North Dalmatia E-mail

Northern Dalmatia is full of accommodaion such as hotels, apartments, rooms, campsites and pensions. Private accommodation which includes rooms and apartments is one of the largest parts of the whole accommodation in north of Dalmatia.

North Craotia has most developed islands and they are located in Northern Dalmatia. This region extends over 500 islands and islets in total. Well known islands in Northern Dalmatia includes island of Pag, Silba, island of Ugljan, island of Murter, island of Vir, Pasman, island of Krapanj, Zlarin, Iz, and Molat. Group of islands that were declared as national parks are National Park Kornati, National Park Krka and National Park Paklenica.. On many of these islands guests will have the chance to see the stone ruins of many historical cities as well as beautiful vineyards and olive trees.

Beauty and singularity of the archipelago moved authorities in 1980 to proclaim a bigger part of that area national park. Since then certain modifications of its borders were made, so that nowadays Kornati National Park occupies the area of about 220 km2 (54.000 acres). There are 89 islands, islets and reefs within the area of Kornati National Park (238 km of the coastline), what makes it the most indented group of islands in the Mediterranean.

The land part of Kornati National Park covers less than 1/4 of its total area, but the values of its landscapes, the "crowns" (cliffs) on the islands facing the open sea, and interesting relief structures, make this part of Kornati National Park unique. Besides, the Kornati submarine area, whose biocenosis are considered to be the richest in the Adriatic Sea, and also the magnificent geomorphology of the sea bed attracts divers from all over Europe to come and enjoy in unforgettable submarine adventures. With its surface area of 96 km2, from the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea to the highest peaks of the Velebit Mountains, Vaganski Vrh (1757 m) and Sveto Brdo (1753 m), Paklenica abounds with numerous natural wonders and phenomena, which is why the entire area was proclaimed a national park in 1949. And rightfully so, as this region is simple and unusual in its connection between the sea and the mountains, rich in beech and black pine forests, its deep canyons cut vertically into the Velebit ridge, its karst formations and numerous caves and pits.

The Krka National Park was proclaimed a national park in 1985, the Park encompasses an area of 109 sq km along the Krka River: two kilometers downriver from Knin to Skradin and the lower part of the Cikola River. The park has 7 waterfalls, the most attractive one is the waterfall of Skradinski (Scardona) buk. According to my experience the boat tour to Visovac and Rosky Slap is not so interesting.

The National Park Paklenica, with its backdrop of Stari Grad (the Old City), comprises of two canyons, Large and Little Paklenica. The canyons stretch up to 400m high. Northern Dalmatia also encompasses two nature parks which are very special because of their beauty and uniqueness. Telascica is the Natural Park in the extreme south of Dugi Otok island. It is extended around the homonyms bay that goes deeply into the island for over 8 km giving shape to the biggest natural harbor of the Zadar's Archipelago with its manifold little islands. Vransko lake (in the past Vedro blato) distanced only 13 km from Murter island, 10 km from Pašman island and 30 km from Ugljan island. An example of cryptodepresion - the lake bed is underneath the sea level and the lake surface is over the sea level. The surface of this salt lake rich with fish is 30,15 km2. The water flows down steep cliffs and in the 18th century (1752-1770) dug out channel Prosirka in to the Pirovac bay.

Dalmatia is filled with fantastic tourist destinations which offer relaxation, recreation and fun. Some of the larger destinations in Northern Dalmatia are Zadar, Sibenik, Biograd na moru, Vodice, Primosten, Rogoznica, Sv. Filip i Jakov, Skradin, Starigrad – Paklenica, Pirovac, Raslina. Due to its rich history, each place offers you a little taste of the past while enjoying its natural beauty and modern day amenities. Zadar is the largest city in Northern Dalmatia with more then 70,000 inhabitants. Zadar, is a three thousand year-old town. It was the capital of Dalmatia for many centuries. The Zadar peninsula still preserves the ancient street grid of the town, as well as a Roman forum dating back to the first century AD. The pre-Romanesque Church of St. Donatus dates back to the ninth century, and it is undoubtedly Zadar's most famous site. However, the town is also renowned for having the most beautiful Romanesque churches in Croatia, such as the Cathedral of St. Anastasia (13th century), the Church of St. Chrysogonus (12th century) and the Bell-tower of St. Mary (1105).
