kilometers of the picturesque coastline and archipelago of more
than 300 islands and islets rich in peaceful sandy beaches and
numerous little coves and bays.

In its history Zadar passed through different stages of development.
In the 9th c. B.C. Zadar had been known as a settlement of Liburns
(Illyrians). Then it become a Roman colony. Later, Zadar was a
certain time under the Byzantine rule. Since the 9th c.,
well-known as the period of Croatian rulers, the Croats have been
gradually settling in.

monuments tell us about the rich history of the city (city walls,
the Roman Forum, numerous early Christian churches, various buildings
dating from Romanic, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods,
famous collection of sacral silver and gold objects, etc.). The first
university center, on the eastern Adriatic coast, was founded in Zadar.
