Walking tour of Zadar's Old Town
Zadar combines ancient history and culture with innovation, creating a dynamic, vibrant city that has remained faithful to its ancient roots. In 2016, Zadar was voted the best European travel destination. Before you set off, get yourself a map of the city. These are available at any tourist office.
Zadar is an easily accessible old town that juts out into the Adriatic Sea. Here you can see authentic Roman ruins, in addition there are many museums worth seeing. It's best to start at Land Gate, at the small harbor of Fosa. From here, go through the gate and turn right into Five Wells Square (named after the five fountains that supplied water to the city until 1838). Turn right again at Smiljanica. Visit the Saint Simeon Church, where you can admire the golden sarcophagus of Saint Simeon. The medieval coffin is covered with gilded silver reliefs inside and out. A true masterpiece of culture.
To really get to know Zadar, you should spend at least a day in the city. For food and drink, there are countless restaurants and snack bars.
A day trip from Split to the Blue Cave
The Blue Cave is the first destination that you will see on your day trip from Split. The Blue Cave is located on the east side of the island of Biševo. The speedboat ride from Split to the Blue Cave takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. On this crossing, it is likely that you can watch dolphins. Especially in the morning, when there are still few people on the water, these sightings are particularly interesting. If possible, the boat will approach the dolphins so you can take unforgettable pictures.
The Blue Cave has been open to the public since 1884. From here you can explore the Blue Cave with a small boat, as the entrance to the cave is only 1.5m high. An experience that will be remembered for a long time.
The entrance fee for this is already included in the tour price.
