Zadar is connected by land, sea and air to Europe and the world, which makes it one of the most reachable destinations on the eastern coast of the Adriatic. Zadar is connected to the other parts and regions of Croatia by the latest motorway and with the capital city Zagreb to which you arrive in about three hours by road.
There is also a coastal road that is a little longer that offers travellers a more relaxed drive and the possibility to get to know areas and places in the inland.
As if the gods themselves were deciding about the foundations of ancient Zadar when they set it in the middle of the most exquisite scenery one could hope to find, with no less than five national and three nature parks in the immediate vicinity. The mythical Velebit Mountain extends in the northern part of the region, while in the south, Zadar is decorated with islands like pearls, whose bays are an endless inspiration for travellers.
Zadar Archipelago is a unique phenomenon in the Adriatic with its indentation and numerous islands. The islands are carefully covered by vegetation in a natural karst environment, with traces of life since the Stone and Iron Age to the contemporary times. The islands are connected to the city with regular boat and car ferry lines, so commuting in both directions takes place on a daily basis.
