As most of Croatia, Zadar experienced a record number of tourists in 2016. In 2016, Zadar was voted Europe’s most popular travel destination in an online poll and welcomes around half a million guests every year. This 3,000-year old city sets an example for how reconstruction and tourism development can mutually reinforce one other.
