Zadar (see historical names) is a city in Croatia on the Adriatic Sea. It is the centre of Zadar county and the wider northern Dalmatian region.

Ima li što ljepše od šetnje pored mora. Ima, ukoliko nas uz šetnju prati muzika orgulja svirana od strane valova. Ako to želite doživjeti, Zadar je pravo mjesto gdje se morate uputiti. more Reccomended by beso on 28.07.2011
