Solo travel in Croatia

During the life we are sometimes faced with moments of despair. For instance because of a breakup or some time because of fate we find ourselves to be alone. In spite of everything one of the best ways to get out again is to take a trip to restore self-confidence and clear up your mind.

Travel removes you from the familiar surrounding and takes you to unknown places. Above all it is better if the destination is far from home. Therefore a place where you hear a foreign language and where tastes and smells are different.

Therefore there is nothing better than to take a vacation to one of the best places in Croatia for solo traveller.
Here a tip for taking a seven day solo trip to the city of Zadar and the Croatian island Dugi otok.


Zadar short break for solo traveller

First of all it is the same how you travel to Zadar. Besides in the city center there is an international airport, a bus station and a big ferry terminal. Secondly Zadar is a city full of history that overlooks the Adriatic Sea. In other words there are many attractions to see.
During the evening of your arrival go straight to the waterfront. Walk through the old city park at the top of the peninsula. Then sit on the steps and listen to the music of the sea organ. In fact it is the tidal waves that beat the rhythm.
At evening follow the people as they make their way to the place called the sun salutation. Specifically from here take photographs of the sunset.
In this place you will be reconciled with life!


In particular when we travel alone we can only rely on ourselves. Thanks to this traveling helps us to increase self-esteem and courage but also to restore our balance.
However Zadar is a safe and absolutely quiet city.

Finally spend the first night in a B&B for example at Pansion Maria from Zoran Address Put Petrića 24, 23000, Zadar, Croatia
Phone +385 91516 1418
Zoran prepares a good breakfast and he is a friendly entertainer. He is always ready for a joyful chat.

For what to do and see during the stay in Zadar get inspired by the city’s website:
Here you will find all the latest events and news.

Dugi otok one of the 15 most beautiful Croatian islands

After your second day in Croatia finally take the late evening ferry from Zadar Gazenica to Brbinj. Besides the crossing takes 90 minutes in which you can relax in the ship’s lounge or enjoy the sea air outsite. At the same time as you sit let your thoughts flow. You are about to head to an island forgotten by time where life flows slowly.
For example use your vacation to experience something completely new.For instance why not dive and discover how beautiful the world is beneath its surface. Specifically in Dugi otok you
can dive in Bozava with Gaby and Hans Georg.
