Croatia – Zadar

Zadar

We arrived in Zadar from Trogir by bus on June 24th and stayed for 5 nights in a small but beautifully renovated apartment in a very old building in the Old City in an area full of interesting and historic buildings – not to mention some nice bars and restaurants. Typing this up four months after our visit and keen to get up to date, hopefully the reader (if he’s still with us) will forgive the fact that this and subsequent posts are largely photographic with even fewer words than earlier posts……..

There are plenty of nice restaurants in Zadar as elsewhere. This was a simple mezze starter in a back street Cafe where we stopped to watch the Euro Championships and ended up staying for several hours.

There is a really good "green " market here with a fish market on the same site. This wasn't as big as some we had seen but was probably the best one we saw in Croatia up to this point

We enjoyed Zadar very much. I guess most people travelling  through Croatia would spend perhaps only a night or two here and that would be plenty to see everything but as slow travellers we like to take it easy and five days was good for us allowing us a couple of days of pure chilling (usually spent working on itineraries for future travels)  before moving on to wonderful Opatija.
