TUESDAY ZLARIN or VODICE – KORNATI/SALI (B, L, D)
Today we visit the Kornati National Park which is actually made up of 100 islands and reefs.

The islands are rich in fish and cultural and historic remains. There are ruins of old Ilyrian fortress, Roman villas, the old Christian church of St. Mary and medieval fortresses and settlements among these islands.

Zadar was important for centuries as the metropolis of Dalmatia, and today it is the center of the region. It has been a city rich in monumental heritage of world importance and the most visited sites include the Roman forum dating back to the 1st century AD, the church of St. Donatus from the 9th century AD – the most famous Medieval basilica and the symbol of the city, the mighty city walls with the representative Port and Land gates from the 16th century AD.
