There are four national parks and several historical cities– all less than a 1,5-hour drive from Falkensteiner Punta Skala resort - that are true gems protected by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. Stone houses, narrow streets, grand palaces, and squares in Trogir, Šibenik, Zadar, Split and Nin are old up to several millenniums. What's most surprising and exciting- people still live in them!
Spend a part of your vacation in Zadar getting to know these places, visit local markets, sit in a bar terrace, order coffee and spend a couple of hours people watching… one of the main mottos of Dalmatian people is „pomalo“, meaning „no hurry“. Embrace it. People here don't do coffee to go. So, we like you to sit awhile and enjoy our coffee, like a local.
