Even though I’m on the other side of the globe I was more than happy when I heard that my hometown was proclaimed as European Best Destination in 2016. How great is that?? I must emphasize that in this competition were participating cities like Athens, Milan and Paris, and that is what makes this success even bigger. When you visit Croatia, this small town with a population of only 80 000 people, has to be on your route. It is not just my advice, it is advice from the people from all over the world who voted during this competition.
Dalmatia is one of the regions where you can find very nice small towns with a great and long history. Town you shouldn’t miss is my hometown – Zadar. As you arrive you will see that those streets can tell you many stories.
Here is a quick reminder why Zadar has to be part of your travel plans in the near future…
Best time to come here is during summer – if you like big crowds. As you can see on my photos there’s nobody on the streets in the winter time but we love that. Zadar has a very long history, it is more than 3000 years old and has so much to offer, especially to those people who are interested in great historical stories. Narrow streets, old buildings and wonderful sights are something that will leave you speechless. St. Donatus church, Roman forum, long walls all around the peninsula and old harbor are just a small part of what you have to see. Today, visitors mostly come here to see Sea Organ – as the sea hits the coast Sea Organ is playing the music and it is a melody that you can hear only in Zadar. I’m sure you will be amazed.
Let’s take a walk!

Looking forward to read about your impressions after you visit Best European Destination 2016!
