New York Times puts Zadar on the list of 52 places to go in 2019

By  Jan 11, 2019

New York Times has recently published the list of 52 places to go in 2019, inspiring all the travelers who are currently planning their vacation. Since this is a really visited website, it's a great promotion and honor to be featured on the list. Croatian representative is Zadar, placed 11th on the list, alongside with nearby islands.

David Farley writes in the article that after the Croatian soccer team captured the world’s attention in the World Cup last summer – its team captain Luka Modric’s inspiring play was particularly notable – soccer fans revved up their search engines and learned that Mr. Modric hails from Zadar, a pretty, compact town on the Dalmatian Coast.

- Zadar is often ignored as visitors hopscotch from Istria in the north to Split and Hvar and then down to Dubrovnik. But that may be about to change, especially withRyanair adding regular flights from Prague, Hamburg, Cologne and Nuremberg, starting this spring. Beyond Zadar’s medieval core, the city’s seaside promenade and music-making “sea organ,” created by the architect Nikola Basic, is a must-see (or hear). The magical sunsets alone were enough to wow Alfred Hitchcock, who visited the city in 1964, and said he’d witnessed the most beautiful sunset in the world there. The town is also a gateway to untrammeled islands, especially Dugi Otok; an hour-and-20-minute ferry ride takes visitors to the sparsely populated island with uncrowded beaches and taverns serving seafood. Seeking ultraclean waters? Then head to the island of Pasman, where the currents frequently change, making the surrounding waters some of the cleanest in the Adriatic – Farley explains.

Will you add Zadar on your 2019 travel list?
