Nightlife info

Zadar has great nightlife--unpretentious and varied-and the best part is that most Zadar nightlife is located in the town's historic centre. As soon as the winter chill leaves Zadar's streets, the city's teeming population of students fill outdoor cafes and spill out of its bars.There are a couple of super-hip nightclubs but the biggest disco on the Croatian coast, Saturns, is about 16km northwest of Zadar in Nin.

A nest of little streets near the southwestern edge of town is an open-air meet market most nights of the week. On Stomorica, Varoska, Ljubavca and Miha Klaica there are a profusion of little bars with eclectic music programming.

 

Culture and history info

Zadar is an ancient city, built in the center of the Croatian Adriatic, full of historical and cultural monuments. It is three thousand years old, a city of old, tumultuous and dynamic history, often destructed, looted, devastated, every time emerging from the ruins stronger, richer and more beautiful.

Zadar appeared for the first time in history in the 4th century B.C. as a settlement of the Illyrian tribe of Liburnians – the name Jader was mentioned, and through history it changed into Idassa (Greek source), Jadera (Roman source), Diadora, Zara (during Venetian rule and later Italian) up to today’s name of Zadar. Zadar is the city with the oldest University among Croatians (1396). It was long ago the place where the first Croatian novel and the first newspapers in the Croatian language were created. It is protected by four guardian saints: Zoilo, Simeon, Grisogone and Anastasia.
