Zadar

Zadar is a city in Croatia on the Adriatic Sea. It is the centre of Zadar county and the wider northern Dalmatian region. Zadar faces the islands of Ugljan and PaĹĄman, from which it is separated by the narrow Zadar Strait. The promontory on which the old city stands used to be separated from the mainland by a deep moat which has since become a landfill. The harbor, to the north-east of the town,is safe and spacious. Zadar is the seat of a Catholic archbishop.

Zrce is a long pebble beach on the Adriatic island of Pag in the northern part of the Croatian coast. It is located near Novalja, about 4 kilometers from the town‘s center. It is one of over 100 Blue Flag beaches in Croatia, having been given the award in 2003. The beach is a well-known Croatian summer destination for partygoers, with several discotheques and beach bars operating 24/7 during summer months, which earned it the moniker of Croatia‘s answer to Ibiza.
