The old town here is surrounded by sea on three sides and rivals Dubrovnik for charm. Much of the town's rich history is still evident - do visit the Roman Forum and the 9th century Byzantine church. The Riva sea promenade provides views out to the islands of Ugljan and Pasman and is a great place to enjoy wonderful sunsets. Its also the place to experience the sounds of Zadar's unique Sea Organ!
Without doubt this is one of Croatia's most beautiful national parks. Granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979 it is the country's most popular tourist attraction.

Deep forest, river gorges, blue waters and above all the waterfalls all combine to make this a must see destination.
