  Top attractions in and around Zadar
There are four national parks and several historical towns that are part of the Unesco World Heritage and are under 1.5h drive from the Falkensteiner Resort Punta Skala. The stone houses, narrow streets, majestic palaces and squares in the towns of Trogir, Šibenik, Zadar, Split and Nin, some of which are several millennia old, are still inhabited and buzzing with life today.

Spend part of your vacation getting to know these places: visit the local markets, sit comfortably in a bar with a terrace, order a coffee and watch the hustle and bustle of the people for a few hours... One of the mottos of the Dalmatian inhabitants is "pomalo", which means "no hurry". Live by this motto. "Coffee to go" is obsolete here. So, sit down for a while in a cozy café and enjoy your coffee - just like a local.

Swim in the Kornati and Krka National Parks, watch bears in the mountains of Velebit, walk along turquoise waters in Plitvice Lakes National Park or visit the salt ponds near Nin. When you explore the area during this vacation, you will discover wonderful places!
