BEST HONEYMOON DESTINATION Starting from 43,990 p.p on twin sharing basis

Not rated yet.

Ever dreamt of being in a secluded island? To disconnect and unplug yourself......and let youself be lured by the guiles of the sea and sun. 

Zagreb: Zagreb has culture, arts, music, architecture, gastronomy and all the other things that make a quality capital city – it's no surprise that the number of visitors has raised sharply in recent years. Croatia's coastal attractions aside, Zagreb has finally been discovered as a popular city-break destination in its own right.

Zadar: Boasting a historic old town of Roman ruins, medieval churches, cosmopolitan cafes and quality museums set on a small peninsula, Zadar is an intriguing city. It’s not too crowded, it’s not overrun with tourists and its two unique attractions – the sound-and-light spectacle of the Sea Organ and the Sun Salutation – need to be seen and heard to be believed.

Detailed Itinerary

 

DAY 01: Arrival Zagreb – Zadar

Welcome to The city of Zagreb, capital of Croatia, on the historic and political threshold between East and West, illustrates both the continental and Mediterranean spirit of the nation it spearheads. Sitting at one of its Viennese style cafés, strolling leisurely around its streets and promenading through its parks, it’s like you’re starting out on a love affair with this city and its people.

This is a 3 hour journey and you can stop in between for a coffee or snacks. Dobrodošli (Welcome) to the city of Zadar, a city of exceptional history and rich cultural heritage, a city of tourism. Check into Success Apartments, walk by the stunning beach opposite Success Apartments or the olive tree forests pathway.You can end the day and have a meal at Santorini restaurant right next to the apartment - overlooking the sea.

Zadar's nightlife is neither sceney nor divided into old and young, so in most places you'll find an unpretentious mix of people.

While the Old Town is an atmospheric place to spend your evenings, you can also spend time in places like Borik, Diklo and Kolovare, to catch the sea breeze and watch the sun go down. Zadar's sunsets are supposed to be the best in the world. Apparently, Alfred Hitchcock agreed.

Young Croatians are a pretty cosmopolitan lot, and you would be surprised how urban the culture is.

Overnight: Zadar

Meal: NA

 

  • DAY 02: Zadar

Highlight:
Zadar walking tour with Maraschino liqueur and Pag Cheese tasting

After your breakfast, here you can wander quiet streets of marble, sprawl undisturbed on pine-scented beaches and sail to remote islands, deserted except for tiny konobas – restaurants catering mostly to fishermen. The walled port of Zadar with its central geographic location makes it the best base for exploring all of Croatia.

 

Zadar Walking tour - We start the day by walking around Zadar’s historic centre with free Maraschino liqueur and Pag Cheese tasting. If there is a breeze, we start at the sea organ on the promenade, an art installation consisting of a series of pipes cut into the promenade. Here, you can sit on the white stone steps listening to the symphony of nature created by the action of waves on the underwater pipes. The same artist also created the Monument to the Sun, a large disc of solar-powered cells that becomes a multi-coloured disco ball as the sun sets. More classical sights include the Roman forum, of which only a few columns and an altar remain. Stones from here were used to build the neighbouring rotunda of 9th-century St Donatus Church and are clearly visible. Zadar's 12th-century cathedral has three beautiful portals that would not look out of place in Tuscany, and a bell-tower to climb. Close to an impressive city gate, the church of St Simeon contains a beautifully crafted silver reliquary.

At the end of the tour you can take your time listening the unique sound of the Sea organ or enjoy a view of the beautiful sunset.

Overnight: Zadar

Insider Information

Three towns in Croatia are famous for their traditional lace: Pag, Lepoglava in northern Croatia, and Hvar. Each type of lace has its own look, but lacemaking in all three locations has been inscribed on UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Pag needlepoint lace, or paska cipka, is perhaps the most well known of the three. It typically follows an intricate, circular pattern. Today, this centuries-old art is passed down by expert lacemakers who teach year-long courses. Lace is sold at many specialty shops and markets, but beware vendors who sell several identical lace pieces – these are likely manufactured. Handmade lace is incredibly intricate, and each piece is unique.

Drink your way down Tkalčićeva The fairytale street of Tkalčićeva, which snakes up from focal Jelačić trg, was once the flowing stream of Medveščak. The little sidestreets leading off it, Splavnica (from splav, raft) and Krvavi most ('Bloody Bridge'), link to its watery origins and colourful past as the flashpoint in local disputes over the centuries. For two decades, this atmospheric thoroughfare has provided Zagreb with its prime bar crawl, a constant current of revellers moving from spot to spot. Venues move in and out of fashion, but you're pretty much guaranteed a good time at the Funk Club, a regular café by day, a lively DJ basement by night. The buzz around the horseshoe bar, as thumping beats come up from the cellar, is as sassy as anywhere on Tkalčićeva. The more recently opened Rakhia Bar specialises inrakija grappas, as well as sought-after Velebitsko beer and craft brews from the Visibaba range.

While on holidays in Croatia, no matter where you are, you’ll find something to treat your taste buds. When in Dalmatia, make sure you order any fresh fish that you see on offer. Trust us, a Dalmatian chef knows how to grill fish to perfection, so it’s something well worth sampling. A unique Croatian dish you’ll want to try is a black risotto made from cuttlefish called crni rižot. If you are not a fan of seafood, be sure to order pašticada, a traditional beef dish, which is marinated for 24 hours in garlic, wine and herbs. Pašticada has a rich dark sauce and is served with homemade gnocchi, and best enjoyed with a glass of the Dalmatian Plavac Mali red wine. Other must-try foods are octopus salad, krafne and burek.. ..just don’t blame me for your expanding waistline. Local tip: don’t let the abundance of pizza ovens seduce you! Although the pizza in Croatia is indeed fantastic, you also need to be on the lookout for small, often family-run local restaurants called konobas.

Over the last few years Dubrovnik's finest grape juice for grown-ups, Malvasia (not to be confused with Malvasija from the rest of Croatia) has started to appear on restaurant menus. Nab this deliciously dry white when you can, or head out into the Konavle vineyards to seek it out yourself.
