#12 Zadar – the sardine seller

Despite being one of the most important (and beautiful) cities on the Adriatic coast, Zadar – Illyrian Jader, Roman Jadera, and later the main Byzantine possession in Dalmatia – sees infinitely fewer visitors than Dubrovnik and Split. The historic old town occupies a peninsula alongside a long, sheltered natural inlet; its bustling open market is located just inside the massive city walls, in a large open area it has occupied since the Second World War, when the city was held by Italy and bombed by the Allies.
