Sightseeing in Zadar – Zadar is the cultural, economic and administrative centre of the region, located 16 kilometers from Zaton. The city is 3000 years old and for centuries it was the capital of Dalmatia. The city is very rich with world known cultural monuments which can be seen throughout the entire city. To this day the ancient street plans on the peninsula dating from the Roman Empire have been preserved. Zadar is also a town with many pedestrian areas. A pleasant walk along the ancient stone-paved lanes of the old town is perfect for learning more about the town's rich history and experiencing its modern pace of life. Zadar also boasts two truly unique attractions on the seafront: the Sea Organ, which produces music using the power of the waves, and the light magic of the new installation Greeting to the Sun. The symbol of the city is the pre-Romanesque church of St. Donat dating back to the 9th century. In Zadar you can see some of the most beautiful samples of Croatian Romanesque architecture

Beach, sightseeing in Nin

Nin, the oldest royal town in Croatia, is situated only 2 kilometres from Zaton on a small island ringed by long sandy beaches.

This old Croatian town is situated on a small island surrounded by long sandy beaches. Archaeological research gives us evidence of the present of man in  Nin  about 10 000 years ago. Near the old part of the town, findings prove that man lived there 5000 years ago.

Nin has been urbanised for the past 3000 years. Nin was founded by the Illyrian Liburnians in the 9th c. B.C. when it carried the name Aenona. Croats came to Nin in the 7th century, inhabited it and it became the first political, cultural and religious centre of the medieval times in this region.

The ancient town of Nin was home to the famous prince Višeslav, the bishop Grgur Ninski, prince Branimir, the kings Krešimir, Zvonimir and Tomislav, as well as the princes of Bribir who also lived in Nin.

Nin is also well known for two pre-Romanesque churches, St. Cross (Holy Cross) from the 9th c., which is known to be the smallest cathedral in the world and the church of St. Nicholas on a specific small hill from the 11th
