5 reasons why you should visit Zadar and the region in spring
Zadar (Region) in Spring 2023
Spring is in the air! Leave the winter quiet behind, head outside and embrace the positive vibe of nature’s awakening. So, take a break and plan an escape to the lovely city of Zadar and its region. Here are a few compelling reasons why it’s a great idea for all fans of travelling, adventure, the Adriatic, and unique coastal towns:
1. Pleasant weather
Let the sunshine in! The timing is excellent to get a healthy dose of vitamin D, soaking up those first rays of sunshine. With increasingly warmer weather, but without the summer heat, the weather conditions are just perfect for being outdoors. All day long. Whether you are soaking up the sun on a terrace on the Roman Forum in Zadar or actively exploring the region, you generally won’t have to worry about the weather.
2. Less busy
Feel the pulse of the city, with less visitors around than during the summer. So, if you want to strike a pose for a photo at the modern attractions, Sea Organ and Greeting to the Sun, now is an excellent time to do so. From all angles, without haste. The same applies if you want to explore the most popular Croatian national parks Plitvice Lakes and Krka. You can expect less busy times there as well.

3. The best time to be active
Pleasant weather, less traffic and beautiful nature - simply perfect conditions for outdoor activities & adventure. Go bungee jumping off Maslenica Bridge, rock climbing in Paklenica National Park or rafting down the Zrmanja river. Go hiking to St Michael’s Fort on the green Ugljan island just across the channel. Go kayaking around the historical peninsula in Zadar, in Telašćica Nature Park or across Vrana Lake (nature park). Go cycling along numerous exciting trails in the Zadar region. After all, there are hundreds of trails to choose from.
4. Off-season prices
Grab your spring deal! Check out the flights to the Zadar Airport from across Europe, e.g. from the UK, Germany, Ireland, France, Poland, Czech Republic, Italy, and more, and look out for special prices. Your Boutique Hostel Forum on the historical peninsula in Zadar also has a few special offers for you. And that’s not all - many places of interest, among them national parks, have cheaper entry tickets during spring.
5. Event season warm-up
Just as the sun is warming up and nature awakening, so is the events calendar getting busier. So, take your pick and let an event of your choice be a reason more to visit Zadar in spring. Be it a world-wide event such as the Wings for Life race, or local food and sports festivals across the region.
