Zadar isn’t as well known as its coastal neighbors like Split, the famed walled city of Dubrovnik, or even the capital Zagreb. In the past, it has been overlooked as a destination by many people traveling to Croatia, but that’s now changing.

And, let me tell you that this ancient seaside city is jam-packed with incredible sights. I know; it’s my hometown!

Not being able to travel and visit places you want feels very sad, but we support that safety must come first.

The COVID-19 crisis has hit the travel industry exceptionally hard and now that certain areas are starting to reopen it’s more important than ever to ensure we’re ready for travelers and can provide a safe and healthy experience.

There are many guests who were writing to us and planning their holidays in Croatia, but for now, that is not so easy or possible to travel.

We hope that the current situation with COVID-19 will be better soon, so people can once again travel and enjoy exploring the beautiful sites and cities that Croatia has to offer. We are ready to host them and provide them a safe, and excellent experience.

The good thing about this situation is that Croatia really reacted quickly, so we did not have a huge impact on our health system like some other countries are now facing.
