Dubrovnik was an absolute must on our list as we were planning our trip to Croatia. Not only because we heard so many amazing things about it’s architecture, but also because my husband and I are major Game of Thrones nerd fans. Although I was very excited about visiting Dubrovnik, the actual visit was too crowded for my liking. I’m guessing the popularity of Game of Thrones and Dubrovnik as it’s filming location for King’s Landing has really blown up and left little room for strolling the streets without feeling claustrophobic.
Zadar is another Croatian coastline gem that is very similar to Split, but slightly smaller in size. It’s flat landscape makes it perfect for families for relaxing strolls through the town. The Limestone treatment on the streets and as building material gets illuminated at night by streetlights and open air cafe’s for a romantic vision of a historic town. Out of all the towns we visited in Croatia I would say that Zadar was most kid friendly. Only because they had this super fun fair type park next to the sea where children could ride carnival rides, jump in bouncy houses and play on the playground. Here is my top 7 list of things to do in Zadar with the family during the Summer.
