For centuries the metropolis of Dalmatia, and today the centre of the region, Zadar has been a city of rich monumental heritage of world importance visible at every step even today: the Roman forum dated to the 1st century AD, the church of St. Donatus dated to the 9th century AD – the most famous Medieval basilica and the symbol of the city, the mighty city walls with representative Port and Land gates from the 16th century AD, and numerous palaces, villas and other monumental heritage. The town is full of great restaurants packed in the center and already mentioned historical monuments that can be found in and around the city – of special interest is the famous Zadar Sea Organ.

Day 4 Tuesday ZADAR - ISLAND MOLAT or OLIB
Early departure for Island Molat or island Olib (depending on available space in the small harbours of these two islands). The Molat island is situated in the northern part of Zadar's archipelago. The peace, silence and necessary minimum of infrastructures (4 restaurants, 3 shops) guarantees an holiday far away from usual tourism. Olib is a place where you can rest your body and soul. There are no cars or trucks, just a tractor or two, which are necessary for the habitants of Olib. The island has numerous beautiful beaches. When you come ashore you cannot but notice a beautiful sandy beach near the port. The village is small but wide. The island was inhabited already in the antiquity. The parish church is from 1632, and about twenty Glagolitic codices from the 16th - 19th century are kept in the parsonage.

After breakfast and morning swim, we sail to the peaceful island of flowers called Ilovik where we have a stop for swimming. Departure for the island of Mali Lošinj (lunch on route), which is one of the most popular islands on the northern Adriatic due to the abundance of pine trees and clear waters. Mali Lošinj is among those places with the sunniest days per year in Europe. Take a walk along the harbor and dare to take a night swim on the sandy Cikat beach or visit nearby, picturesque, town of Veli Lošinj (only 5 km away). Overnight in Mali Lošinj.
