Read our post „Zadar Weekend escape“ and make the most of your 48 hours in Zadar.

Weekend in Zadar


1. Accommodation

Staying in private accommodation has been a popular option in Zadar for decades. Before booking an apartment, ask yourself what is the most important to you. Maybe you want to wake up, look out the window and enjoy amazing view of the sea or you wish that the city center is at your fingertips. Check our hand-picked selection of private apartments in Zadar on our website.

However, if you prefer great food and complimentary breakfast and dinner included, quality wellness and spa treatments then you should check hotels that we suggest.

2. Virtual Reality of Zadar’s history

Zadar VR


Once you are in Zadar do not miss the chance to take one-of-a-kind activity in Croatia. Take Virtual Reality guided tour through Zadar old town centre and step into the past of the city. You will be surrounded by historical buildings and people, move around and hear most interesting stories about what you are looking at the moment. Afterwards, you will take off the VR glasses and be able to compare the present condition of a specific part of the city.

3. Private boat cruise to the islands

The best way to experience sea and islands is on the private boat tour. Hop on and off from island to island and discover attractive towns and secret coves. The skipper is on your disposal and you will have the boat only for yourself.
The cost depends on the route, boat and date, but we can assure the best prices and quality. For example for 4 hour cruise through Zadar channel you will pay 130,00 Eur per group. Contact us via info@magic-croatia.hror on mobile/Whats app +3891 619 4949 and we will find the best option for you.

4. Visit Greeting to the sun at night

Greeting to the sun is a circle of 300 solar panels paved into the ground. At night, the panels light up in an array of patterned lights that flash in dancing sequences. This modern installation is highlight of Zadar’s old town and definitely worth visiting, especially at night when it turns into light display or cool disco show as some visitors describe it.

5. Jeep safari
