You had an unforgettable time in Dubrovnik town and area nearby during your vacation, but every journey must come to an end. However, it can be sweetened to the end. Transfer from Dubrovnik to Zadar Airport will provide you with several incredible optional breaks, where you will be able to enjoy the beauty of both nature and culture that Croatia and the coastal region of Dalmatia offer.
Ston (Peljesac) de-tour
Once you came to Ston and Mali Ston part of the Peljesac peninsula, there is no shortage of things to do. Some top highlights include walking through the famous fortifications – one of the longest Walls in Europe, 5km long. Enjoy eating the oysters – traditionally farmed of Mali Ston bay that is good accompanied by a glass of local wine. Or what about checking among the oldest functioning saltworks in Europe? With so many iconic landmarks, Ston is the kind of dream destination that has been frequented by tourists for centuries.
Neum (Bosnia & Herzegovina border)
Our next stop will be in Neum, the territory that separates Dubrovnik from the rest of Croatia and belong to Bosnia and Hercegovina, so you need to prepare the passports. Neum is the only town in Bosnia and Hercegovina that comes out to the sea, and that is a gratitude to the old Dubrovnik Republic since 1699. We can have a quick lunch here or traditional Turkish coffee delight. This is the only town accepting all currencies from the neighborhood like Kuna (Cro), KM (BiH), and Euro. Today, Croatia is building the Peljesac bridge that will connect Dubrovnik and Split without any borders through other countries.
Krka national park
Furthermore, if you’re looking to soak up some of the charms of nature then Krka river canyon and its stunning waterfalls are certainly unavoidable points for you to take a break. Krka National Park lies about 10km inland from Sibenik town in this part of Dalmatia. Named after the Krka River, the Park covers an area of just over 142 square km and includes two-thirds of the river itself. The top attraction of the Park is its magnificent waterfalls, including the famous Skradinski Buk falls which are one of Croatia’s most famous sights.
If we eventually reach Zadar a bit earlier, we can explore all its historical and natural beauty before the flight. Zadar is the main city in North Dalmatia with about 75,000 inhabitants. It is most famous for its Old Town and Sea Organs. It is a beautiful place to explore Roman ruins and Venetian architecture, marvel at a solar-powered light show, enjoy fine dining and watch a spectacular sunset to the soothing sounds of the sea. Sea organ is the installation of the brilliant architect Nikola Basic symbolizing the communication between man and nature. This stirring monument consists of 300 multi-layered glass plates that absorb solar energy during the day and create a spectacular waterfront light show just after sunset. These installations are a holiday for all your senses.
Do not forget to visit the church of St Donath – protector of Zadar town, drink a coffee at one of the most beautiful squares – Square of the 5 Wells, or have lunch in Fosa.
And now that your eyes and heart are full of experiences, you can board your plane with no regret!
