riva is the wide wide promenade by the sea
They say they have nicest Riva, the waterfront promenade in the country and I guess they're quite right. It's wide, spacious, shaded by side with park like green belt with benches and borders to historic facades of the city; it begins by the Liceum and ends by the Greeting to the sun. Its pavement is pleasant texture of small fractures of rock which is by the edges strenghtened with stone, beyond it - sea and views towards islands. Mankind of all walks and statuses, local and foreign, gaze and contemplate at the sunset, which is spoken about in superlatives (such as' the most amazing sunset in the world'... hm) but on a rainy day ... it's still one of the best walks in the city, with little less romantic rain showers or with gentle rains. To see how the drops end in the sea water has some charm, too.
People on Zadar riviera are...
People on Zadar riviera are very friendly, especially in little villages on islands. Summers are very dry here so if you can, save the water. Water is very precious so instead of some lush gardens you can see, equally beautiful, cactuses!
Customs' Gate is a real off the beaten path sight and not easy to find when in Zadar. Actually, it is hidden inside the fish restaurant of "Foša". During the times of Venetian rule in Zadar, it used to be the only entrance to the town for those ariving by the boats.
There was a wooden bridge on stone columns from the Customs' Gate to the Land Gate but unfortunatelly it dissappeared during centuries.
Islands of Zlarin, Obonjan,...
Islands of Zlarin, Obonjan, Kaprije, Zirje, and Krapanj - Southwest of Sibenik lies the island of Zlarin, famed among coral and sponge hunters since the fifteenth century. The museum in Zlarin testifies to that tradition. Even today a souvenir coral necklace will remind you of this special island during the long winter in the city. To the west of Zlarin is the Island of Obonjan, known also as the Island of Youth. The island of Kaprije was named after capers, a Mediterranean plant whose buds are used as spice. Many yachts drop anchor in one of the numerous coves of Kaprije. Zirje is the outermost of the inhabited islands in the Sibenik archipelago. It is ideal for fishing, and there are many perfect bays for yachts. From time immemorial it served as a defensive outpost and the ruins of a sixteenth century fort can still be seen. Krapanj is the smallest and lowest of the inhabited islands in the archipelago: 0.36 sq km and 7 meters high. It is also the most densely populated. Sponge diving is the main occupation.
