This twin-centre holiday is the perfect choice for couples, friends or families looking to combine a beach holiday with exciting sightseeing of historic Zadar on the Adriatic coast.

 

 

Established under the name of Iader in the 4th century BC, Zadar was a settlement of the prehistoric tribe of Liburnians.

 

In the 1st century BC, Zadar came under Roman rule and became a Roman colony. Today visitors can see the remains of the Roman forum in the centre of Zadar.

 

 

In the early Middle Ages, Zadar came under the Byzantine rule and became the centre of Byzantine administration over the province of Dalmatia.

 

The symbol of Zadar is the curious 9th-century church of St Donatus. With an unusual round layout, this church is one of the best examples of Pre-Romanesque architecture in Europe.

 

Murter Island is very easy to reach and unspoiled by tourism; this peaceful oasis is a great choice for a relaxing summer holiday.

 

Throughout history, Murter has always been known for its high-quality olive oil production and boasts some of Croatia’s most beautiful beaches.

 

The most famous is the Slanica beach situated in the town of Murter.

 

This beach has both sandy and rocky parts, with various sporting facilities, restaurants and beach bars.

 

Note: A minimum of 2 people is required.
*Optional trips will need to be added to the proposed itinerary upon booking of this holiday. One of our team will be happy to discuss these options with you.
