Although a magnet for tourists, the Croatian coast retains its calmness and has a soft pace. It is a truly soulful, contemplative, and inspirational place to visit, true nectar for many artists and sports adventurers, as well as for nature lovers and yogis. Croatia has kept the spirit of the Mediterranean as it once was, a retreat place for wandering souls. Croatia is just a 2-hour flight away from any city in Europe.
Of all the Croatian islands, you have surely not heard of this one - Iz island. It is a local, hidden, self-effacing beauty, 45 minutes boat ride from the magical city of Zadar, in central Dalmatia. Known mostly to sailors and nature lovers, Iz is one of many remote islands of the Adriatic Sea, at the door of a national park Kornati.
Boasting a historic old town of Roman ruins, medieval churches, cosmopolitan cafes, and quality museums set on a small peninsula, Zadar is an intriguing city. It’s not too crowded, it’s not overrun with tourists, and its two unique attractions - the sound-and-light spectacle of the Sea Organ and the Sun Salutation - need to be seen and heard to be believed.
