Zadar is a coastal city half way up the coast of Croatia. It would be a quiet place were it not for all the tourists, despite it being the end of the holiday season. This city is far more geared up for the summer tourist as apposed to Zagreb, with ice-cream parlors, fast food and restaurants around every corner. And there’s a lot of corners here. The centre is essentially a giant maze. There are even more tiny lanes than the capital, buildings are stuck together like Lego and rustic red roofs reach out to the horizon. In the old town, surrounded by water on three sides, there’s no room for roads, only one looping around the outside.
It’s a major ferry port here, partly my reason for being here and today I sail off to some islands by catamaran. (and for those in Scotland, Zadar is the twin town of Dundee! As far as I can see, it shares NO similarities!)
