Get to Know Zadar

The city of Zadar is a real treasure trove of archaeological and historical monuments dating back to antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, as well as of numerous contemporary works of architecture, such as the world’s first Sea Organ (or Morske orgulje). Many churches and monuments from all periods of history have been preserved, and they reflect the art and architecture of all styles. It is only 12 km away from the hotel.
  • Church of St. Donatus
    The Church of St. Donatus is a monument that the city is most often associated with. According to tradition, the church was built by bishop Donatus in the 9th century, and its distinguishing features are its monumentality and unusual cylindrical shape.
  • Sea Organ
    The Sea Organ is a unique piece of architecture, an interesting and original combination of architecture and music. The flow of sea waves through the musical pipes that are installed beneath the sea creates an incredible sound - the so-called “sea music” - which fills the air around the wide promenade along the seafront.
  • Greeting to the Sun
    The Greeting to the Sun, an attraction known in Zadar for its beauty, is a light installation that matches the movement of the waves and offers a view of the Zadar channel, the islands and the sunset. Make sure to see it at night and enjoy the magical play of light, with the sound of the Sea Organ in the background.
  • The Most Beautiful Sunset in the World
    When the sun sets in Zadar, no-one sees it as the death of the day, but rather as the birth of new life. This is what makes it the most beautiful sunset in the world!

  • Maraschino Liqueur
    Maraschino liqueur is an authentic product of Zadar.
    It is made from the traditional recipe of an apothecary of the Dominican monastery, dating back to the 16th century. This preparation, made from the distillation of the Dalmatian maraschino cherry, bears the appellation “the king of liqueurs” with good reason.
  • Kalelarga
    The Kalelarga, Zadar’s main street, represents much more than a mere promenade to the people of Zadar; it represents a philosophy, a way of life, and a real shrine. Although it is no longer the only meeting place in Zadar, it remains a significant and popular area, a symbol of life and a reflection of the tumultuous times of past and present.
