Zadar is a lively port city on the Dalmatian coast of the Adriatic Sea. This oldest, continuously-inhabited city of Croatia boasts of a rich heritage of ancient, Roman and medieval architecture. An old city wall guards the Old Town, which is home to several Roman and Venetian ruins, old churches and medieval convents. The Church of St. Donatus, the grand Cathedral of St. Anastasia with its imposing bell tower, and the genteel St. Mary’s Convent with its treasure of religious art are definitely worth a visit. The quirkiest attractions of Zadar, however, are its modern architectural wonders of the Sea Organ and the Sun Salutation. While the former is an architectural instrument, the other is a seaside monument that lights up at night. For many travelers, Zadar also acts as a junction town that connects the mainland to the surrounding islands off the Dalmatian coast by ferry boats.
