Numerous streets and squares serve as open-air galleries, showcasing artists at work. 

Don’t forget to savor the renowned “Rapska torta” cake, whose recipe is a closely guarded secret. Take a stroll up to Kamenjak Hill to witness a breathtaking sunset.

Admire the 16th-century AD city walls, Port and Land gates, and former noble residences. Experience modern attractions like the Zadar Sea Organ and “The Greeting to the Sun.”

Overnight in Zadar

Explore the Kornati archipelago, with its 140 islands and dramatic inlets where some plunge steeply into the sea. Discover the Kornati National Park, rich in fish and cultural remnants, featuring ancient fortresses, Roman villas, the Church of St. Mary, and Medieval structures. Spend the night in Telašćica Bay on Dugi Otok, with the option to explore white cliffs dropping 90 meters into the sea and a salt lake named “Mir.”

After breakfast and a morning dip, sail to Lošinj, known as “the sunshine island”. Enjoy the scent of pines, wildflowers, and herbs as you explore Mali Lošinj with a guided walking tour and visit the Museum of Apoxyomenos, dedicated to an ancient bronze athlete statue.

After a morning swim the journey takes us to Cres, possibly stopping at the lovely Susak island if weather allows. Cres, in its pristine magnificence, features a long and narrow landscape with olive groves, vineyards, oak and beech forests, and impressive stone walls.
