How to Make the Most of a Zadar Weekend Break

How to Make the Most of a Zadar Weekend Break, Zadar, Croatia (B)

Zadar is a much smaller version of Dubrovnik. It does not have the drama of the bustling walled city further south but also doesn’t have the crowds or massively overinflated prices. It’s a great destination for a weekend if you fancy a little culture, sun, sea and sand.

Sadly UK citizens may struggle with this weekend trip as the only flights to Zadar are from London and the timings are not ideal for a weekend. You can fly to Zagreb with only British Airways and Croatian airlines however Zadar is a 3 – 4 hour journey from the capital. Hardly conducive for a weekend break.

There are however plenty of flights to Zadar from other European cities so if you are based in Europe you can definitely visit Zadar for a weekend. Of course, you may also like to visit Zadar as part of an extended trip to Croatia. See our seven-day self-drive itinerary for more inspiration.

If you are based in Italy, or Greece you can also opt to take a ferry which will deposit you at the port of Zadar. Now that is definitely a fun way to travel! ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
