinas?

      Some of these areas north of old town are on bus route.
      So, just weighing up - and getting brain drain ;-)

      I've checked out a few VTers Zadar pages, hopefully I've remembered to rate, but I'll be back again over the following weeks, so will be sure to do so!

      Any info gratefully received ;-)

    • bus from Plitvice to Split with possible stop for one night in Zadar

      Zadar Jul 6, 2013 at 2:01 AM

      I will be going from Zagreb to Plitvice NP in the afternoon of the 19th Aug in time to do one of the 2-3 hour walking trails then have the next day to see more of the park/lakes etc. I was planning on staying that night at Plitvice too but am now thinking I should get the 17:23 bus to Zadar and spend the night there, moving on to Split the next day. Does this sound like a good idea or should I just go from Plitvice NP directly to Split. Wondering if relying on getting a seat on the bus to Zadar from Plitvice is risky and if Zadar will be fun for one night...curious to see if it is 'the best sunset in the world'!

       And lastly, if I do stay one night in Zadar, should I be staying in the Old Town? I have a tentative booking at City Center One Apartments - located 200 metres from the Riva Promenade .

      Thanks!

      Pag Apr 17, 2012 at 4:52 PM

      Hi

      Planning to travel to Hvar - Pag - Zadar - Split - Zagreb - Dubrovnik on my trip around the balkans this september with one or two friends. some people on the forums are saying nothing will be happening in a lot of these areas in september i.e. it will be dead and it wont be worth going. will there still be a nightlife/bars open in september especially in zadar, pag, hvar and split?

      Also which would you recommend more? hvar or split if i had to choose between the two? is pag just for people into dance and electronic music? i sort of prefer rock music?

      Also i havent heard many good things about zagreb? is it not worth visiting.?

      please note that I am 22 so nightlife will be important. will be on a tight budget. but it will also be important to see some culture/history/scenery if possible. Also I will have limited time to spend so where should I spend more time?

      Also any more advice you have about these areas would help.

      I cant find good backpacking accommodation in a lot of these locations... it seems to be mainly hotels and guesthouses.... do they exist? recommend any?

      Is bus the best way to get between these locations? will it be expensive?

      Would be grateful if you could rank the 7 places in order of which I should definitely see i.e. 1 = must see

      Thanks in advance for your help
