Boutique Hostel Forum’s Birthday Bash

The b(ig) day is here, just round the corner. Boutique Hostel Forum celebrates its second birthday with its third major celebration. Naturally, the third celebration deserves a three-day party and that’s exactly the kind of treat Forum has in store for anyone in Zadar in the following few days. Witness a quite original birthday bash in the very heart of Zadar and here are some hints for what lies ahead.

Millenium Jump Splash in Zadar 2014

Sea, sand and sun. It’s the best kind of holiday. Water fun in its every form is an inevitable part of the experience as well. It’s perfect for the oh-so-needed refreshment during the summer heat, but it’s also great for the possible six-pack you’ll get by the end of the summer because of all the laugh you’ll get by splashing water. It doesn’t really matter if you go for the conventional pencil dive, wow the people on the beach with a swan dive or a forward flip, splash everyone around you by dropping a cannon ball or gain some sympathy for your belly flop (Ouch!). It’s all about fun and games, literally.

Blow the Candles with Forum - Boutique Hostel Forum

We are young but experienced. We are innovative but value tradition. We are romantic but not cheesy. We are curious and have no problem with sharing, but we respect privacy. We are modern but surrounded by history. In Zadar we are centric, but we are open to people from the north and south, east and west, because we are truly international. We welcome travelers and give them a place to stay with a homey feel (and they never want to leave). We are outspoken, friendly and welcoming. We are boutique hostel Forum!

Zadar Islands - Where Time Has Stopped

Embrace the silence. Embrace the peace and quiet. Embrace the pristine nature around you. It truly is Mediterranean as it once was.
