Cruising to Zadar, Croatia

Sitting on Croatia's Dalmatian Coast, Zadar is unsurprisingly popular with sun worshippers and beach lovers, although this is no normal seaside town, and in fact offers a heck of a lot of history and culture to compliment its coastal attractions.

Of course, if all you want to do is relax in the sun and take a dip in the crystal clear sea then you'll have plenty of opportunities to do that in Zadar, with Kolovare beach being the closest to the city centre and hugely popular among tourists and locals alike. If you do plan on exploring the coastline, be sure to keep an eye out for the Sea Organ, which consists of 35 pipes that harness the motion of the waves in order to create a musical effect.

Zadar's Old Town is also home to more than 30 ancient churches, with the most impressive of these being St Donat's Church. Inside you'll find a museum detailing the history of the region, while classical music concerts are also regularly held here. For a more in-depth look at Zadar's past, be sure to check out the Archaeological Museum, which contains artefacts dating all the way back to prehistoric times.
