Zadar unusual and cheap: What to see?

Lots of surprises

Zadar isn't just a regular beach town in Croatia. When you explore it more, you'll find out that there is a lot to see. 

Open sky gallery 
Starting our journey on Brodarska street, there's an open gallery to admire. Its accessibility is its uniqueness - all pictures are painted outside the building and it's so pretty and colorful! Therefore, it's a place of art for anyone. Look at these:

Greet the Sun
... as many others who come here to enjoy special time at a special place. Near this Greeting of the Sun, there's also Sea Organ, which employs sea as a composer. Moreover, the Greeting is lit in the way the Organ plays.
My advice is, however, not to come there around sunset when it's busiest. It has much better atmosphere later at night, when there are only few people and it's quieter. My favorite memory of the whole trip was when we danced salsa on the lightning floor around midnight :)

Friday night fever
If you could spend only one night in Zadar during the high season, let it be Friday. Terraces are full of relaxed people and lots of talented musicians then. 

Visit the historic center
Mediterranean architecture and Roman ruins - these places characterize old town Zadar the most. Colorful streets in the area are worth the walk as well.

Find the Sphinx
Really, I'm not lying, there's real Sphinx in Zadar. Even though its origin is doubtable, it's perfect for amazing pictures anyway. For accurate navigation, click here.

Spread your wings
Well, at least on a picture again :) Although this wallart is a balloon shop's ad, the fact is, that it's a perfect photowall. You can find it at Ul. Stjepana Radica, the street which continues from Gradski bridge between old and new town.

Don't miss sunset
Not a chance! Zadar coast is fit for amazing sunset watching. If you don't want to do this alone, go to the city center again - you'll be a part of community that came to see such amazing natural scenery.

Visit nearby little islands 
They could be a full trip on their own - Zadar archipelago includes 300 islands! We visited the nearest island Ugljan for 4 € roundtrip and discovered such a clear water and a sandy beach (Croatian beaches are mainly pebbly).

Another amazing nearby destinations are the island of Dugi otog, national park Telaščica, national park Kornati and others.

Better to see it on your own eyes than only read about it ;) :)
