Ancona became one of the major ports of the Adriatic between the thirteenth and fourteenth century, second only to Venice. However, in later years Ancona, like other Italian towns, became the scene of many battles connected to the wars of independence, and was also the target of foreign occupations, including the massive air bombing campaigns during World War II, which destroyed whole areas of Ancona, and badly damaged the port.
Zadar is a beautiful seaside city in the Dalmatia region. Important landmarks in Zadar are: the Roman Forum, St. Donatus' Church, St. Anastasia's Cathedral, St. Stosija's Church, St. Ilija's Church, St. Francis' Church, Five Wells Square, St. Mary's Church, the Citadel and The Land Gate.
Zadar is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination and is an ideal spot to visit if you are enjoying a Mediterranean holiday.
Some say that Zadar is one of Croatia's more underrated destinations. You'll find peaceful traffic-free streets following the ancient Roman street plan with Roman ruins and several medieval churches to explore. Giving the whole town a historical feel, massive 16th-century fortifications shield the city on one side with high walls running along the harbour.
The Old Town, where the port is located, has been rebuilt many times leaving a mesmerising mix of ancient and modern architecture.
There are many museums to explore in Zadar that can fill you in on the ancient and sometimes turbulent history of the region and after that the tree-lined promenade along Obala Kralja Petra Kresimira IV is perfect for a lazy stroll and also the perfect place to stop for a coffee and watch the world go by. An activity that is popular throughout Croatia.
Come the night, Zadar's large student population pours into the town's bars and cafés. You'll also find many restaurants in the town offering a wide variety of quality and prices.
For beach lovers, there are a few small beaches east of the Old Town and more to the west at Borik where the water is crystal clear and perfect for a dip on a hot Summer day. Many natives of Zadar head by boat either to the offshore island of Ugljan or further afield to Dugi Otok for a short break from the city.
