The town of Zadar, with its many culinary traditions, owns much of its fresh fare to the green region in its backdrop, known as Ravni Kotari. This fertile bit of the Dalmatian coast is a heaven for gardening and fruit growing, and remains largely oriented to agriculture in the present day, feeding not only the region, but also much of Croatia. From livestock fairs to international gallop races, the traditional lifestyles thrive here. But Ravni Kotari also abounds in diverse historical sites, vividly illustrating the region’s exciting history. Among others, you will find the pre-Roman Asseria, the Venetian tower Osridak and the Turkish Maškovića Han sites around here.
